One of my favourite things about being part of a Community Supported Agriculture program is that it forces us to try new vegetables that we’ve never seen or tasted before. Last year we got some kohlrabi in our box and I had no idea what it was, and no idea how to cook it. I’ve experimented since then and it has now become one of my favourite veggies. After googling the health benefits of it and finding all good things, it has now become a regular vegetable in our house. Click HERE to read about the benefits.
No surprise, my favourite way to eat it is oven roasted. I like to mix it in with potatoes and a few other veggies to create a nice medley of flavours.
-1 kohlrabi, peeled and stems/leaves removed
-2 potatoes (sweet potatoes work well also)
-1 large bell pepper
-2 cloves of garlic, diced small
-salt and pepper to taste
-1 tbsp coconut oil, approximately
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit.
2) Rinse and chop the kohlrabi, potatoes and pepper into 1 inch chunks.
3) Toss in a bowl with the garlic and coconut oil. Spread the mixture evenly onto a lined baking sheet.
4) Roast for approximately 30 minutes or until kohlrabi and potatoes are lightly browned.
