Garlic-Rubbed Roasted Cabbage Steaks
- 2 garlic cloves, large
- 1 2lb head green cabbage, organic
- 1 black pepper, freshly ground
- 1 kosher salt
- 1 ½ T olive oil

- Rub both sides of cabbage with smashed garlic.
- Use a pastry brush to evenly spread the olive oil over both sides of the cabbage slices.
- Finally, sprinkle each side with a bit of kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
- Roast on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Carefully flip the cabbage steaks and roast for an additional 30 minutes until edges are brown and crispy. Serve hot and Enjoy!
Roasted Sliced Rutabaga
Move over potatoes, there is a new root in town! Rutabagas are a great alternative to white potatoes since they’re higher in fiber and lower in carbs. They also contain a special prebiotic fiber that feeds good bacteria in the gut, which helps digestion and strengthens the immune system.
- 1 lb rutabaga
- 1 onion, sliced
- 3 T water
- 2 T olive oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- Prepare the rutabagas:
- Rinse and dry the rutabagas
- Trim off the top and bottom
- Use a pairing knife or peeler to remove the skin
- Slice rutabagas to desired thickness and arrange on baking sheet
- Add slices of onion
- Sprinkle the slices with water and oil, salt and pepper
- Bake until fork tender, approx. 35-45 mins.
