Curried Roasted Cabbage

curried roasted cabbage Remember a while back when I posted my tandoori chicken that I made with spices from Sonal of Simply Vegetarian 777?

Well, I’m back with another delicious concoction…all thanks to Sonal! This time I’m offering a curried roasted cabbage (apples & sweet onions, too) made with the Curry Spice Melange that Sonal mailed to me last month. A veggie dish for my vegetarian friend!

This time around, I was much luckier with my photo results. :)) Yay!

I just knew with the curry spice mix would be a superb addition…especially with the tart apples, sweet onions and a topping of raisins with chopped almonds. I was right!

This would make a wonderful side dish to any protein. However, I ate it as my lunch instead… it was not only tasty and filling… it was quite healthy too. I followed Sonal’s lead and prepared it using less than 1 tablespoon of oil. The juice from the apples and onions, along with the bit of oil, ensured the cabbage roasted up nice and tender.

Curried Roasted Cabbage

  • Servings: 4 as a side dish
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1/2 medium head green cabbage
1 sweet onion, sliced into thick rounds
1 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced into wedges
1 Tablespoon olive oil (or less)
2 teaspoons curry powder, hot or mild
Sea salt and ground black pepper
1-2 Tablespoons raisins
1-2 Tablespoons chopped almonds, lightly toasted

Heat the oven to 400° F.

Cut the cabbage half into four pieces. Remove the thick stem and core from each piece and discard. Slice each piece of cabbage in half again.

In a large bowl, combine the cabbage wedges with the onion rounds and apple wedges.  Drizzle with the olive oil and toss gently to coat. Sprinkle the curry powder over the cabbage mixture, lightly coating everything. Season with the salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer the mixture to a baking dish. Bake until tender and all sides are golden, about 20 minutes, turning halfway through.

Sprinkle the raisins and chopped almonds over the cabbage; toss lightly before serving.

    I feel so honored to be mentioned twice in your posts. And to surprise you back, I have cabbage all chopped up with me and I am going to make this recipe in the pan today. You are a true sweetheart and my mouth is watering thinking of the flavors going on in this recipe.
    Loads of Love!

    • Yippee…I hope you like the dish as much as I did! Your curry spice mix is sooo good, Sonal. I’m finding I want to sprinkle a bit of it on everything now. 🙂 You can count on me to be one of your “marketing reps” when you get your spices ready to sell!! ❤

      • Muaah!
        I made it and loved it! Will send you the pic and do the shout out too! I used gala apples and raisins and pan grilled these. Didn’t add almonds though. Goodness! The taste was so mind blowing with all the flavors going on!!

        • I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Sonal!! It was, in my opinion, an excellent and easy use of the spices. 🙂 I’m so glad I stumbled across the idea!

  3. Great looking dish Nancy! I just love cabbage in any form but your version with not only apples and onions but raisins and almonds. Your recipe must be delicious – looks like I need to branch out and use curry powder. Thanks for sharing “a must try” recipe 🙂
