Orange Caraway Cabbage Wedges
Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 1 hour Servings: 8
1 teaspoon caraway seeds, crushed
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3/8 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 ( 3 pound ) head green cabbage
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine caraway, rind, pepper, 1/8 teaspoon salt, turmeric, and butter in a small bowl. Chill 5 minutes or until slightly firm.

Heat a large skillet over medium. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add cabbage wedges to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned.
Arrange cabbage wedges, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Spread half of butter mixture evenly over cut sides of cabbage. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. Remove pan from oven; spread remaining half of butter mixture over wedges. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and dill. Serve immediately.
