Baked Cabbage with Mustard Sauce

My sister gave me two small cabbages from her garden.  Yes, it is still producing!  She is having beets for supper tonight!  The cabbage was quartered, baked in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper and nutmeg – with just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan to steam them.  The mustard sauce was made with horse radish and wholegrain dijon mustard – what a delight!  Even if you’re not a cabbage lover you may be after eating these tasty quarters!

Baked Cabbage with Mustard Sauce

  • 2 very small heads of cabbage, quartered, cored
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Maille Wholegrain Dijon Mustard
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish

Cut cabbages into quarters and carefully remove the core from each piece.  Place in a large baking dish.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Add enough water to cover the bottom of the dish.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a 425 degree oven for 45 minutes.  When the cabbages are done, melt the butter in a medium skillet.  Add onion and cook until tender.  Stir in flour, and a bit of salt and pepper.  Add milk and 1/2 cup water.  Cook and stir until thick and bubbly.  Stir in mustard and horseradish.  Spoon over cabbage.  Enjoy!
