Roasted Red Cabbage with Bacon and Caraway


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Finely chop the bacon so it resembles mince.

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Drizzle a little oil on the tray and then add the cabbage wedges in a single layer. Drizzle over the remaining oil and dot with the butter. Sprinkle over the caraway seeds, chilli flakes, a pinch of salt and pepper and the bacon. Roast for 25 minutes until the cabbage is tender and slightly crisp on the outer leaves.
