Recipe No.1: Roasted Cabbage with Black Vinegar
Now you can go ahead and cut up a head of cabbage, drizzle it with olive oil and salt and throw it into a 400 degree oven until it is brown and crispy on the edges, side it into a bowl and drizzle a couple of tablespoons of chili oil over the cabbage. This will be divine! But if you would like to add in even a bit more salty rich goodness try this combination:
1/4 Cup black (or rice) vinegar (black vinegar is just a little bit richer)
2 Tbl. Tamari
2 Tbl. Guajillo Chili Oil
1 Tbl. Smokey Coffee Chili Oil
1 tsp. fish sauce (optional)
1 head cabbage
Turn your oven on to 400 degrees.
Chop your cabbage up into halves, then quarters, and then eighths. Lay out on a baking sheet.
Dice your shallot and mix with vinegar, tamari, and chili oil.
Pour the sauce over the cabbage and toss.
Roast in oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the edges of your cabbage are crispy. You may want to toss the cabbage once during cooking.
