  • 1 medium head green cabbage
  • 1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • coarse salt, to taste
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • Preheat oven to 450ºF. Brush a large sheet pan with the avocado oil.
  • Cut the head of cabbage in half and remove the core. Slice into about 8 - 1 inch wedges. Place wedges on the pan in a single layer. Brush evenly with the toasted sesame oil, sprinkle with red pepper flakes, and salt to taste.
  • Roast cabbage about 15 minutes or until the underside is browned. Turn each wedge (carefully). Roast an additional 10 minutes, until the cabbage is tender but not softened. When done, drizzle with warm honey. Serve warm or at room temperature.


TIP: To make this recipe vegan, swap the honey for maple or date syrup.
TIP: Don't crowd the sheet pan. To get a lovely char, leave plenty of space on the pan. Without enough space, the cabbage will steam.
