This is an easy cabbage side dish and I found it hearty enough to enjoy by itself for lunch. The Chief Taster is a big fan of cabbage and ate this so quickly I thought he had inhaled it.

I wanted to liven up some cabbage and do something different with them rather than roasting slices of them.So, I decided that instead of slicing the cabbage in thick slices, I would cut the cabbage into wedges and baked them in a cheese sauce.

Not only is green cabbage a great low carb vegetable, it's also a cheap vegetable. Cabbage has 3 grams net carbohydrates a 100g serving and is high in vitamin C and K. It's a good source of potassium and fiber too.


For this roasted cabbage wedges recipe, I used half a large head of green cabbage as that would be enough as a side dish for the both of us. It gave use two cabbage wedges each. An even number so no fighting over the remaining piece too! You could perhaps use a smaller head or double up the sauce quantities for a whole head if there are more than two of you. Or have just one wedge each.

How to Make Cheesy Baked Cabbages

The wedges are par boiled to ensure that they are soft and tender as I wanted to bake them, not roast them.

Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge and covered and keep for the next day. Reheat in the oven or microwave.


Sprinkle grated cheddar or more Parmesan on top of the cabbage wedges before baking. Or try a stronger cheese like a Stilton or Blue cheese.

Add other fresh herbs such as thyme or oregano.

Add garlic or garlic powder to the cheese sauce for a stronger flavour.

    Tried this recipe out because I had some extra cabbage. My suggestion would be to simplfy the recipe and just roast the cabbage in the oven with some olive oil and seasonings til soft and then top with the cheese sauce. BUT cut the cream cheese in this recipe in half. The cream cheese took over the parmesean taste.

    which low car cheese sauce do you have?

    This is delicious! I doubled it and added a can of fire roasted chopped green chiles.


    • Angela Coleby

      I LOVE the addition of the green chiles! Yum!

    This is definitely a keeper. Today is the second time I’ve made this. I would have made it two or three more times but its been too hot to turn the oven on. LOL. The only thing I did different this time was to top with blue cheese and crumbled bacon. Ohhh so good. Thank you for sharing this recipe.


    • Angela Coleby

      I love the addition of blue cheese with bacon! Fantastic idea!


  5. Nancy

    Add a sprinkle of bacon pieces and perfection! Loved this so much I forgot to eat the grilled chicken I had made. I couldn't stop nibbling the rest of the night. Next time I double it so I can have leftovers 🥰


    • Angela Coleby

      When I first made these I enjoyed them as a main dish!

    CN you use almond milk instead of cream?


    • Angela Coleby

      Yes you could. I'd add extra seasoning though.


  7. Suzanne

    Loved it! Will definitely be making again!
