For the Cabbage Steaks:

  • 1 large head of cabbage
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Garlic Breadcrumbs:

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt to taste


  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage. Cut the cabbage into 1-inch thick slices, ensuring each slice remains intact with the core.
  3. Brush both sides of each cabbage steak with olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange the cabbage steaks in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are crispy and the center is tender.
  5. While the cabbage is roasting, prepare the garlic breadcrumbs. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  6. Add the breadcrumbs to the skillet. Stir frequently until the breadcrumbs are golden brown and crispy. Remove from heat and stir in the chopped parsley. Season with salt to taste.
  7. Once the cabbage steaks are roasted, transfer them to a serving platter. Sprinkle the garlic breadcrumbs over the top of each cabbage steak.
  8. If desired, garnish with grated Parmesan cheese and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
