Roasted Red Cabbage with Peanut Sauce

Roasted cabbage is one of the most underrated roast veggies - something magical happens in the oven and this once crunchy, grassy and slightly bitter vegetable transforms into a sweet caramelized, buttery roast with slightly charred, crispy edges. It's perfect as a side dish, with noodles, or as a salad or buddah bowl.

  • Roasting tray or dutch oven


Red Cabbage

  • 1/2 head of red cabbage
  • olive oil
  • salt

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/2 cup smooth natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 fresh lime juiced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika

To serve

  • fresh coriander


  • Preheat oven to 220C/425F. Cut the cabbage in half, through the core, then cut those pieces in half again so you have 4 wedges.
  • Coat cabbage wedges in oil and generous pinch of salt. Roast for 45 minutes, until edges are crispy with some slight charring. Cabbage should be tender.
  • Combine all sauce ingredients in a serving jug or small bowl and mix well.
  • Once the cabbage is done, serve immediately with sauce drizzled over the top and garnish with coriander leaves.
