For the Cabbage steak(s):

  • 1 small head cabbage (can use red or white)
  • salt and pepper
  • optional: other herbs and spices as desired (cumin, curry powder, chilli flakes, or a more mediterranean feel with oregano, thyme, rosemary, maybe even try a mexican spice mix)

Extra Veggies and to serve:

  • 1/2 C chopped leek
  • 4 button mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 C eggplant, sliced into strips
  • A few sliced olives (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • Salad greens as a side (optional)
  • Feta (or vegan Feta) to serve (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  2. Slice the cabbage in half. Lengthways, slice a ‘steak’ out of one half of your cauliflower. Do this multiple times (depending on how many ‘steaks’ you require)
  3. Drizzle a little EVOO over the ‘cabbage steak’ and sprinkle herbs and spices over the ‘steak’.
  4. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20 mins.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare your green salad in a bowl.
  6. In a fry pan, sauté the leeks, garlic, mushrooms and eggplant until reduced and fragrant.
  7. By this stage your cabbage steak should be cooked. Transfer the Cabbage Steak to a plate, top with sautéd vegetables, feta, fresh herbs.
