CSA Week 7: Cabbage Steaks

From guest blogger Lindsey Johnson: 

They sound weird, but don’t worry…they’re delicious.

I think that I am the dorkiest farm share holder in the history of farm shareholders. When I got to the farm stand and saw the gorge little cabbage…I may have been a little too excited. There is just something about seeing the new veggies getting plopped in my bag that makes me so happy and grateful that it’s summer.

Now, I could have chopped that cabbage real thin and garnished my tacos…I could have boiled the cabbage with a little corn beef, but my go to is ALWAYS broiling veggies


with a little oil and salt and pepper.

I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Then, I rinsed that puppy and chopped the core off. I didn’t even core the cabbage before I cut it into ½ – ¾ inch slices, like a cabbage steak if you will. I brushed with olive oil and sprinkled salt and pepper on each side. I ended up turning it over about halfway through cooking…I wanted both sides to get a titch browned.

Not going to lie…It was my favorite dinner. I had pan fried lake trout, roasted cabbage, and butter dill peas (from the freezer, don’t judge…) SO GOOD!!!

We’ve been eating the head of lettuce and greens like crazy! Salads and sandwich wraps. Again….so fresh, so fun, so delish!

Happy Wednesday…Happy 7th Farmshare week…
