Roasted Cabbage with Lemon and Garlic

Roast Cabbage
I love roasting vegetables! It’s so easy to turn out a delicious and healthy meal by simply putting a handful of veggies into the oven. But roasting cabbage? Really?? Well, it turns out that roasting cabbage is a great way to get more of those super healthy cruciferous vegetables into your diet.

This recipe is adapted from Alyssa Brantley of Everyday Maven. The flavor reminds me of baked kale chips. I modified the original recipe by adding crushed garlic instead of just rubbing it onto the cabbage like Alyssa did. I like the garlic intensity, but if you prefer a more subtle garlic flavor, just follow Alyssa’s recipe. This dish is the perfect appetizer sprinkled with bacon salt.

Roasted Cabbage with Lemon and Garlic

  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Pull off the outer leaf of the cabbage and cut cabbage from the top to bottom into 1-inch thick slices and place on a sheet pan. Crush garlic cloves and spread over each cabbage slice. With a spray or brush, spread with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper over each, then half the lemon and sprinkle lemon juice over top.

Roast on the middle rack for 40 minutes, until edges are brown and crispy. Serve warm or at room temperature.

      Thanks Terisa! I would serve this with many different dishes like a roast chicken, baked ham, corned beef or even on it’s own with some crumbled bacon on top.

    I just tried this recipe and I have to say, it wasn’t my cup of tea. It’s a really healthy recipe though, and I will try it again with other kinds of vegetables! Thanks for the inspiration!
