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 the naturals 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 Parmesan Roasted Cabbage with Pine Nuts 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 prevention of type 2 diabetes. All good reasons to add cabbage in your regular diet!
