  • 1 medium-sized green cabbage
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for garnish)
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

Step 2: Prepare the Cabbage

  1. Remove any loose or damaged outer leaves from the cabbage.
  2. Slice the cabbage into 1-inch thick rounds, creating “steaks.”
  3. Be sure to keep the core intact as it will help the cabbage steaks hold their shape during baking.

Step 3: Season the Steaks

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, paprika, dried thyme, salt, and pepper.
  2. Brush both sides of each cabbage steak generously with the seasoned olive oil mixture.
  3. Make sure to get the mixture into the nooks and crannies of the cabbage for maximum flavor.

Step 4: Arrange on the Baking Sheet

  1. Place the seasoned cabbage steaks on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.
  2. Drizzle any remaining seasoned oil over the top.

Step 5: Bake to Perfection

  1. Bake the cabbage steaks in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until they are tender and the edges are slightly crispy.
  2. You can flip the steaks halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking.

Step 6: Garnish and Serve

  1. Once the cabbage steaks are done, remove them from the oven.
  2. If desired, sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley on top for an extra burst of flavor and color.
  3. Serve the cabbage steaks hot as a side dish or a main course.


These Baked Cabbage Steaks are a delightful surprise for your taste buds.
