Seared cabbage wedges
This cabbage recipe is perfect for spring, when the cruciferous crop is in season. Seared and roasted cabbage is topped with a protein-rich creamy Greek yogurt-and-bacon ranch dressing.
Serving Amount
  • 1 head cabbage, cut into 8 wedges

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 3 slices uncured bacon or turkey bacon, reserve one slice for topping

  • 14 cup Greek yogurt

  • 14 cup mayonnaise

  • 12 cup buttermilk

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 tsp onion powder

  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  • Step 2

    In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and place it on a paper towel to cool. Once cooled, crumble or chop the bacon and set it aside.

  • Step 3

    Place the cabbage wedges the pan with the bacon fat remaining a few at the time and sear until lightly browned on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, or until tender and browned.

  • Step 4

    In a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, buttermilk, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir in the 2/3 of the crumbled bacon.

  • Step 5

    Remove the cabbage wedges from the oven and place them on a serving platter. Drizzle the bacon ranch dressing over the top of the wedges. Top with extra bacon crumbles. Enjoy!
