What is it you ask? It’s a root veggie, much like a turnip. In fact, kohlrabi means ‘cabbage turnip’ in German apparently. The flavor is much like a broccoli stalk and well, let’s just say they’re delicious and abundant right now!
So now that my CSA basket has 4 of them in there, I need to tackle the kohlrabi and get those babies cooked! Here’s the recipe I’m making tonight:
- 4 big kohlrabi; skinned and diced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic pressed
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, toss the diced kohlrabi with olive oil, garlic; salt and pepper to taste and salt in a bowl. Spread evenly on a pan and put into oven (it needn’t be fully preheated) and roast for 30 – 35 minutes, stirring every five minutes after about 20 minutes.
