Spicy Oven-Charred Cabbage And Lemons

To my knowledge, this is an original recipe born out of a “what shall we eat for dinner tonight?” situation. I didn’t have many ingredients in the fridge and, as I recall, they all ended up in the recipe. Don’t be misled by this dish’s origin story. It is so good. The lemon gets a bit charred and chewy, the cabbage is nutty and coated in spicy, garnet-coloured harissa, and the herbs and crispy pita add the perfect amount of aromatic crunch to cut through the heat. —Christine Flynn
