Oven Roasted Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

A nice roasted cabbage that becomes a warm salad when using the balsamic vinegar option. **Two cutting options provided both tend to want to separate just because it is cabbage.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425°F.
  2. Combine salt, pepper, and sugar in small bowl. Set aside.
  3. **Cutting option 1- Quarter cabbage through core and cut each quarter in to 1-inch wedges, leaving core intact. You'll have about 16 wedges.
  4. **Cutting option 2- Slice into 1-inch-thick rounds, leaving core in to help hold it together.
  5. Brush a rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  6. Arrange cabbage in single layer on baking sheet and brush with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Sprinkle with salt mixture.
  7. Roast until cabbage is tender and edges are golden, 25 to 35 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle hot cabbage with balsamic vinegar if using.

So I tried this recipe thinking I'd give cabbage another chance - and I'm glad I did! Roasting is definitely the way to go with cabbage and the balsamic makes it even better. Why don't more people know about this? I cut it in wedges but next time I think I'll cut in circles to make for a more even roasting/seasoning. Thanks for the post!

Definitely would make this again. My kind of recipe-tasty, uses oven, and simple. I did put balsamic vinegar on for sure as I have some excellent aged balsamic-we even packed in our suitcase-didn't buy wine but bought vinegar. LOL! Thanks Debbwl for sharing.

Tasted geat and was easy to throw together. I did have a little trouble with the outsides burning and the inside needing to cook longer, but sometimes I think my oven gets hotter than it should. Will be using this again! Made for ZWT 7.
