  • 2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for brushing
  • 1kg red cabbage (1 small), sliced into 1-2cm thick wedges
  • ¾ tsp cumin seeds
  • 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 handful coriander, chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C, gas mark 7. Brush a baking sheet with a little olive oil. Space the cabbage wedges out on top and brush the surfaces with the remaining olive oil. Season and roast for 35-40 minutes, until soft and starting to brown at the edges.

  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Toast the cumin seeds in a dry pan for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant, then crush. In a small food processor, combine the extra virgin olive oil with the cumin and remaining ingredients. Whizz until the herbs are finely chopped in the style of a rustic pesto; season.

  3. Spoon the dressing over the hot cabbage wedges to serve. Enjoy with griddled halloumi or baked salmon and salad leaves, garnished with extra coriander, if liked.
