Air-Fryer Cabbage

Cabbage gets nice and crispy in this simple air-fryer cabbage recipe. The crumble of Parmesan and spices gets into the grooves of the cabbage, adding flavor throughout.

  • 1 small head red or green cabbage (about 2 pounds)

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat air fryer to 350°F for 5 minutes. Cut cabbage into 8 (2-inch) wedges, keeping core intact. Brush the wedges with oil on both sides. Mix Parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper together in a small bowl. Spoon the mixture onto 1 side of each cabbage wedge, coaxing the mixture into the grooves to help it adhere. Working in batches if necessary, arrange the wedges in the fryer basket in a single layer, Parmesan-sides up. Cook until slightly browned on the outside and tender in the middle, about 25 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
