Megan’s Comments:

I love when you can make a side for dinner that takes very little effort, and everyone loves. I recently tried this roasted cabbage and it turned out perfect! I was actually surprised how much everyone loved the taste and texture of these. Between this and kale chips, you will be set for fast and delicious sides.

Side note:

Cruciferous veggies such as broccoli, kale, cabbage, bok choy and collard greens, have a compound called indole-3-carbinol which helps your liver detox harmful toxins and estrogen. For balanced hormones and to get rid of PMS, eat cruciferous veggies daily!

Other Notes:

  • You can flavor these any way you like! Get creative with the spices!
  • You can use any kind of cooking oil you would like: Butter/ghee, coconut oil, olive oil.
  • You can use green or purple cabbage
