This is a great, easy side dish to just about anything...chicken, pork, etc. The roasting carmelizes the sugar in the cabbage and develops a rich deep flavor. Adapted from 'The Everything Cooking for Two Cookbook'.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet on low; add the garlic cloves and cook very gently for 15 minutes. Discard the garlic and toss the cabbage with the oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat your oven to 450°.
  3. Place the cabbage on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until the tops of the cabbage pieces are browned.
  4. Serve hot.

Another excellent vegetable to roast. Don't be afraid to let it brown a little. It adds flavor. Just keep an eye on it as it will shrivel to nothing quickly. I used 1/2 olive oil, 1/2 vegetable oi and will probably cut the recommended amount in 1/2 next time. Asparagus, cauliflower and brussels sprouts are also exellent prepared this way.

I chopped the cabbage into pieces as if it were going to be in a salad and mixed it with the ingredients (including the garlic) specified in the recipe, but lowered the temperature to 400 degrees. It cooked in an oven-proof skillet and was delicious as well as easy to serve because it was pre-cut.
