This vivid green cabbage is in season over the festive period and it's deliciously nutty flavour makes it a definite crowd-pleaser. Paired with the crunch of toasted walnuts and a velvety blue cheese dressing, this dish is sure to pack a punch. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Arrange the cabbage wedges on a baking tray. Lightly brush with the olive oil; season well. Roast for 25 minutes, or until the leaves are tender and crisp at the edges.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Using a food processor or stick blender, whizz the cheese, vinegar, walnut oil, soured cream and mustard until combined and runny. Pour into a small jug and set aside until needed.
  3. Arrange the cabbage wedges on a serving plate and drizzle over the dressing. Scatter over the chopped walnuts to serve.
