As always- I look for new ways to try old favorites.
For a long time I hesitated to eat cabbage- (I don't know why.) Now that I enjoy it- I try to find different ways to prepare it. Although cabbage has a definite flavor it marries well with many flavors. Sauteed cabbage is a quick go to for us...takes only a little time and almost no effort- but always tastes good. This is also a fast and easy way to prepare cabbage (or brussel sprouts.)
I chose Manchego for this as it is one of my favorite cheeses- it is a delicious Spanish sheep's milk cheese with a flavor can be adapted in many ways.
1 head of Cabbage
3 Cloves of Garlic-chopped
3/4 Cup Shaved Manchego
Preheat oven to 350.
Cut the cabbage into wedges about 1" thick.
On a sheet pan, drizzle a decent coating of olive oil over the entire surface. Place the pieces on the pan to coat one side in the oil and then turn them over. Salt and Pepper the tops of the cabbage, then top with the chopped garlic. Place in the oven for 15 minutes or until they start to brown. Take out of oven and turn over. You will need a spatula- carefully as to not separate the sheets.
Salt and pepper the tops again and replace in oven.
Cook for another 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle the shaved Manchego over the cabbage. Serve hot! Enjoy.
