A Little About The Recipe: Cabbage Wheels
If you are looking for a simple no-fuss side dish, this one is great. We always have a half severed cabbage wrapped with cling film somewhere in the fridge, and the cabbage lasts such a long time in the fridge we don’t have to overdose on cabbage to finish it.
Cabbage Wheels will work any colour of cabbage, so if you want to go all out, you can colour coordinate it with your main meal. The blackened bits are super tasty by the way, so don’t think the cabbage is overdone when you pull it out of the oven.
As well as Courgette Noodles/Zoodles I like Cabbage Wheels as an alternative to pasta. I use this at the base of the plate and layer a saucy meat dish on top.
On a side note, the original word for cabbage in England was ‘caboches‘, and, in Malta, the word for a cabbage is ‘kabocca’. Pretty close huh!
I Recommend This for: Cabbage Wheels
This is an easy paleo side dish. Great beneath Paleo Chicken Butter Curry or, if you are more paleo-ish, under Tuscan Chicken. Both of these recommendations are cooked on the hob, which means no oven temp clash, and, the garlic powder on the cabbage, complements the flavours in either dish.
The net carbs for this is 7.4g, and for a few different reasons, I placed this just out of the reach of keto. But, I was a little hesitant to do so, so if you feel that it is acceptable as a keto dieter, include it as you wish. For Atkins’ Maintenance, this is good to pair with Beef Stroganoff or Slow Roasted Boneless Lamb Shoulder with Dried Rosemary and Garlic – just use the juices from the lamb to make a tasty gravy.
