  • ½ medium green cabbage (1-1½ pounds), outer leaves removed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons white balsamic or white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. To prepare cabbage: Cut cabbage half into four wedges and cut out any thick core, leaving the wedges as intact as possible. Drizzle the cut sides with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Place the wedges flat-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Roast the cabbage for 12 minutes. Carefully flip over (it's OK if it falls apart a little) and roast until browned on both sides, about 8 minutes more.
  4. To prepare vinaigrette: Combine mustard, vinegar, lemon juice, pepper and ⅛ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add chives and oil; stir until well combined.
  5. Transfer the cabbage to a serving plate (or plates) and drizzle with the vinaigrette while still hot. Serve hot or room temperature.
  • Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

It is always difficult for me to add cabbage to our daily menu. I know about all the benefits of it for our health. Only used to make cole slaw or oriental, which it's ok, but I found this recipe, I made it and now I love it! While reading the ingredients it sounds like it is a kind of acid, but I was wrong, it has a light tangy/sweet flavor. The cabbage 'melts' in your mouth. I'm making it at least once per week from now on! Perfect For a bbq as well! Thanks for posting this recipe. I cooked it a little longer than recommended, about ten more minutes.

I've made it twice with variations and I LOVE roasted cabbage with mustard sauce. First time I roasted the cabbage as suggested but we weren't ready to eat so I put the cabbage in a casserole dish, smothered on the sauce and continue to bake the cabbage with the drizzled sauce. So good! Second time I just went straight to baking in a casserole with some cauliflower thrown in just for fun... equally as tasty! Love this recipe. ?

Tasty and Easy I made this recipe according to directions, cooking it an extra 2 min. on the second side. Next time I will make all the wedges smaller (about 1 across the back). I liked the cabbage even without the vinaigrette. Will definitely make again. Pros: Easy to make; tasty and healty

Tender, Tangy & Delicious I loved this recipe! I've only had cabbage in stir fries or soups so this was a great way to try it in a new style. The vinaigrette really makes the dish, with the cabbage being an easy and buttery vehicle. The smokiness you get from roasting the cabbage is wonderful. I have a gas oven and it seemed to do a great job of browning the vegetable. I did cut the cabbage into smaller pieces, like others, because it would have been too much otherwise. Pros: No mess, easy to make Cons: NULL

good, but needs to cook longer Pretty good. Mine didn't brown quite as much as in the photo. I might put the pan in the oven for 1 or 2 minutes to get hot before adding the cabbage; that might help it brown. I would roast it about 10 minutes longer than the recipe said.
