Here’s how you do it

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan.
  2. Place the cabbage wedges on a baking tray, drizzle lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and roast in the oven for 8 minutes until beginning to gain some colour. Place a pan over a medium heat and add 3 tbsp oil then gently saute the onion and garlic, with a little pinch of salt. To this you can add the finely chopped stalks of your dill or coriander. Once soft and translucent, add the cumin and coriander and stir for a few minutes.
  3. Add the tomato and pomegranate molasses and cook for 5 minutes whilst stirring. The paste should begin to darken and caramelise. Then add the stock and dried mushrooms and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add the rice and then nestle the cabbage wedges into the pan. Place the pan in the oven and roast for 20 minutes before turning the cabbage over and roasting for a further 10 minutes.
  4. Once out the oven sprinkle with dill and lemon and serve with yoghurt on the side.
