I don’t find kohlrabi often at the Farmers’ Market around here, but when I do, I always buy some. The ones I picked up on Saturday were rather large, but I got lucky and they turned out to be crispy, tender and slightly sweet.
- 3 kohlrabi
- 1 small onion
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 cup vegetable broth
- dried dill
Next, I cut each in half and sliced the halves. Kohlrabi taste great just like this. But I was going to cook them for dinner; well, okay, I did eat my fair share raw…
- Next I sautéed some onions and garlic in a bit of oil and then added the kohlrabi.
- After a few minutes, I added 1/4 cup of vegetable broth, lowered the heat and simmered the dish for about 20 minutes. The kohlrabi are done when they are slightly soft but still have some “bite” to them.
- I finished the dish by seasoning it with a bit salt and pepper and sprinkled it with some dried dill:
Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes
Besides eating kohlrabi raw or sautéed, you can also mash them after cooking them first.
Questions: Have you ever had kohlrabi? If so, do you like them? Do you like cabbage? What’s your favorite vegetable from the cabbage family? I love cabbage, and one of my favorite ways to eat it is as kimchi!
