Cabbage Steaks


These cabbage steaks are super tender and slightly caramelized with a crispy panko breadcrumb mixture on top. These are easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner, yet special enough for a weekend dinner party.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 medium head green cabbage, trimmed

  • 2 ½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest, plus lemon wedges for serving

  • 2 small cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut cabbage lengthwise into 6 (3/4-inch) slices. Brush evenly with 2 tablespoons oil. Arrange on the prepared pan. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Cover with foil. Bake until tender, 35 to 40 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, combine Parmesan, panko, parsley, lemon zest, garlic and the remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil in a small bowl.

  3. Remove the foil and flip the cabbage steaks; sprinkle evenly with the panko mixture (about 1/4 cup per steak). Bake, uncovered, until the cheese is melted and the topping is golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
