Roasted cabbage wedges are the side dish that your kids will love.

“This tastes like butter!” That’s how my 6YO describes roasted cabbage. Like all of our other favorite roasted vegetables, the edges are crispy and the middle is soft. But the full effect is so much more.

Roasted vegetables are sweet and salty, crunchy and soft. All those things in one. Roasted cabbage wedges are no different.

1 small-medium head of green cabbage

1/4 cup olive oil (or canola oil in a pinch)

1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven. Set the oven to 425 degrees F.

Cut cabbage wedges. Slice the cabbage in half lengthwise, cutting through the stem. Cut again so you have four equal pieces. Slice the core on a diagonal. Cut into 3 or 4 wedges per section, for a total of around 12-16 wedges.

Arrange on a tray. Working gingerly (so the wedges don’t fall apart), set the wedges on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Flip and repeat.

Roast. Put the pan in the oven and roast for about 20 minutes. Serve with a little extra salt on the side to suit individual tastes.

Just for Fun

We love roasted cabbage wedges so much that we wanted to make this meal even easier to get on board with. A few fun tidbits to talk about at dinner:

Fun Facts:

  • Evidence shows cabbages have been cultivated for over 4,000 years. Brussels sprouts, which are in the cabbage family, are the youngest with records dating back only 500 years.
  • Cabbage is considered the national food of Russia. Russians eat more than seven times as much cabbage as the average North American.
  • Cabbage is good for you! It’s high in dietary fiber (plus vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, potassium, manganese, vitamin A, thiamin, vitamin B6, calcium and iron), which helps keep the digestive tract and colon healthy.
