Then we have Parmesan cheese which is highly recommend as it adds a really nice taste to the roasted cabbage, and one of course the cabbage which is the main ingredients, that’s it!
  • Texture, Taste & Flavor: I was surprised how tasty and flavorful this turned out to be. Cabbage are known to be something bland, but not this recipe. This dish is pact with flavor, and I especially like the addition of Parmesan cheese which gives takes the taste to the next level. That small amount of Parmesan cheese made a huge difference.

Let’s Talk About the Ingredients for Roasted Cabbage

There are 3 key ingredients for this recipe. I am grouping all the seasoning and spices in 1 group because they are all flexible and can be changed

  • Cabbage – the main key ingredient is the Cabbage. You can use any size of Cabbage but I find it easier to slice smaller Cabbage so I often go for small to medium size Cabbage
  • Parmesan Cheese – this made a huge difference, so don’t skip it. I used powdered Parmesan cheese. You can also use fresh and grate it.
  • Olive Oil and/or Butter – You can use either or use a combination of both. I’ve tried using put olive oil and the combination of both and personally like the later. As always, butter makes food taste better, but if you want to stay on the good side, then use olive oil instead
  • Seasonings and Spices – the seasonings I used are the basic salt and peppers, plus Italian seasoning which is my favorite spice blend. You can use any dried spices that you prefer. What I really like about this is the slight spiciness the peppers gave. If you are not into spicy food, decrease or replace the peppers with whatever you like. The garlic I would recommend to retain it, it gave a really nice taste. I’ve tried using powdered and fresh, and as expected the fresh gave a better taste and flavor. You can use either or a combination of both

How to Make Roasted Cabbage

Start by mixing the oil/butter mixture with the seasoning and spices.

Once done, wash the Cabbage and remove few layers of the outer Cabbage. Normally these are the wilted damage ones. Cut the cabbage into 4 rounds. Depending on the size of the Cabbage, you could have about 4 – 6 rounds. I used small Cabbage and was able to cut 4 pieces.

Spray the baking sheet with olive oil. Arrange the Cabbage in a baking sheet and brush both sides with the oil mixture. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top

Bake for 30 – 35 minutes at 350F or until the Cabbage are soft. Remove from the oven and sprinkle more garlic powder and paprika on top before serving.

Tips in Making Roasted Cabbage

  1. Be generous on the seasoning. There is nothing but seasoning that will flavor this Cabbage, so use all the oil mixture or add more as needed if you have a larger Cabbage
  2. Roast the Cabbage until really soft, it makes a huge difference.
  3. Do not skip the Parmesan cheese, this sealed the deal for this simple dish
