  5. Then quickly place the florets cut side down in the pan.
  6. Fry for about 5 minutes and then turn them over, cover with a lid and let them cook.
  7. As soon as the cabbage is soft, mix it thoroughly, salt and pepper it.
  8. It is important not to move the cabbage while roasting and wait until they are soft. The result will be golden-fried cabbage on one side, soft and juicy.

Let’s roast the cabbage

Cabbage is one of the vegetables that can be used in many ways. Steamed and seasoned cabbage can be served as a side dish or made into soup.

Prepared cabbage is also good when fried. However, if we want to have a meal to which we can add various other ingredients, we choose one of the recipes for baked cabbage.

Cabbage and its preparation

We always buy cabbage in good quality, that is, withered, with green upper leaves and without damage. Nevertheless, sometimes we cannot avoid the need to remove the upper leaves. Therefore, we always inspect the cabbage carefully and remove the damaged parts.

Then, if necessary, we separate it into leaves, cut it into halves or quarters, or leave the smaller cabbage whole.

Before baking, the cabbage must be boiled at least until semi-soft in salted water. We do not cover it during cooking, so that the aromatic substances have a chance to escape. Drain the cooked cabbage and adjust it according to the selected recipe along with other ingredients and spices.
