Kohlrabi with Flair

Kohlrabi….that thing that comes every week in the CSA. It’s not exciting, nor particularly tasteful. It’s just kohlrabi. It’s suppose to be easy to grow in almost any environment…and I believe it. Have you gathered I’m not quite a fan of this root vegetable? Maybe it’s because everyone seems to roast it and throw some spices or cheese on it. Call it a day at that? Maybe the first time I ate it. But you can only roast a root vegetable like that so many times…..so I decided to try spice.

What’s the one genre of food that is always full of spice and flare? Indian! Yes, what about a Kohlrabi curry?

Kohlrabi Curry(servings 2)

  • 1 large kohlrabi, cut into half inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon(s) olive oil, extra virgin
  • 1 small onion, sweet, diced
  • 1/8 cup(s) water
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cumin seeds
  • 1 15 oz. diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon(s) curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
Roast at 450F for 20 minutes diced Kohlrabi.
In a pan over medium heat, heat olive oil until warm. Add water and cumin seeds. The cumin seeds should begin to shake in
the heat. This is called tempering and allows the flavor from the cumin to release.
Add the onion and cook till soft.
Add the rest of the ingredients (tomato and spices) and stir until combined. Cook on low to medium low for 5-10 minutes
allowing the spices to combine and bloom together.
 
Serving Suggestions: Serve with rice or indian flatbread.

It tastes so much better than plain old roasted kohlrabi! I promise you! When you eat this veggie curry, you’ll have to think about all the others who still just roast their Kohlrabi.

Is there something that you find bland and boring because you only know how to cook it one way?

What’s your most hated item to see in your CSA?

What I Ate Wednesday – Upcoming Posts

You’ve probably noticed I’ve been MIA lately. So sorry about that! I have been pulled away from my job and normal life the past few days. I’m back though and ready to posts all of these recipes that I meant to post sooner! Look for changes to this post throughout today (Wednesday) as I create links to the pictures you see here.

As always, the lovely WIAW party is hosted by Jen at Peas and Crayons. You should check out her blog if you haven’t already!

Hopefully I can also posts some breakfast pictures. I had two bananas this morning, does that truly count as breakfast? Yeah, didn’t think so. It’s okay though because I will have amazing breakfast pictures soon. Anyways, the pictures of food that I keep meaning to post…..

Of course it is June and we are focussing on sensible snacking. My snacks this week haven’t been perfect as I haven’t been in my normal daily activities. I have however been snacking on carrots dipped in homemade BBQ sauce! I know it sounds weird, but trust me. It’s my trade off for not eating fattening BBQ potato chips!

My “unhealthy” snacks lately are larabars and energy “waffles”. It’s not so much that they’re unhealthy, but they’re not my normal fresh, non-packaged snack.

Promise, promise, promise to start posting recipes and linking them out from here tomorrow! Sorry for my lack of ability to post lately, it was not due to my planning!
