Osteria Mozza – Roasted Cabbage with Toasted Caraway Vinaigrette


“I often talk about underused, under appreciated vegetables, and how happy I am when I see one resurrected. As I write this, the vegetable having its “15 minutes” is cabbage. It may be old news by the time you’re reading this, but right now, cabbage – cooked cabbage  is all the rage. Caramelized, like we prepare it, it is sweet, tender and so flavorful. I have to admit, as much as I have always loved raw cabbage in various renditions of coleslaw, it wasn’t until the current cabbage renaissance that I really embraced it cooked.” – Nancy Silverton. Chef & Co-owner, Osteria Mozza.



This recipe gives back to the Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC).
Local restaurant and bar owners around the country formed the Independent Restaurant Coalition (IRC) to save the small restaurants and bars affected by COVID-19 and the subsequent economic shutdown. The IRC was founded on the simple belief that our small businesses have the power to affect legislative change if we unite our voices.
