Preheat the oven to 180 ºC; this will be the first step to prepare the oven-roasted cabbage. Remove all the old cabbage leaves and then cut the vegetable into slices about 1 cm thick.
Careful not to break them, place the cabbage slices on the oven rack previously lined with parchment paper.
Tip: Place the cabbage slices together on the rack so that they do not burn so quickly when roasting.
In a bowl, mix all the seasonings: oil, garlic, pepper, and salt. Then spread the vegetables with this mixture with the help of a spoon or a kitchen brush and then put the cabbage in the oven at 180 °C for 20 minutes connecting the fan if possible, or until it is soft in the center and crispy around the edges.
If your oven does not have the fan function open the door for a moment after the first 10 minutes of cooking to remove excess steam and close it again, this way, you will get a crispy oven-roasted cabbage, and it will not taste as if it was just cooked.
Tip: If you have oil spray, you can use it when seasoning the baked cabbage; it is much faster than brushing it.
After the indicated time, the light baked cabbage recipe will be ready. You can serve it as a starter or accompaniment to your favorite meals, such as orange chicken thighs or whole baked sea bass with potatoes.
And if you love this vegetable, be sure to try this stewed cabbage recipe another time to cook it in a different, original, and equally tasty way.
