Roasted Cabbage Wedges

>> Monday, March 4, 2013

Here's a great idea for a side veggie dish, right from the kitchens of Martha Stewart!  I have cut back the oil in this recipe -  Martha's 3 tablespoons isn't necessary.  In fact, many recipes out there call for much more oil than is actually needed to give flavor and texture.  Olive oil contains healthy fats, yes - but remember that one tablespoon of any kind of oil contains about 135 calories.  Thus, for a typical middle aged woman who doesn't exercise and is trying to lose weight, who needs to limit intake to about 1200 calories per day in order to lose about a pound a week, one tablespoon of oil is more than 10% of the day's calorie total - and you haven't eaten anything yet. (You can calculate your calorie requirements to maintain or lose weight in the right hand column here).


  • 1 medium head of green cabbage, cut into 1 inch thick rounds
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste (minimum salt if you have high blood pressure)
  • 1 tsp caraway or fennel seeds


Preheat oven to 400F.  Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with non stick spray.  Place cabbage round slices in a single layer on the sheet, and brush with 2 teaspoons of olive oil.  Season with caraway or fennel seeds and pepper/salt.  Roast until cabbage is tender and edges are golden, about 40-45 minutes. 

Makes 5 servings.
