I think the flavor of kohlrabi is similar to broccoli but not quite the same, however this opinion is not shared by my sister so even if you aren't a huge fan of broccoli, there is still a good chance you might like it. I, unfortunately, am not really a fan of broccoli. Although I don't hate it, I prefer it slathered in garlic and cheese. (Does it count if it is slathered in cheese? Growing up I remember it being served with Velveeta. Don't judge people, it was amazing!)
Google helped my find many different recipes for using greens such as beet greens and spinach. I decided to try something simple.
Kohlrabi greens from 4 bulbs
1 tsp Organic Sesame Seed Oil
1 tsp Organic Soy Sauce
ground black pepper
Heat a pan of boiling water.
Remove the stems from the greens.
Once the water is boiling, put greens in to the water for 2-5 minutes depending on how soft you like them. (Larger leaves need more time to soften.)
Toss in a bowl with the oil and soy sauce.
Top with pepper.
The verdict? These are pretty good. Even I enjoyed them. I thought they would be slimy but they weren't. The green held their shape and texture and weren't limp and mushy. I am hoping there are more this week as I would love to try wilting them with garlic and oil.
