Roasted Cabbage Wedges with Smoked Paprika

by Erin

Instead of slow cooking the cabbage with your corned beef, try roasting it in the oven with a sprinkle of smoked paprika!

Roasted Cabbage Wedges with Smoked Paprika 1

This recipe doesn’t vary too greatly compared to the roasted cabbage I shared last year, but slight differences still count as new recipes! Instead of lemon juice, these are sprinkled with smoked paprika which creates a great color.

Two years in a row I have had roasted cabbage instead of cooking it along with the corned beef in the slow cooker, and I prefer it. It retains much more crunch this way and honestly, I had a hard time fitting everything into the slow cooker when the cabbage was also in there. Problem solved! But do not be mistaken, I am still not any closer to liking stuffed cabbage (in case you are reading this, dad).

In other news, I finally started to read The Hunger Games Monday night. And I finished it last night. Peeta’s character is what got me sucked into it. Now I am ready to see it on the silver-screen!

Serves 8


1 head green cabbage

2 Tbsp olive oil

Salt and pepper

Smoked paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. Cut cabbage into 8 wedges.  Arrange the wedges in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Using a pastry brush, coat the top sides of each cabbage wedge with the olive oil, then season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Turn cabbage wedges and repeat on second side.
  4. Roast cabbage for about 10 minutes, or until edges and bottoms are browned. Flip over each wedge and roast 10 minutes more. Serve immediately, and garnish with lemon if desired.

[…] This was a great change from the my traditional way of cooking the cabbage in the crock pot along with corned beef and other vegetables. Crispy and lemony fresh, it adds great texture to any meal. Plus it made my life a little easier, because I typically have a had time fitting everything into my crock pot! You could also try smoked paprika roasted cabbage. […]

I’m historically a cabbage hater but maybe I should try roasting it! Last week I grilled Brussels sprouts and loved it!

If you like brussels you should like roasted cabbage! It’s like their big brother.

I’ve never heard of roasting cabbage before but its a brilliant idea! I actually have some in the fridge that I figured would be trash but not any longer! I just have to try this! Great recipe!

The paprika sounds like a delicious addition! And it is roasted, so that always adds so much flavor!

Nice recipe! Great use of cabbage. Normally I just shred it and put it in a salad, but I never thought of roasting it. Awesome! I’m going to try that, next time I have the urge for cabbage.

Oh, I adore smoked paprika. Its one of my new favorite spices and adds something new to the same old, same old. I have never roasted cabbage, but have roasted brussels sprouts and I imagine they are very similar in taste. I’ll have to give this a try.
So, are you totally hooked on the Hunger Games? I am beyond obsessed. I cannot wait to see the movie this weekend!!

I am totally jumping on the Hunger Games bandwagon. I feel so bad for Peeta, I want him to prevail in what I expect to become a love triangle.

Deborah March 21, 2012 - 3:01 pm

I don’t think I’ve ever even thought to roast cabbage! I don’t know why, because I love roasted vegetables! Definitely need to try this.

Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray March 21, 2012 - 1:22 pm

Ooh, I think I’d like this better than the boiled-to-death cabbage I usually have! And also, um, I cannot wait to see The Hunger Games movie. Whyyyy didn’t I buy tickets earlier?!

Is it sold out for the whole weekend already? I am supposed to be going with some friends Friday night. That’s why I was in such a hurry to finally read it.

I love cabbage, but never thought of roasting it this way. It looks delicious!

Jen @ Juanita's Cocina March 21, 2012 - 12:28 pm

I ADORE cabbage. Any ol’ way I can get it, I’ll eat it! LOL! But, I”ve never roasted.

Last night I roasted “baby cabbages”/brussel sprouts and OMG! We’ll definitely be trying this one next!

Tracey March 21, 2012 - 8:15 am

Oh wow, that looks fantastic! I’ve never roasted cabbage since it usually just gets tossed in with the corned beef, but this looks so much better :)

spiffycookie March 21, 2012 - 8:16 am

I used to toss it in too, but I prefer it this way now.

We must have both been craving cabbage last night because that’s what I made as well.
