Roasted Cabbage Steaks and Homemade Seasoned Salt {Healthy Family Recipes}

Can you believe it? I’m NOT posting an ice cream recipe! *GASP* I decided it was high time I buckled down and worked on some good recipes to put toward healthy meals.

Do you find it hard to get a variety of vegetables into your menu? I swear it’s my biggest struggle. A can of green beans or some steamed broccoli is great, but it gets old really fast when you’re having it several times a week! I grew up with the idea that a meal wasn’t a meal without a vegetable, so we have always included one with every meal. But finding  the variety to make it something we actually want to eat is a different story!

Cabbage is one of those vegetables I grew up hating, but have slowly come to enjoy as an adult. I have made it my mission to try and raise my kids to like as many of the vegetables I hated as a kid as I possibly can, so if there’s something I know they’ll probably hate, I look for ways to make it more enjoyable.

If you spend any time on social media at all, you’ve probably already seen the idea of the cabbage “steaks.” I decided to give it a try, but I also wanted to try a recipe out of my P90X3 Nutrition Guide. There is a huge list of DIY herb spices and blends in the guide that I’ve been wanting to test, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Oh man, can I just tell you how delicious this seasoned salt is?? It’s fabulous! Tastes dang near identical to the stuff you buy in the store, but the ingredients are all recognizable! I changed the original recipe a bit, omitting the crushed red pepper as I’m feeding a houseful of gringos. 😉 I also replaced the sea salt from the original recipe with pink Himalyan salt. Have you heard of it? Let me tell you, this is incredible stuff! It basically has the opposite effect of regular salt. Rather than causing you to retain water, it acts as a diuretic and helps cleanse your system. AWESOME! No more guilt over my obsessive use of salt!

Anyway, the cabbage steaks turned out amazing and my family actually liked it! The kids raved over it, so I know I’ve got a winner. I think I may have overcooked it just a tad, so be sure to watch it the last five minutes or so. If you can cut it with a fork it’s definitely done.

Give it a shot and see what your family thinks! If you would like to learn more about the benefits of pink Himalayan salt, let us know in the comments and we’ll share the info in a future post!
