Elegant Braised Kohlrabi

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Wasyetz

This is a simple recipe that I like to make with our first crop from the garden. Fresh herbs make this a delight. Prep time will depend on the size of your kohlrabi. Expect to be present for the duration of the cooking of this dish. Enjoy!!

Absolutely lovely recipe. PLEASE be sure to pare your kohlrabi carefully as the outside is very woody & nasty. I also used dried tarragon & a splash of cream at the end. Delightful. Except for the tough edges. :(
