Soy Free Recipe: A Cabbage Steak Taste Test

Before I found out I was allergic to soy, I really didn’t enjoy cooking very much. It was just another chore on the to do list. Now that I see food differently, I like to have fun with my food and experiment in the kitchen.

Today’s experiment is with cabbage steaks. I have never tried them and have heard that they are delicious. However, most of the recipes I see online are basted with oil, salt, pepper, and maybe some garlic thrown in. So, I decided to try out different types of seasoning to see if I can “elevate” the cabbage steak to new levels of flavor.


First, I basted each piece with oil. Then, I tried different seasonings:

On the left-hand side (starting in the back), you have Bragg’s organic seasoning, Penzey’s Old World seasoning, Penzey’s Greek seasoning.

On the right-hand side (starting in the back), you have curry power followed by plain salt/pepper/garlic powder.

So who won the taste test? Actually, my husband and I had completely different favorites:

Alanna:                                                  Chris:

1. Curry Powder                                1. Penzey’s Old World

2. Bragg’s Seasoning                      2. Curry Powder

3. Penzey’s Old World                    3. Salt/Pepper/Garlic Powder

4. Penzey’s Greek                             4. Bragg’s Seasoning

5. Salt/Pepper/Garlic Powder     5. Penzey’s Greek

Bottom Line: Definitely check out the curry powder and Penzey’s Old World seasoning!
