Oven Roasted Cabbage Steaks
Cabbage, much like cauliflower, can sometimes be overlooked when it comes to delicious dishes to make. These cabbage steaks are an elegant option for serving what’s considered to be a somewhat ordinary vegetable. It’s lower carb, packed with flavor and roasting brings out the natural sweetness.
Helpful Tips for Making Cabbage Steaks
- You can adapt this recipe using any size head of cabbage. Keep in mind, larger cabbage steaks may take a few minutes longer to bake. Likewise, smaller slices may take less time. Adjust accordingly.
- Take a moment to trim the core of the cabbage so, it’s level for cutting. Use a large, sharp knife to slice.
- To lighten this dish up further, use cooking spray or an oil spritzer in place of olive oil.
- The amount of oil can be adapted to your personal taste.
- There’s a generous amount of garlic in this dish as we’re huge garlic fans. You can use more, or less.
- At the end of roasting, you can turn the oven to broil to char the leaves further. The charred pieces have a slight sweetness that enhances the overall flavor.
- I recommend cutting the slices about 1 inch thick. Remember, the cabbage will shrink while roasting.
