Roasted Celery and Cabbage

roasted celery and cabbage salad

There have been two vegetables that I’ve been dying to try roasted.  Inspired to go beyond my usual squash, brussels sprouts and sweet potato, I tried roasting celery and cabbage.  One night last week, Bob had to work late so I figured it was the perfect time to play around in the kitchen.

Maybe it’s just me, but I have never roasted either of these two vegetables, so it seemed a little strange.  Especially the celery.  But Katie and Sarah both assured me it would be fabulous.  They were right!

I threw some chopped cabbage, celery and a few grape tomatoes on a baking sheet.  With my Misto, I spritzed a bit of EVOO over everything, and then sprinkled some sea salt and black pepper.

Everything went into the oven at 400°F.  After 20 minutes, I removed the tomatoes.  The celery and cabbage stayed in the oven for 10 more minutes.

Along with some roasted kabocha squash I had from another meal, everything went on top of a bad of mixed greens and mushrooms.  I LOVE the combination of roasted and raw vegetables for a winter-time salad.

Have you ever tried roasted celery?  It was strangely delicious!  I made more yesterday for a dish that I brought to Marla‘s house for the Super Bowl/M²T³ Event.  It turned out to be quite tasty, so I’ll post the recipe tomorrow!

    I LOVE roasted celery, which I agree does not sound remotely tasty. But I love that it is and I dont have to feel guilty for having it. In fact I’ll probably make it tonight now (:

    I don’t think I’ve ever roasted celery OR cabbage. Man – I’ve got to get busy on that! I tend to stick to broccoli, potatoes, onions and carrots.

    Happy Monday to you!

    That salad happens here daily. I’m eating one right now, in fact! Roasted celery and radishes with greens and alfalfa. I also love how the heat from the veggies makes the green slightly wilty, but still cold in places. I am a HUGE fan!

    So glad you love the cabbage and celery! That’s all we get fresh up here in the winter (for a reasonable price, that is), so I eat those a lot. In fact, celery was 99cents and cabbage was 39 cents/pound last weekend, so I stocked up!

    I loved roasted cabbage! I did it by mistake one night as a bit of an experiment and it was surprising how good it tastes with some oil and sea salt and ground pepper. So simple! I am going to try the celery, never roasted it before.

    Thank you so, so much for sharing this! I have never thought to roast celery, but since pretty much every vegetable tastes 10x better roasted, this seems like a great idea. I like celery, but I do not LOVE it. I think that roasting it might push me closer to loving it!

    I have NEVER thought to roast celery before, but it makes PERFECT sense and sounds like the perfect CRUNCH to any veggie bunch 😉 Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe, I look forward to testing it out this week! Love + Shine CourtStar

    I love brussels sprouts roasted, so I’m pretty sure I’d love cabbage too. I’ve never even thought about roasting celery before, but now I’m definitely going to give it a try. You’re so right, the combo of roasted winter veggies on a salad is SO good this time of year!!

    I absolutely love roast cabbage (drizzling quarters in balsamic oil then wrapping in aluminum foil and baking is the BEST)–but celery? Hmm, I’ll have to try that one! Imagining it in my head, and I have a feeling it would taste delicious. Plus none of those obnoxious strings if you chop it up and roast it!
