Roasted Cabbage

One of my favorite crockpot side dishes - and really quick and easy too!
This is from A Year of Slow Cooking's blog - my notes or changes are in italics.


--1 small head of cabbage
--12-14 colorful baby potatoes (or regular potatoes.... or red ones..... I've used everything!)*
--10-12 whole cloves of garlic
--1/4 cup olive oil (maybe a little more, closer to a 1/3?)
--2 T balsamic vinegar (I use AT LEAST this, honestly I usually just pour over the top..... probably more like 1/4-1/3 of a cup!)
--1 t kosher salt
--1/2 t black pepper

*Depending on how much cabbage I have I would use maybe 2-3 cups largely diced potatoes, more like chunks and if I have carrots, I usually throw in 1-2 cups, again large chunks of those as well cause my boys love cooked carrots!

--wash vegetables
--cut potatoes into 1 inch chunks (I didn't peel them)
--cut cabbage into wedges--don't worry about separating the leaves (maybe 4-6 pieces depending on how large your cabbage is)
--throw veggies into the crockpot with the whole garlic cloves
--add olive oil, salt, pepper, and balsamic vinegar
--toss with hands to coat thoroughly.

cook on high for 3 hours, low for 4-6. (I might cook mine a little longer..... closer to the 6 hrs? usually get it in by lunch time or sooner for dinner, BUT I am also at a higher altitude which might affect it too!)
the vegetables are done when the potatoes reach desired tenderness.
the cabbage will get a little caramelized and crispy around the edges where they touch the crock walls. That's okay--it tastes good!

This is wonderful hot of the crockpot, looks a little "wilted" the next day, but still tastes fine. I often will mix with some chicken or something and broth and make a veggie soup of some sort with the leftovers............. (or chop it smaller and feed it to my 11 month old!)

  1. This is just my type of recipe! I love making braised and roasted cabbage this time of year and this looks perfect for a similar recipe, in your slow cooker! My favorite kind of recipe! Plus I love how you can throw in extra veggies from your fridge if you have them!

    Thank you so much for joining my carnival!
