Roasted Cabbage

I’ve been known to put more time and effort into the main dish then when it comes to sides I usually just steam a veggie or something. Sides like this roasted cabbage are so easy though that it’s nearly just as simply as steaming or sauteing veggies.

I love roasting vegetables because it really just brings out their natural sweetness and offers a depth of flavor that steaming or sauteing can’t. Really this is more of a method than a recipe but I thought I’d share in case you haven’t tried it yet.

Tip When Slicing Cabbage

This time around I started cutting the cabbage from side to side without realizing what I was doing, what you’ll want to do is cut it from top to bottom so the cabbage holds together a little better when you go to flip it, you may see one of mine fell apart and I tried to puzzle piece it back together. We learn from our mistakes, right?

With cabbage this good you may even forget about the main dish and you’ll be reaching for another one of these, I can’t get enough of it! It’s so easy yet so delicious!

Such a flavorful easy way to cook fresh cabbage! Cabbage is cut into slices, drizzled with olive oil, rubbed with fresh garlic and roasted to golden brown deliciousness.

Servings: 5
Prep Time 10 minutes

  • 1 large head green cabbage, sliced into wedges vertically from head of cabbage about 3/4 to 1-inch thick
  • 3 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp dried marjoram
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Minced fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.

  2. Pour olive oil into a small bowl then press garlic through a garlic crusher into bowl (or mince), stir well to infuse garlic flavor then pour and press mixture through a fine mesh strainer into another bowl to remove garlic pieces*.

  3. Stir marjoram into oil mixture.

  4. Lay cabbage wedges on prepared baking sheet and brush both slides with olive oil mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Recipe Notes

  • *I like to do this just so they don't burn while roasting at high heat for so long. Use a rubber spatula to press garlic against strainer to extract juices.
  • **If you don't want the slightly charred edges you can cover with foil during last 10 minutes.
  • Nutrition estimate does not include bacon.

    15 minutes is not even close for a cooking time on a 3/4 or 1″ slice. This recipe is full of holes.

  • Amanda

    This is such a great way to make cabbage! I made this exactly the way the recipe says except I only had to cook it for 15 min, then turn the oven off and keep warm for a few min. No garnishes were needed at all. My husband loved this and I will definitely make this recipe again.

  • Clara

    Great recipe. I did have to leave them in the oven for a lot longer than 30 minutes total though. I would say it took more like 45 minutes for them to get to a doneness that I liked. Super easy, really yummy! Thank you!

    We love cabbage steamed. Sauteed in olive oil. Can’t wait to try it roasted. Great idea for us cabbage lovers.

  • Lizbet

    These look delicious, Jaclyn. I frequently roast vegetables with just olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Sometimes I add a little Italian seasoning. I had never thought of roasting cabbage, but I bet I will after seeing this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  • William Graham

    They look more like slices, please clarify, if wedges I think should look triangular?

    Nut anyhow, looks delicious!

      Yes they are slices and I actually thought that exact same thing but I noticed most people referred to them as wedges so IDK :).

  • Shawn @ I Wash You Dry

    This is probably going to replace a wedge salad for me! I get bored with sides too, totally get it. This looks delicious though, can’t wait to try it for a Sunday dinner!
