BAKED CABBAGE STEAKS: A Creative Twist on a Humble Veggie



For the Cabbage Steaks:

1 medium-sized green cabbage.

2 to 3 Tbsp.Of olive oil.

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.

Optional seasonings: garlic powder, paprika, dried thyme, or grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.

For Garnish:

Fresh chopped herbs (parsley, chives, or cilantro).

A squeeze of lemon juice (optional).

Grated Parmesan cheese (optional).


Step 1

Set the oven’s temperature to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or gently oil it while it’s heating up to avoid sticking.

Step 2

Slice the cabbage horizontally into thick “steaks” that are approximately an inch thick. To keep the cabbage steaks together, make sure the center is unbroken.

Step 3

Set the sliced cabbage on the baking sheet that has been prepared. Olive oil should be gently drizzled over each steak while you do this. Add salt, freshly ground black pepper, and any other spices of your choosing, such as paprika, dried thyme, or garlic powder. If you like cheese, a small sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese can enhance the taste.

Step 4

Place the baking sheet in the hot oven, and bake it there for 25 to 30 minutes. To ensure consistent cooking, keep an eye on them and turn the steaks halfway during the baking period. The outside should be somewhat browned and crispy while the interior should remain delicate.

Step 5

Take your baked cabbage steaks out of the oven when they are crispy and golden brown. Add some additional Parmesan cheese for the final touch, along with some freshly chopped herbs, a squeeze of lemon juice for brightness (if preferred), and fresh herbs.

Step 6

Offer your Baked Cabbage Steaks as a distinct and enticing side dish that will wow even the pickiest diners. These steaks will be a delicious complement to any dinner because of the mix of crispy edges, delicate middle, and a symphony of flavors.
