IMG_8877I love red cabbage. It is a beautiful vegetable and using it is a wonderful way to add vibrant color and crispy texture to a variety of dishes.  Although cabbage has an undeserved reputation for being boring, this recipe is very tasty. Red cabbage is also a healthy superfood filled with powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory nutrients. My husband loves this.

Oven Roasted Cabbage


  • Red cabbage
  • Garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Flaky salt & pepper
  • Parsley


I use about half a cabbage for a bowl of oven-roasted cabbage. The cabbage shrinks in the oven so it might look like a lot when you first put it in the oven.

  1. Preheat the oven on 400 oF.
  2. Slice the cabbage about ½” thick pieces and put it on an oven sheet.
  3. Thinly slice two cloves of garlic and add to the cabbage.
  4. Sprinkle a little olive oil over the cabbage, and turn the cabbage to coat it all.
  5. Cook in the oven until parts of the cabbage gets crispy.
  6. Once the cabbage is done, remove from the oven and sprinkle with flaky sea salt and pepper.
  7. Let the cabbage cool off for a bit, sprinkle with parsley and serve.

We ate this for dinner with some tabbouleh, avocado salad, tzatziki and garlic/basil bread. I will post these recipes in the future.

You can also add a bit of shredded parmesan cheese to top it off.

I LOVE FOOD and better yet I LOVE TO COOK.

I can thank my Vietnamese roots. Vietnamese people use a great amount of time cooking and eating, traits which they have learned from their families. Everyone seems to know how to cook, and they are adept at picking fresh and quality foods from the market. Food is a priority in Vietnam – if you eat well, you live well.

I was born in Denmark, and in my mind I am a true Dane. Danish people cook a lot as well, but they prefer to spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table. I consider myself Vietnamese from a culinary standpoint and Danish from a cultural standpoint (and I live in New York, which is a Mecca for foodies).

My mum is a great cook, she taught me how to chop vegetables and how to just randomly throw things together and somehow get an awesome meal. She makes cooking seem like art, and she is my inspiration for DiepLicious cooking.

My husband loves food as well and he has a great appetite. Cooking for him is a real joy. He has a great interest in everything that concerns health, and loves to point out specific foods and why they are good for you to eat. I will share his knowledge with you. He makes my cooking more challenging, but also a lot healthier.

I offer you one Golden Rule: to enjoy food fully, always taste the food even if you don’t like it. For me it takes a couple of tries to get to know the real flavor.
