Chili Miso Red Cabbage Steaks (Vegan)

Vegan steaks! How does that work?

Just cut some thick slices of red cabbage, roast and season them, and you have yourself a delicious vegetable main dish.

Appetizing photos of cauliflower steaks have been popping up all over my Pinterest feed lately. So, why not try out the same method on another favorite vegetable like red cabbage?

For these red cabbage “steaks”, I topped them off with an Asian-inspired chili miso sauce that is a balanced mix between spicy, sour, sweet, salty, and umami. I’ll definitely be making this combination again for dressings and more.

As usual, the best part about this meal was that it took less than 20 minutes from inception to consumption.

To make cabbage steaks, I start with a washed, whole cabbage and begin preheating the oven. Then, I slice the cabbage into roughly inch-thick rounds.

I lay the rounds out on my silicone-lined baking sheet and pop them into the oven.

While they are roasting, I prepare the sauce. I combined six ingredients together to make a flavor-packed, vegan, chili miso sauce to add dimension to the unadorned red cabbage.

When the cabbage rounds are cooked through and slightly browning, I remove the finished steaks from the oven and drizzle with chili miso sauce to taste.

That is all it takes to make a flavorful vegan meal. Try it with cabbage, cauliflower, or any other vegetable or simply change up the sauce for a completely new experience.

I hope you give vegetable steaks a try for your next meal and let me know what you think below!
