Cabbage Steaks

Cabbage "steaks" are perfect for anyone who isn't a huge meat lover. They're crispy and flavorful when prepared properly and make the perfect side dish for any meal. Try adding this recipe to your table this Thanksgiving!


- 1 small head green cabbage, any dark, loose leaves removed

- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tsp kosher salt

- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

- 1/3 cup raw pecan halves or walnut halves (optional)

- 1 small lemon, halved (optional but very good)

- For serving: grated parmesan and chopped fresh herbs such as thyme or parsley (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously coat a rimmed baking sheet w/ nonstick spray and set aside.

2. Cut off the bottom (root) end of the cabbage and place it on a cutting board sitting up so that the flat end is on the cutting board. Cut top to bottom into 3/4-to-1 inch thick slices. Place on the prepared baking sheet. If you have more slices than sit on your baking sheet without touching, divide them between 2 baking sheets.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Brush over one side of the cabbage, then flip the cabbage over and brush the other side. Roast the cabbage for 26 to 28 minutes, or until crispy at the edges and tender in the center. Halfway through the baking time, rotate the pan 180 degrees, if using 2 pans, switch positions on the upper and lower racks at this point too. No need to flip the cabbage over.

4. While cabbage bakes, toast the pecans in the oven at the same time: spread them onto a small, ungreased baking sheet. Toast them in the oven with the cabbage until fragrant and the center of a pecan is light tan when broken in half, about 8 minutes of baking. Remove the pecans from the oven and transfer them immediately to a cutting board. Let cool, then roughly chop.

5. Sprinkle the roasted cabbage with parmesan and fresh herbs. Squeeze the lemon over the top, then finish with the chopped pecans. Serve hot.
