Oven Roasted Cabbage.

Oven Roasted Cabbage With Garlic, Tamari & Pancetta.


I made this for a dinner party with some girlfriends recently and it was a big hit. I think this was the most popular dish of the whole dinner, in fact! The ingredients may seem to be an odd combination at first glance, but trust me, the flavors are amazing. Give it a try!

Note: I scaled the recipe down since I made this for a larger group.

Serves 2-4.


  • 1 large head of green cabbage, sliced in ~5 large, round pieces
  • ~5 tbsp tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • ~3 tbsp garlic, chopped
  • ~1/4 cup diced pancetta
  • black pepper

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or grease with a bit of olive oil. Place the slices of cabbage onto the sheet and spread about a teaspoon of chopped garlic on to of each slice of cabbage, using the back of a spoon to press the garlic into the cabbage. Then add a large spoonful of pancetta and a splash of tamari on top of each slice. Season with black pepper and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes.
