Roasted Cabbage ingredients
- 1 whole green cabbage
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1-2 tablespoons sunflower seeds (for garnish)
Cabbage marinade ingredients
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 and 1/2 limes, juiced
- 1 large or 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions for your lovely cabbage:
- Preheat your oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Cut the cabbage into small quarters, making sure not to make the slices too thin or too thick. Place them on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil (the better the olive oil, the better the taste!), and season with salt and pepper.
- Roast the cabbage for 20 minutes on one side. Check on it and if it’s not starting to turn brown, leave it in the oven for another 10 minutes. Then, flip the cabbage over and roast for another 20 minutes on the other side. You’ll know it’s ready when it’s tender and crispy on the outside.
While your cabbage is roasting:
- Prepare the marinade by combining the olive oil, lime juice, sliced shallots, chopped parsley, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
- Once the cabbage is done roasting, it’s time to assemble the dish. On a serving plate, spread a tablespoon of tahini in the middle of the plate, and use the back of a spoon to spread it in a circle.
- Arrange 1-2 slices of the roasted cabbage on top of the tahini dressing and spoon some of the marinade over the top.
- Finally, sprinkle some sunflower seeds over the dish for a little extra crunch and flavor. You can also add some more tahini on top if you like.
- Enjoy your delicious and healthy roasted cabbage with tahini dressing!
Tips and Tricks to make your Roasted Cabbage splendid

- Don’t be afraid to get creative with the marinade! You can try adding some lemon zest, garlic, or even a pinch of cinnamon to give it a unique twist.
