One of the reasons I love roasted cabbage and roasting vegetables in general, is because of the caramelization that happens when the vegetables meet high temps. The simple adding of oil, salt, and pepper allows the vegetable to do its own thing, letting its flavors shine.

Cabbage is no exception.

I was surprised by how hard it was to find cabbage in the middle of winter at a decent price point. But when I found one I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.

Cabbage is one of those things that you either really like, or you rarely use. Some find it hard on their digestive system and thus avoid it. But if you’re not in that camp, you need to make it a regular part of your kitchen.

While living in China, fall was marked by trailer loads of cabbage and families taking home literal loads of cabbage. I guess each family fermented a big batch? It wasn’t Korea, so it wasn’t turned into Kimchi (which is also delicious!). We were often served cabbage soup of sorts.

My best friend lived across town and her apartment neighbors would leave the cabbage out in the stairwell. The stairwell was not heated and was very, very cold at times. But we were always questioning that cabbage and hoping that it wouldn’t end up in one of our meals.

I digress. Cabbage is versatile and usually pretty cheap. And delicious when roasted.

Is cabbage a Low Carb option?

Yes! Cabbage is awesome for a low-carb or keto lifestyle. One cup of cabbage is only 2g net carbs.

In looking at the vitamins and minerals found in cabbage, it’s absolutely packed! It has a great amount of vitamin C. It also has magnesium and potassium which are essential electrolytes that very much needed in a low carb diet! So eat your cabbage, friends.
