Roasted red cabbage steaks with crispy chickpeas

Roasted red cabbage steaks with crispy chickpeas

Based on 24 ratings

"When brushed with marinade and cooked in the oven for a long time, on high, red cabbage becomes wonderfully tender, caramelized delight. In this recipe, the ‘steaks’ are served on a bed of cauliflower purée and topped with crispy chickpeas. It’s light on the wallet too, elevating affordable ingredients to create a dish you’d happily serve up to impress, whether yourself, your family, or guests. If you like, you can give the cauliflower purée a more intense and cheesy flavour either with 1 – 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast and more salt, or with Parmesan cheese. Feel free to season the chickpeas with the spices of your choice, such as paprika and coriander powder."
