Growing up we used grew cabbage in our vegetable garden and ate it all summer long. Grilled, in soup, roasted and even sautéed. Sadly, cabbage has a pretty bad rap – It causes too much gas, it smells the house up…

Um.

You get the point.

Here is the thing. This stuff is amazing. Don’t give up on this vegetable. The best part is that it’s cheap.

Listen, I’m all for the more expensive vegetables. My top two favorites are Brussels sprouts and asparagus. However, sometimes I don’t feel like paying $4.99, or more, a pound for my vegetables. I know, I’m cheap.

This cabbage dish is simple and would make a lovely addition to your Thanksgiving spread. It’s simply drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Sometimes simple is delicious.

    I never seen cabbage prepared this way before! But given how much I adore every other roasted veggie…I’m thinking I’d love this!

    I love cabbage (partly due to my Polish heritage). I always buy it to make in a recipe but usually end up just eating it sautéed or roasted. So simple and so delicious, love to see another cabbage lover out there!

    My favorite way to make any veggie lately is to roast them. That said, I’ve never roasted cabbage but I do love it. I will definitely be making roasted cabbage soon Brandy. Thanks for the suggestion!!!

    My daughter came and visited while my husband was in the hospital she helped me with the shopping along with cooking. We had a wonderful time where she showed her ol’ momma a thing or two about cooking. This was one of the dishes she said we had to try and make. We fell in love with it. It was wonderful. Just plan great. Simple, easy, tastes great. So now I make ourselves roasted dinner nights, sliced sweet potatoes, cabbage sliced, sliced cauliflower, or nice new potatoes and serve it with a roasted meat. The meat comes out and rests while we slide a pan of vegetables in to roast. Simple easy, fresh cooking Yup that works.
