Cabbages are winter vegetables par excellence ! There are many variations how to prepare cabbages but one of my favorite ways is definitively roasted in the oven. It give the cabbages a sweet and nutty touch with additional roasted flavors.

Ingredients list

For the recipe, you only need a fee ingredients.

  • White cabbage: I used a whole white cabbage. This recipes works very good with other cabbages as well such as red cabbage, pointed cabbage also know as hispi cabbage or green cabbage.
  • Olive oil: I love to cook with olive oil! I use it to marinate my cabbage before roasting it in the oven.
  • Spices: I used the following spices to season by cabbage: sweet paprika, cumin, Espelette pepper (you can use red pepper flakes) salt and black pepper. You can be creative with the spices and add you favorite spice.
  • Garlic: I like to add a garlic note to my roasted vegetables and it wokrs great with cabbage as well. I used garlic flakes but you can use a fresh garlic clove instead.
  • Tahini: Tahini is a sesame paste typical from the Middle East cuisine. It goes very well with roasted vegetables.
  • Lemon: I like to balance the tahini dressing with a little bit of lemon juice to add some freshness to it.
