kohlrabi

The crazy looking purple orbs that you see in your harvest boxes is kohlrabi, a relative of broccoli. Kohlrabi resembles a root vegetable, but actually the edible globe is the modified swollen stem. The leaves are also edible. Nutritionally, kohlrabi offers generous amounts of vitamins A and C, and emphasizes the minerals potassium and calcium. It is high in fiber and contains only 40 calories per cup. Kohlrabi can be eaten either raw or cooked. I made a modified version of the following recipe:

 


Kohlrabi ‘n’ Carrot Slaw
 

1 lb kohlrabi bulbs, peeled and grated

2 large carrots, grated

1 red pepper, diced

1 small red onion, diced

2 tsp chopped fresh thyme

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 cup sour cream

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

11/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  1. Toss the kohlrabi, carrots, red pepper, onion, thyme, and garlic in a large bowl.
  1. Whisk the sour cream, oil, vinegar, chili powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  1. Pour the dressing over the vegetables and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
