RECIPE

KOHLRABI PARMESAN

I love kohlrabi, a delicious cultivar of cabbage, prized not only for it’s tasty bulb, but for the stem and leaves, too. Look for kohlrabi at Saturday’s OBFM at Mattawoman Creek Farms.

When roasted, the bulb has a lovely understated sweetness. For a quick and tasty side dish, roast kohlrabi, toss in butter and lemon, and coat with crushed red pepper and finely grated parmesan cheese. Here’s how to make it:

Preheat oven to 375F. Take two medium-to-large bulbs of kohlrabi and trim away stems. Completely peel the vegetable down to the tender, white flesh and cut into wedges. Place the cut kohlrabi on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet, drizzle with 2 teaspoons olive oil, and toss to coat completely. Sprinkle with sea salt and roast about 30 minutes, or until the kohlrabi wedges are fork-tender and slightly browned. 

Place in a bowl and add 2-3 tablespoons butter and toss until butter melts and coats the vegetable. Sprinkle on 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes and 2-3 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese; toss to coat, squeeze on some fresh lemon juice and serve. Makes approximately 4 servings.
