Roasted Cabbage with a Garlicy-Dijon Sauce

Cabbage is an underrated vegetable. It’s high in vitamin K, vitamin C and fiber. It’s also a good source of vitamin B6 and folic acid. And since it’s low in potassium, it’s great for the hubbies kidney disease. It’s so easy to make, comes together in under 30 minutes, and it super yummy! Cheers to healthy kidneys!
