As last weekend was the first Saturday of our local Farmer's Market, it is time once again to begin Adventures in Vegetables. This week I decided to buy a kohlrabi, mostly because it was funny looking, and seemed to be a good bargain - $3 for a kohlrabi weighing in at about 3lb. Having no idea of what to do with it once I got it home, I perused my cookbooks to no avail, and then decided to check allrecipes.com where I got this recipe for Roasted Kohlrabi.
What I did, seeing as I had a Giant Kohlrabi was this:
1/2 giant kohlrabi, peeled and cut into 1/4 in slices
Preheat oven to 450deg. Place kohlrabi slices onto baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with minced garlic to taste. Roast for 15-20 min, stirring once part way through to ensure even browning.
We served it with panfried pork steaks, so I didn't use the Parmesan called for in the original recipe. It was tasty, but I think I'd use much less olive oil and bake them slightly longer to achieve more of a chip-like texture. Not sure if I'd make this again, but it was quick and easy.
