Here comes Kohlrabi!

Will kohlrabi, another vegetable that belongs in the super-star group of Brassicas, be the next kale? Have you heard of it? Have you seen one and not known what it was? Have you received one in a CSA box of vegetables and not known what to do with it, other than maybe laugh at how funny it looks?

Apparently I have not taken any photos of the bulb growing above ground to which these leaves are attached (or I have not yet labeled it in my burgeoning file of digital photos!), but here you can see the beautiful leaves (use them just like other greens) and a package of kohlrabi seeds I was given at a seed exchange one year.

Well, thank the New York Times, which is going to help you out with a series of recipes this week featuring kohlrabi. Hop on over to this link to get started. Bon appetit!

Where kale (and kohlrabi) are more than decoration on my plate!
