This is a wonderful, healthy side dish to go along-side any entree. Parmesan Roasted Cabbage with Pine Nuts is seasoned simply with salt, pepper, and parmesan.
Ten years ago if you had told me that I’d eat and enjoy roasted cabbage, or any vegetable, actually, I would have told you that you were insane. Now, not only do I like roasted cabbage. I love roasted Brussel sprouts, broccoli, carrots. Any vegetable is divine roasted.
Roasting brings out natural sugars while retaining nutrients in vegetables. It is one of the healthiest cooking methods since it uses heat to soften vegetables. Roasting doesn’t require adding butter or oil which can add significant amounts of fat and calories.

As well roasting vegetables is better than other methods of cooking. Boiling vegetables causes a greater nutrient loss than roasting. Cooking vegetables in water robs them of some of their nutritional value because the nutrients leach out into the cooking water. Additionally, stir-frying and microwaving causes significant losses of chlorophyll and vitamin C and significant decreases of total soluble proteins.
I enjoy this recipe as prepared. If you would enjoy a sauce on it, try the peanut sauce I used with my Baked Breaded Cauliflower recipe or the almond butter sauce I provided with my Skinny Baked Breaded Cauliflower recipe.

Additionally, cabbage is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. It is also a very good source of manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin B1, folate, and copper. Cabbage is also a good source of choline, phosphorus, vitamin B2, magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, pantothenic acid, protein, and niacin. If that weren’t enough, cabbage is one of two vegetable types (the other type was root vegetables) found to be a mainstay for the prevention of type 2 diabetes. All good reasons to add cabbage in your regular diet!

Could this be made with red cabbage?
Yes, it can.
I’m limited on my sodium.. How would ibrepair to lower the sodium content ??
just season with pepper and maybe garlic and no Parmesan
This sounds amazing! What would be another great substitute for pine nuts? Or would it be ok to omit?
I would just omit them.
Do you need to use any oil on the cabbage or the pan?
I made it exactly as the recipe is written,but you can add oil. It’ll give it a little more flavor too
This sounds yummy! Thank you for allowing us to try it. I’m always looking for ways to incorporate more cabbage into my diet (beyond my love for Brussels Sprouts that is), and this looks quick and easy (which is very helpful to me!). Do you slice the 1″ slices from side to side on the cabbage or start from the bottom of the cabbage and slice to the top?
I cut the core off so that the cabbage would sit on the core end without rolling and sliced top to bottom (top to core)
How would this be grilled? I bet if you adjust the heat and flame position it would turn out ok.
Yes, we grill it but my husband is the griller so I don’t know details. I know he kept testing until it was fork tender

The Strawberry cake recipe caught my eye, I used to make an angel food strawberry cake for my oldest son’s birthday, (he was allergic to chocolate). While I peruse the ingredients for the cake, the screen on the right pops on Chocolate gravy! The only other person I know that made this was my Aunt, her grandkids adored it. I was a little bit skeptical of the taste, sadly I only had it one time. Well you really got my memories going. 🙂
In May, my three nieces and their families are coming to California to stay with me, I haven’t cooked for fifteen people in a long time; and your recipes look yummy but not too difficult to follow. Egg and potato casserole, Pecan pie, roasted veggies,
Since I do like cabbage, I will not wait for them to get here to try it-love parm and pine nuts-sounds like a winner to me.
Thank you for sharing,
I’m so happy you like my site! Please let me know how the visit goes and if they like the chocolate gravy!

How does the cheese and nuts not burn?
Doesn’t add up.
Going to try it, but adding the toppings half way thru.
Do any of your recipes have the WW Freestyle Point values attached/included? This roasted cabbage recipe sounds great!
Not yet, I’ve been searching for a reliable nutrition calculator for my recipes but haven’t found the ideal one yet
An unusual recipe? Does the cabbage turn out to be crunchy, or quite soft? Can you add other spices to this recipe? I just love chili, and if my way, I would add chilli in all dishes.
You can add any spices that you prefer. It’s soft with caramelized areas that touch the pan.

That looks yummy! I love roasted vegetables but I’m not a big fan of cabbage; I bet this gives it lots of flavor. Pinned.
I wasn’t either, but I’m crazy about it this way. Hope you enjoy!

What about the pine nuts?? 🙂
Ack!! Thanks Corrected
Linda Reed says
The title of recipe says with pine nuts. Yet no where in the recipe does it mention line nuts or how much to use.
it’s corrected now, sorry about that
