Gettin’ Crazy with Kohlrabi

Farm Fresh to You keeps me on my toes. I thought chard and kale were exotic, but this weekend I received a mysterious turnip-like, bright green, root vegetable. Name? Kohlrabi. Have you heard of it? It’s in the same family as cabbage, broccoli, turnips, and more. In other words, healthy, just a little intimidating.

On the FFTY website, I found a recipe for Meat-Stuffed Kohlrabi. I simplified things in a major way, by using leftover ground turkey from our burritos on Friday night. First, I cut off the stems/leaves, and carved out the middle of each bud. Then I filled each with turkey, and placed them in simmering combination of water, white wine, garlic and the remaining Kohlrabi flesh.

They simmered for at least 30-40 minutes, until they were tender in a similar fashion to the stem of a head of broccoli after you steam it. Decent enough, but it probably would have been more productive to make stuffed peppers.
