Easy Roasted Cabbage Recipe

Why It Works

  • Roasting at very high heat helps bring out the cabbage's sweet, nutty flavors.
  • Cutting the cabbage into fat wedges creates maximum textural contrast between the lightly charred exterior and tender interior.

When roasting cabbage, you want the same sweet nuttiness from caramelization and browning that you achieve with roasted broccoli. But because cabbage, like cauliflower, is much denser than broccoli, it helps to treat it a little differently, cutting it into fat slices for maximum textural contrast.
