Kohlrabi Rocks!

Isn’t this kohlrabi beautiful? My share partner at Trillium Haven, the CSA farm I joined this year didn’t want her half of this lovely, so I took it home make some Kohlrabi fries.

First, I peeled it and sliced it like potato and browned the sliced in a pan with a bit of olive oil.

The result was delightful. The “fries” tasted great and the kids LOVE them.

If only Kohlrabi were bigger. The one I cooked up didn’t last long.

How do you cook your kohlrabi?

I never thought about cooking it! I’ve always just had it raw – in slices or in matchsticks in salads. When I was a kid my mom always grew the green kind, and it could get very big as long as it was watered enough.

Yours looks… YUM.

oooh, kohlrabi! I’ve shredded it and sauteed it with some olive oil and then sprinkled some parmesan cheese over it, stirring a couple of times in the pan so the cheese melts. Tasty! I’m trying some “fries” soon!

My FIL used to grow kohlrabi in his garden. Their soil wasn’t the greatest and for a while it was one of the few things that grew well. My MIL used to just boil it up. She used it a lot in stews and casseroles. As their soil improved due to lots of tender loving care from my FIL they grew a lot of other things and less of the kohlrabi. My kids never liked it much … never tried it as chips.
