Per serving (2 steaks):
278kcals, 18.1g fat (5.5g saturated), 18g carbs, 8.5g sugars, 13.9g protein, 5.4g fibre, 0.598g sodium

10 minutes
40 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Serves: Serves 4 as a main (or 8 as a side)
Olive oil, for brushing
1 small head of cabbage
Salt and black pepper
3 tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
60g Parmesan, grated
60g streaky bacon, chopped
To serve:
2 tomatoes, chopped
Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling


1 Preheat the oven to 200˚C/180˚C fan/gas mark 6. Brush a large baking tray with olive oil.
2 Trim the very end of the stem from the cabbage, removing any brown or dry parts but leaving the full stem intact to keep the slices together. Slice cabbage into 2cm slices.
3 Place the cabbage slices on the prepared baking tray and brush with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
4 Sprinkle each slice evenly with breadcrumbs and Italian seasoning. Top with the grated Parmesan and bacon and drizzle with olive oil.
5 Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and cover tightly with foil. Return to the oven for another 20 minutes or until the cabbage slices are tender but still retain a little crunch.
6 To serve, scatter with the chopped tomatoes and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
