'Tis the season to roast every damn vegetable we can get our hands on. Of course we're going for squash, pumpkins, and tubers, but we won't stop there. Oh no, we'll roast everything. We're going down a roasting rabbit hole so deep, we've already forgotten what raw produce looks like.

The surprising hero of this oven-abusing bender is an unassuming head of green cabbage. Cut into wedges, oiled up, and cooked hot and fast, this dish puts slaw to shame.

RECIPE: Grilled Cabbage Wedges

To top it off, whip up a quick dressing with some herbs and tahini, sprinkle on some flaky sea salt and some parsley leaves, and it's good to go. A spread of charred cabbage wedges make for one hell of a side dish—dare we say it, they'd even work as a pretty stunning meatless centerpiece.

Fuck outta here, coleslaw. Time to bump the heat and get weird with your cabbage.
