Cabbage Parmesan


Introducing Cabbage Parmesan... She’s low carb *and* #vegetarian and just as saucy as the original.
  • ⅓ c. plus 2 tbsp. neutral oil, divided
  • 1 large head green cabbage
  • 2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh basil, plus more for serving
  • 1 c. marinara sauce
  • ½ c. finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan
  • 8 (1/4"-thick) slices fresh mozzarella
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  1. Preheat oven to 425° and line a baking sheet with foil. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat ⅓ cup neutral oil. Cut 2 ends off cabbage, then cut cabbage lengthwise into 4 (1"- to 1½"-thick) slices. Carefully cut out core, making sure to keep layers intact, and arrange cabbage slices in skillet; season with salt. Cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 7 minutes. Transfer to prepared sheet.
  2. In a small bowl, mix garlic, basil, and remaining 2 tablespoons neutral oil. Brush top of cabbage slices with garlic mixture. Spoon ¼ cup marinara sauce on each cabbage slice. Sprinkle with Pecorino Romano. Top with 2 slices mozzarella.
  3. Bake cabbage until cheese is melted and bubbly, 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. Arrange cabbage on a platter. Drizzle with olive oil and top with basil.
