Spicy Lime Cabbage

Last night I made this Spicy Lime Cabbage, adapted from this recipe from the kitchen. If there's one thing you make this week, make this cabbage - it's that good! I'm telling you! (Especially if you've made a New Year's resolution to eat healthier, this is the perfect recipe to incorporate into your plan.) Not to mention how gorgeous and colorful it is. The deep purple of the cabbage and lovely green of the avocado just look beautiful together. Without further ado, the recipe:

Spicy Lime Cabbage
1 head purple cabbage
2 avocados, diced
Juice of 3 limes
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne (the secret ingredient that made this so good!)
1/4 teaspoon honey (or sweetener of choice)
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cut cabbage into 8 equal wedges and brush with olive oil. Bake for about an hour.
  • While cabbage is baking, make the dressing: Whisk together lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, cayenne, and honey.
  • Drizzle dressing over cabbage when it's finished cooking, and top each serving with avocado.
  • Devour.

That sounds awesome! I'll have file it with the "what to do with that head of cabbage" recipes. For some reason cabbage seems to outlast everything else in the fridge.

Even just plain old grilled cabbage is so good! And cheap. I love cheap.
