Roasted Beets, Cabbage and Green Apples (a SCD friendly recipe)

I am a big fan of roasting...anything.  I love to roast like some love to bake.  Peeling and chopping is oddly soothing to me.  And much like your seasoned baker, I find great satisfaction upon seeing the final product.  The transformation is more about the flavor than the look really, but what a grand transformation it is.  Have you ever tried a roasted beet?  It's a beautiful thing, and not just the color I'm talking about here, oh that flavor.  And cabbage?  Delicious!  This dish was inspired by Valentine's Day.  I call this an "any-time" dish.  I ate it for lunch, as a main dish, and a side dish and yes, a few eggs made this a great breakfast.  What a fun and healthy way to get a splash of vibrant red on the ever popular lovers Holiday (oh, and be sure to wear a nice big apron to cover your pretty clothes - beets are wonderful but so unforgiving).

- 1 lb red beets, chopped (about 5)
- 11 oz green cabbage, sliced  (3/4 of small head of cabbage)
- 3 1/2 lbs of Granny Smith apples, chopped (3 extra large)
- 3 tablespoons oil (I use grapeseed)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic granules

How To:
Preheat oven to 375
1.  Add beets, cabbage, apples, salt, oil and garlic granules to roasting pan of choice (I use a 4 QT glass Pyrex).
2.  Mix well
3.  Roast for 35 minutes 
4.  Mix and serve 
  Ready for the oven.  
Just love that beautiful color


  1. This looks absolutely delicious Amber! I have never combined beets with cabbage before. The flavors must pair perfectly together, especially when roasted. I love that you had this for breakfast with eggs--now that is a healthy breakfast I must try!

  2. Looks wonderful! I love roasted apples and combined with beets - yummy sweetness! I've never roasted cabbage though, will definitely try this!

  3. This looks good. Will have to try and see if I can get my hubby to eat it, lol, he's not a cabbage person. New follower from allergy free Wednesdays. Would love to have you follow back.

    1. Hi There Erin,

      Thanks for being a part of Allergy-Free Wednesdays! Great to have you.

      Be Well,

  4. How pretty that is! I've tried something like it in a slow cooker but I think I would like it better roasted. Roasted beets are wonderful!

    1. Oh yes, I think roasting imparts a fantastic flavor. And it's a quick roast (about 35 minutes). So delicious!

      Be Well,

  5. Hi Amber,
    This is a fabulous vegetable dish. I just love the combination of the Roasted Beets and Cabbage with the Apples, I can almost taste it! Hope you have a wonderful week and Special Valentine's Day. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  6. I was SO excited to find my two favorite vegetables, beets and cabbage, in the same (gluten free) dish!

    I actually loved this recipe so much that I included it in a spring inspired gluten free recipe round-up. Thank you for crafting such an allergy-friendly (delicious) recipe!


  7. Made this tonight and it's delicious! Any idea what the calorie count is? :)
