Kohlrabi Home Fries
Time: About 30 minutes
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
1 1/2 to 2 pounds kohlrabi
1 tablespoon rice flour, chickpea flour or semolina (more as needed)
Salt to taste
2 to 4 tablespoons canola oil or grapeseed oil, as needed
Chili powder, ground cumin, curry powder or paprika to taste
Peel the kohlrabi and cut into thick sticks, about 1/3 to 1/2 inch wide and about 2 inches long.
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a heavy skillet (cast iron is good). Meanwhile, place the flour in a large bowl, season with salt if desired and quickly toss the kohlrabi sticks in the flour so that they are lightly coated.
When the oil is rippling, carefully add the kohlrabi to the pan in batches so that the pan isn't crowded. Cook on one side until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Then, using tongs, turn the pieces over to brown on the other side for another 2 to 3 minutes. The procedure should take only about 5 minutes if there is enough oil in the pan. Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle right away with the seasoning of your choice. Serve hot.
Roasted Vegetable Bistro Salad
The best part of this salad is that you can really use any extra veggies that you have. Seriously anything you've got hiding in the fridge will work. If you don’t want to poach the eggs, just top with your favorite style egg.
4 cups vegetables (you pick!), cut into large chunks 1⁄4 cup olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 1 garlic clove, grated
Small pinch of smoked paprika
4 large eggs
1 pound salad mix
4 tablespoons Whole Grain Mustard Vinaigrette Flaky sea salt (for serving)
Preheat oven to 450°. Toss vegetables with oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, rotating pans halfway through, until vegetables are golden and tender, 25–30 minutes. Place grated garlic and smoked paprika in a large bowl. Add roasted vegetables and toss to combine.
Meanwhile, bring 2” water to a boil in a large saucepan; reduce heat so water isat a gentle simmer. Crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently slide egg into water. Repeat with remaining eggs, waiting until white of egg in water is opaque before adding the next egg (about 30 seconds apart). Poach until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer eggs to paper towels as they are done.
Toss salad mix and roasted vegetables with dressing and season with sea salt and pepper. Divide salad among plates and top each with a poached egg.
4 ounces slab or thick-cut bacon, cut into small pieces
1 pound medium kohlrabies, peeled, cut into 1⁄3-inch-thick wedges, plus coarsely torn kohlrabi greens 6 scallions, white and pale-green parts only, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon begins to brown, 5–7 minutes; transfer to a bowl.
Increase heat to medium-high and cook kohlrabies in skillet, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add scallions and garlic and cook, tossing, until scallions are soft and garlic is golden, about 3 minutes. Add kohlrabi greens and 3 Tbsp. water and cook, tossing, until greens are tender, about 2 minutes. Add bacon and soy sauce and toss to combine; season with salt and pepper.
For the Fritters:
1 spring onion, minced
1 carrot, peeled and grated
1-2 medium kohlrabi, leaves removed, peeled and grated 1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
For the Yogurt Sauce:
1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 tbsp lemon zest
1/2 tbsp chopped parsley, cilantro or basil 1 tbsp olive oil
1/8 tsp salt
After you have grated the vegetables, measure them out to a total of 3 cups. Combine carrots, kohlrabi, and spring onion in a strainer and sprinkle with salt, let sit for 10 minutes and then wring out excess liquid with hands.. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl.
Add egg, flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper and mix to coat evenly.
Add oil to cast iron skillet (or a regular frying pan is OK) over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot enough, drop 1/4 cup of fritter batter into the pan and flatten out with a spatula. Depending on the size of your skillet, cook a few fritters at a time, leaving space in-between. Cook for a 3-5 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown and crispy.
Transfer cooked fritters to a paper towel to absorb some oil.
Serve with yogurt sauce:
Mix yogurt, lemon zest, parsley, oil, and salt until combined. Serve alongside fritters.
