Cabbage is a beautiful winter vegetable that is most commonly served raw, but is delicious roasted as well. Whether serving the family a quick weeknight dinner, or looking for something more fancy for guests, roasted cabbage steaks are unexpectedly delicious dinner side dish.
The cabbage slices hold together well while you slice them, which make the prep super easy and fast. Roasting cabbage brings out the sweetness of this frugal winter vegetable, and goes with any protein. These cabbage steaks are also delicious cold leftover the next day.
Roasting cabbage isn’t fussy, go ahead and add it to whatever temperature your oven is already at. This cabbage shown was cooked alongside our Paleo Stuffed Beef Pinwheels at 375*.
