Roasted Garlic-Parmesan Cabbage 

Last updated: October 3, 2022

Cabbage is an often-overlooked nutrition powerhouse coming from the same plant family as broccoli, kale and cauliflower. Cruciferous vegetables contain antioxidants that are known to help reduce chronic inflammation. Our cool Wisconsin climate is perfect for growing this vegetable, and we find it growing locally in our farmers’ fields.

  • ½ large head red or green cabbage 
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish 
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, finely minced or grated

  4. Arrange the cabbage wedges cut side down on a large rimmed baking sheet. 
  5. Brush all sides of the cabbage with the garlic mixture.
