They might not be glamorous, but crispy Roasted Cabbage steaks may become your new favorite side dish. When you just can’t stand the thought of another boring salad, these roasted cabbage wedges come to the rescue! They’re an easy way to add a vegetable to any meal, and they require almost no hands-on effort.

What are Roasted Cabbage Slices?

The easy side dish is exactly what it sounds like: slices of cabbage that are brushed with olive oil, seasoned and roasted in the oven. The cabbage is similar to roasted Brussels sprouts, but instead of trimming many individual little sprouts, you can just slice a single head of cabbage in minutes.

What does Roasted Cabbage taste like?

Roasting vegetables brings out their natural sweetness, and this recipe is no exception. Roasted cabbage has a mild, sweet and buttery flavor, as well as a tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture. The edges get nice and crispy and caramelized in the oven. This is a far cry from the raw, tough, shredded cabbage that you’ll find in coleslaw!

How to make Roasted Cabbage:

Definitely one of the easiest sides that you’ll ever make, this recipe comes together in three simple steps!

Ingredients:

Step 1: Slice

Slice a head of green cabbage into 1-inch thick rounds (I typically get about 6 slices from a medium head).

Step 2: Season

Place the cabbage wedges on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil and brushed with olive oil. Drizzle the cabbage with olive oil, and use your hands to gently rub it all over the surface of the rounds. Season with plenty of all-purpose seasoning (or salt and pepper).

Step 3: Roast

Roast the cabbage slices in a 400 degree F oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the cabbage is tender and the edges are golden brown. If you prefer the cabbage even darker and crispier, leave it in the oven even longer.

How to season Roasted Cabbage:

I love to use my all-purpose (“house”) seasoning for roasted vegetables. The simple blend of kosher salt, garlic, parsley, onion and basil is such a simple way to add tons of flavor to any dish. It highlights the natural flavors of the cabbage, but doesn’t overpower the vegetable.

If you prefer, you can season the cabbage with just salt and pepper, or add a dash of garlic powder. It will be delicious either way!

How to eat Roasted Cabbage:

You can serve each roasted cabbage slice as an individual steak, or you can cut individual wedges in half to serve smaller portions. Use a spatula to keep the slices intact as you carefully lift them off of the baking sheet. Feeling fancy? Separate the individual strands of cabbage and use a fork to twirl them into piles (like pasta).

What to serve with Roasted Cabbage Steaks:

The roasted cabbage steaks go well with almost any hearty dinner entree. Here are a few ideas to serve with the vegetable side dish:

Preparation and Storage Tips:

  • Make Ahead: The roasted cabbage can be prepared in advance and served at room temperature or reheated, if necessary.
  • Roasted cabbage will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
  • How to Reheat Roasted Cabbage: To reheat 1 or 2 slices, place the cabbage in a skillet over medium-low heat and warm for a few minutes on each side. To reheat larger portions, place the cabbage on a baking sheet and warm in a 350 degree F oven until heated through (about 10-15 minutes). You can also reheat the cabbage in the microwave, but it will not maintain the crispy edges.
  • You can freeze cooked cabbage in an airtight Ziploc freezer bag or other container for up to 3 months. Be aware, however, that the cabbage will have a softer, more watery texture when it’s thawed.

Recipe Variations:

  • Use the same method to roast other types of cabbage, such as red cabbage.
  • Any of your favorite herbs and seasonings will work here. I love the blend of salt and herbs in my all-purpose seasoning, but you can keep it simple with just salt and pepper. Try garlic salt and pepper, chopped fresh parsley or rosemary, or even a touch of thyme.
  • For darker, crispier cabbage (which is very flavorful!), leave the cabbage steaks in the oven for up to 1 hour.
