Cooking cabbage on your stove can be smelly and reduces its nutritional value. The problem lies in sulfur-containing chemicals called isothiocynates that stink up your kitchen and 18.2 g per 1/2 cup serving of water soluble vitamin C that boiling water can destroy. Baking cabbage in the oven via dry heat cooking is a healthy and quick way to cook cabbage, and, as long as you do not overcook it, a less smelly method.

Step 6

Remove the cabbage from your oven when it is just fork tender and brown spots start to appear on the surface of the cabbage pieces.
