  1. My favourite way to eat cabbage is to bake them into cabbage chips. SO GOOD!
    1. Chip them into chunks/wedges.
    2. Separate and lay them on a baking sheet.
    3. Drizzle with some olive oil, sea/kosher salt and black pepper (garlic powder and cayenne pepper if you’re feeling fancy).
    4. Toss them around with your hands and re-lay them flat on the sheet.
    5. Bake them at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until most get brown and crunchy at the edges. Toss once in between the baking time.
    6. Serve as an evening snack or side dish.
    Enjoy!
