Well, I found out what Kohlrabi is.  It is a small alien species that tastes remarkably close to broccoli stems and can be cooked into the most awesome of snacks.

Chop off the kohlrabi stems and then slice the “head” into small cubes.  Sautee the cubes in a skillet of butter or olive oil.  Season with sea salt and ground pepper.  When the sides are looking a little brown and the center is a bit more tender, throw a splash of garlic salt on it and, voila, a quick delicious snack. I’m sure it would taste better if you skipped the garlic salt and sautéed it with fresh garlic. Either way, add some garlic. For even more flavor, add some kale pieces in the pan too.  I am in love with this snack and use it as a side too.  Yum! Branch out and try some kohlrabi!

P.S. It comes in purple and white.  Both taste the same.
