What’s not to love about cabbage? Roasted Cabbage Steaks with Mustard Vinaigrette will make you fall in love with cabbage!
First, it’s inexpensive and one head will go a long way. Cabbage, along with a potato or two, helped sustain my grandparents and parents when times were tough.
It’s versatile! The large leaves can be filled with meat and rice to make a substantial dinner. It’s perfect in soups and no summer is complete without a good, tangy coleslaw.
It’s healthful! Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, meaning it has tons of antioxidants and it’s low in carbs which it perfect in any diet. Get more information about the health benefits of cabbage here.
I’ve loved vegetables my entire life. However, growing up, my mother pretty much only boiled them. Some salt, some butter and that was pretty much it.
Then later, I discovered roasted vegetables and thought I died and went to heaven. Roasted cabbage, roasted cauliflower, roasted radishes, roasted green beans! After discovering the amazing taste of roasted vegetables, this method pretty much became my ONLY way to prepare vegetables.
Tips for making Roasted Cabbage Steaks with Mustard Vinaigrette:
- For this cabbage recipe, you could cut the head of cabbage into wedges. However, calling something a “steak” just makes it sound more hearty and substantial. No matter what you call it, this dish is delicious!
- Flipping the cabbage “steaks” to achieve even caramelization on both sides is a bit tricky. Use a large spatula and flip them quickly. If they fall apart, simply push the leaves of the “steaks” back together.
- The tangy, mustardy vinaigrette comes together quickly as the cabbage steaks roast.
Drizzle the vinaigrette over the roasted cabbage “steaks” and serve! So easy and guaranteed to turn a cabbage skeptic into a cabbage lover!
