Dill Roasted Cabbage

Dill Roasted Cabbage | cabbage recipes | paleo recipes | Whole30 recipes | easy side dish recipes | gluten-free recipes |

I’m getting a post together about my trip and some thoughts I’ve had lately. Yes, thoughts that don’t have to do with food. I do have those occasionally. So, instead, we’re going to talk about roasted cabbage! Get excited!

Ah, cabbage. Cabbage makes me think of Russia (Borscht & cabbage rolls), tacos, and shredded BBQ sandwiches. And breakfast. I’ve told you many, many times how much I love Southwest Cabbage Slaw. We always put it on our tacos and when we have leftovers, it goes on my eggs in the morning. Not as weird as it seems. I promise.

Besides turning into slaw, cabbage (and others in the family: bok choi & Brussels sprouts) can be added to soups, hashes, stir-frys, and salads. The recipes below are my favorite uses for them. Plus I added a new one for you.

Have you ever had roasted cabbage??

*eye rolls abound on the other side of my screen*

Humor me, please?

Here’s a cheap, easy peasant-type dish with just a few ingredients. It reminds me of the Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe I posted a while back. I never thought I’d ever want to have a half a head of cabbage for lunch, but this recipe convinced me!

Using ghee makes this recipes AH-mazing. Ghee tends to be rather pricey, and luckily it’s easy to make your own! Check out my tutorial — How To Make Ghee.

Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Roasted cabbage is a quick, easy, and inexpensive side dish! The fresh dill is a perfect compliment.


  • 1 small head of cabbage, cored and sliced into 1/2-inch strips
  • 1/4 cup melted ghee
  • generous pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Place sliced cabbage in a large bowl. Drizzle with melted butter and toss to coat evenly.
  3. Arrange cabbage evenly on a large, rimmed (greased) baking sheet or roasting pan. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown in spots, tossing the cabbage with tongs once or twice during roasting.
  4. Place in a serving bowl. Mix in the fresh dill and season with salt and pepper to taste.

I bought a head of cabbage last wk to make something else. Somehow the menu got changed up, so the cabbage got pushed to the back. Cleaning out the fridge this morning, was like, ughh I forgot about you! I didn't feel like defrosting ground turkey, so there went the 'egg roll in a bowl' that I was supposed to make. Hit pinterest for some ideas and yours looked interesting. Roasted cabbage. Never had it that way. with dill. Even more interesting. But since we're under mandatory 'stay at home' due to the covid virus outbreak, a grocery trip for fresh dill was out of the question. Used dried dill instead. Paired it with some marinated chicken tenders. And it! The best parts were the crispy shreds. Definitely a keeper recipe.

I'm so glad you liked it! Cabbage is seriously underrated, IMO.

Fabulous! I never know what to do with leftover cabbage. Say, how do you post the collage of beautiful images together?

Erika - We really are soulmates.

Joanne - Thank you, dear. :)

Kristin - My husband drives the borscht train at our house, too. He'd be happy as could be if I'd make it every other week! That recipe is great, though, and I had a friend who made it in the crock pot after browning the meat.

Gwen - I love the word fantastical :)

Ann - I love all of the cabbage enthusiasm! I wondered if I would only hear the sound of crickets chirping after posting this one. Heh.

Cabbage done right is a thing of beauty - and yours is done right! I LOVE that you provided other recipes, too! I look forward to your non-food post...
