I thought I had it pretty well covered with the corned beef recipes and cabbage recipes for St. Patrick’s Day! After all, I’ve already shared The BEST Low-Carb Corned Beef Recipes (which includes my Pressure Cooker Corned Beef and my Slow Cooker Corned Beef as well as lots of ideas for leftover corned beef.) And then last week I updated my collection of Kalyn’s Top Ten Low-Carb Recipes with Cabbage so you’d have plenty of options while cabbage is so inexpensive. And of course this Low-Carb Roasted Cabbage with Lemon is one that’s on my top ten list.

But then last week I cooked some corned beef and made this amazing Low-carb Roasted Cabbage with Lemon to serve with it, and I decided I had to take new photos and feature this favorite recipe to see if I can encourage some of you cabbage-avoiders to try it. Of course I’m a cabbage lover, but this roasted cabbage with lemon and olive oil brushed on before it roasts is so amazingly delicious that I think most anyone who likes roasted veggies would love it. And if you forced me to choose my very favorite cabbage recipe, I think this would have to be it.

There is also one slight improvement to the recipe! On the advice e-mailed to me by a reader whose name I can no longer remember, I now keep the strip of core on each piece of cabbage, which makes turning it much easier. You can cut that away when you eat the wedge of cabbage, or if your cabbage is small and young the core might taste fine.

So if you’re cooking corned beef and cabbage this weekend I strongly encourage you to cook the cabbage using this method! And think about this tasty low-carb roasted cabbage with lemon any time you need an easy low-carb side dish to go with any kind of meat.

How to Make Low-Carb Roasted Cabbage with Lemon:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)

  1. Start preheating oven, then cut one head of cabbage into 8 wedges, cutting through the core. (I used to trim the core but a reader shared that if you leave it on the wedges stay together better, and you can easily cut it off as you eat it.)
  2. Arrange cabbage pieces on a large baking sheet that you’ve sprayed with olive oil or non-stick spray. 
  3. Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice.
  4. Use a pastry brush to brush the top sides of the cabbage with the olive oil/lemon juice mixture and season generously with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Turn carefully and repeat with the second side.
  5. Roast cabbage 15 minutes, or until the side touching the pan is nicely browned, then turn each piece carefully.
  6. Then roast the cabbage 10-15 minutes more on the second side, or until it’s done to your liking.
  7. Serve the cabbage hot, with extra lemon slices for people to squeeze on a bit more lemon juice if they’d like.

  5. This looks fantastic! I can’t wait to try it.

  6. Not sure what I did wrong, but it was a waste of a head of cabbage. The pieces turned out either burnt or not cooked and the burnt parts were the consistency of plastic, so ended up throwing the whole thing in the trash.

    • Sorry it didn’t work for you. Don’t know what you did wrong either, because I have made this at least 25 times, and as you can see from the comments above this recipe has a lot of fans. Have you ever had your oven temperature checked?

  7. loved this, just made it with our corned beef, brings out the sweetness of the cabbage
    thanks
