How to Roast Kohlrabi + Video

More & more often, I am able to pick up some of the more rare vegetables in our grocers, and show you something like this Roasted Kohlrabi.

How to Roast Kohlrabi - cookingwithkimberly.comKohlrabi is something I don’t get to see very often in our stores up here, anyway. Not only finding it, but finding it in good condition in the grocer is essential.

When you do find this odd vegetable, don’t be scared. It tastes like a cross between cabbage, broccoli & parsnips, with my taste buds anyway.

They have the texture or consistency of an apple when cut, and despite not having leaves, smells like cabbage.

How to Roast Kohlrabi:

If you don’t know what to do with a vegetable, roasting it usually brings out nice, natural flavors, and seems to always be a great option for a wonderful side dish.

Being that they are nice and dense, they will take a little time to roast off.
