Balsamic Roasted Cabbage

recipe from Eating Well


  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 large head red or green cabbage, cut into 10 or 12 wedges
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Combine pepper, 3 tablespoons oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Brush evenly over all sides of cabbage wedges.
  2. Combine honey, 2 tablespoons vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. Arrange the cabbage wedges, cut-side down, on a baking sheet. Roast until they start to brown, about 20 minutes. Brush with half the honey-balsamic mixture; turn over and brush with the remaining mixture. Continue roasting until browned and tender, but still holding their shape, about 15 minutes more.
  4. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar and sprinkle with thyme, if desired. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Makes 6 servings.
