Kohlrabi Fries

Kohlrabi from Siena Farms in Sudbury, MA

Kohlrabi is another new favorite of mine.  Based on appearance, when it arrived in my CSA box, it could have easily been confused with cabbage.  Instead, it reminds me of a cross between radish and potato.  This great textured vegetable is extremely versatile- whether you shave it raw for a salad, puree it for a beautiful side with meat or grate it for a latke alternative (as recommended by Ana Sortun at Oleana in Cambridge).  Last night I chopped it up, seasoned to taste with fennel, coriander, paprika and cayenne and then roasted the strips in the oven with a little EVOO to make veggie fries.  Delicious, served with Sorrel Yogurt Dipping Sauce on the side and Thyme Ginger Sole!  Also, added bonus…this veggie is loaded with Vitamin C.  A 135g serving has over 140% of your recommended daily intake.  Delish!
