I love a caesar salad as much as the next gal, but this warm version with caramalised cabbage is the one for me from now on. It's indulgent and comforting, whilst still being light. Give it a go next time you want to get some veg in but don't want a boring old salad!


Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or 180 fan. Start by mixing everything together for the caesar dressing. Add some water to thin the sauce to a drizzleable consistency, if needed.

Toss the (rinsed and dried) chickpeas in all the seasonings until they're all completely coated. Tip onto a lined baking tray and roast for about 15 mins, or until crispy and golden brown.

Melt the butter in a large, oven safe frying pan along with the olive oil. Pop in the garlic to infuse in the butter then, once frothy, carefully place in the cabbage quarters cut side down. Fry on each side for around 3-4 minutes until they're a deep rich brown, almost burnt. Place the pan into the oven for about 15-20 minutes to cook the cabbage through.

Whilst the cabbage cooks, make the breadcrumbs. Heat the oil in a frying pan then add the breadcrumbs and toss to coat in the hot oil. Sprinkle in the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Remove once they turn golden brown and crisp.

Spoon some of the dressing onto a plate then top with the charred cabbage, crispy chickpeas, breadcrumbs and some lemon zest. Squeeze over some lemon juice and tuck in! Serve with extra bread to mop up the sauce at the end.
