New to Fed+Fit? If so, welcome! I provide step-by-step photo instructions for all my recipes. The summarized and more printer-friendly recipe is recopied at the bottom of each post.

Let's get started!

Our dish starts with grass-fed butter. Put approximately 1/3 of a cup (okay you caught me, I used a whole ½ cup!) into a saucepan to melt.

Grab a head of green and purple cabbage. Peel the outer layer of the cabbage off. Cut the cabbage in half. Then cut that half, in half. With your knife on a diagonal, cut the stem out of each of the four pieces.


Cut each of those four pieces into half. Repeat the whole process for the other head of cabbage.

Lay the pieces, cut-side up, into a large baking dish. I had about 1/3 of the cauliflower leftover – just the perfect amount to make a batch of Paleo Detox Salad!

Butter melted? Pour it over each of the wedges.

Stir the dried thyme, rosemary, and sage together. Sprinkle the seasoning mix, salt, and pepper over the cabbage. Place in oven and bake at 400 for approximately 45 minutes.

    My issue with cabbage is that it tends to stink up my kitchen! Haha
    But your recipe is visually stunning, and cabbage is so yummy, that I think it’s totally worth it.

      I know what you mean! This dish, however, doesn’t have that cabbage stink! The combination of seasonings and butter made my kitchen smell fantastic.

  2. Toby Rodgers says:

    This looks amazing, I was hoping to try this with Ghee instead, any thoughts?

    1. Kelly says:

      Hi Toby! I think ghee would be a perfect substitute for butter!!

  3. Carolyn says:

    I’m on a low salt and calorie diet is this recipe for the roasted red and green cabbage good for my diet, what benifits would I get from this dish?

    1. Cassy says:

      That’s truly only a question you can answer, Carolyn! I don’t know your medical history well enough to give a firm recommendation. The cabbage have an abundance of vitamins and minerals available. If you’re curious, I recommend searching for nutrition facts online.
