Absolutely the best way to cook cabbage that I have ever tried! I love roasted veggies and decided the other night to try roasting the cabbage that I had on hand-I'd been planning on sauteing it as usual, but once this idea took hold, I had to try it! It was sooooo good! Hubby loved it and my daugter, who's not usually a big fan ate several helpings!


head of cabbage, cut into wedges
1-2 Tbsp
olive oil or grapeseed oil
coarse ground salt and pepper
1/4-1/2 c
shredded cheese of your choice(optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 425F. Brush the cabbage wedges on all sides with the oil and place on a baking tray. Roast for 15-20 min., until starting to brown. Flip the wedges over and roast an additional 15-20 min. until edges are well browned and cabbage starts to look carmelized. If using cheese, remove cabbage from oven about 2 min. before cooking time is up. Sprinkle the cheese on and return to oven for the 2 min. to melt the cheese.

I think you have this comment on the wrong recipe...but yes, I think it would be good on shrimp, too! Probably non-seafood meats also, like maybe pork medallions.

I'm not too fond of scallops so don't you think this would be fine to substitute shrimp? I will try it with scallops though since my husband does like them!

Glad you like it! It's amazing how sweet it is when it's roasted as compared to steamed or sauteed!

I roasted cabbage this evening, and both my husband and I loved it. We changed the recipe slightly, by mixing together 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp sugar & about 1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper. Drizzle or brush the wedges with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle each wedge with the salt/sugar mixture first on one side then the other. Bake at 425-450 degrees for about 20 minutes (depending on the size of wedges). Once tender and you see carmalization, remove from oven. Then finally drizzle balsamic vinegar on each wedge. Enjoy. My husband said this is now his favorite way to enjoy cabbage and I agree.

I made this again tonight and this time I added a light sprinkling of shredded cheese the last couple of minutes of cooking time. A great addidtion...really good!(But then, is there anything that isn't made better with cheese?!?) I'll update the recipe to reflect this as an option.
