Roasted Cabbage with bacon and parmesan

Have you ever tried roasted cabbage? I think it’s my new favorite vegetable to roast. It’s something you wouldn’t think would roast very well, but it’s quite the opposite.

I cut my slices a little too thin, they really shrink down to nothing in the oven. But I actually loved those crispy edges the best. I made this on an afternoon when I was the only one at home. I was hoping to save it for dinner later that night, but I ended up eating it all. Whaaa?! I know…it was that good. So I had to make it again. :)

Here’s the recipe:

Roasted Cabbage with bacon and parmesan

– one head of green cabbage
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– kosher salt & fresh cracked pepper
– season salt (like lowrys – or bon appetite)
– cooked bacon crumbles and shaved parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice the cabbage into thick one inch + round slices. Cover your baking pan with tin foil for easy cleanup. Rub olive oil on both sides of the cabbage slices and sprinkle with a good dose of salt, pepper and seasonings. Roast for 45 minutes until the edges are crispy. Top with bacon and parmesan cheese while still warm.

    This is so Ironic….I just made roasted cauliflower and LOVED it….it basically was the same without the bacon and was suppose to have lemon juice, but I didn’t have any, so I don’t know how that would have been. I am definately going to try cabbage now! Thanks for the recipe!!

    I love this. So healthy if you just sprinkle lightly with the bacon and parmesan. I think I need to try this one today if I can make it to the grocery store!!

    I do almost the same thing with Brussel sprouts, but I add lemon juice. It’s soooo delicious and the only way my hubby actually eats Brussel sprouts! Excited to try cabbage too!

    Have you tried sauteing cabbage? Tried this one time and it was awesome! Basically the same steps as you did for roasting but stirring it in a wok or a large frying pan. Cut the cabbage a little finer and into smaller pieces. Put in the pan with the oil and the seasonings and stir fry it. Fabulous! That night we ate the cabbage with baked potatoes. It was Baked Potato night and you wouldn’t think that this would be good – I mean we had cheese sauce on the potatoes – but it was.
