Baked cabbage with onions and carrots

Side Serves 6 2h 5 min
This takes a couple of hours to cook, but under 5 minutes to prepare and it needs very little attention along the way. It's nice with a poached egg cooked while the cabbage browns at the end, and perhaps with a scoop of nutty brown rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 cabbage
  • 1 large onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 carrots, cut in ½ cm slices
  • 4 tbsp stock, or water
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Method

Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 2h
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160°C/Gas 3.
  • Step 2

    Cut the cabbage into 8 or 10 wedges and trim away some of the woody core, leaving enough to hold each wedge intact. Arrange the wedges in a baking dish - try to fit them in a single layer. Scatter over the onion, carrot, seasoning, stock and oil. Cover tightly with foil and cook in the oven for an hour.
  • Step 3

    Turn the wedges, add some water if dry, then cook for another hour (covered). When tender, remove foil, turn up the oven (to about 200°C/Gas 6) and cook for another 10-15 minutes until the cabbage begins to brown at the edges.
