As a new mom, it has become apparent to me that I absolutely love showing Maddie new things.
As a ravenous toddler, she was especially glad to find out that there was food growing all around her (she still can't walk past the patch of mint without stealing a few leaves).
I think that this is why I'm always excited for the first kohlrabi of the season.
And while our CSA veterans will be well-versed in the art of kohlrabi, it is one of those veggies that just haven't hit the supermarket.
Honestly, I just don't get it. It is crispy, refreshing, versatile, and super healthy.
What's not to love?
The hardest thing about kohlrabi is peeling, which you get really good at in no time. Check out this video to see how it's done.
After it's peeled, you can enjoy it in so many ways. Even the greens are edible!
My absolute favourite way to eat kohlrabi is raw, with a dip. Some folks like to use ranch or hummus, but I feel like this veggie really loves being paired with a sesame oil-type dip.
