non-recipe for kohlrabi matchsticks

July 17, 2012

When you’re in the middle of summer, and in the middle of an unprecedented heat wave (and without working central air), the last thing you want to do is turn on any of the heat generating appliances in the kitchen (which is a currently a cool 91°). So food options that don’t call for cooking one of the ingredients are our favorite thing at the moment. And while I’ll always have a fondness for raw carrots, my current raw obsession is kohlrabi. Sure, it can be steamed, scalloped, sautéed, boiled, braised, roasted or puréed. But for my money, peeled and sliced up like matchsticks is the way to go. (you can also shred it and toss it into your favorite chicken curry salad) As a bonus, it’s good for you (certainly better than that bag of chips that makes googly eyes at you every time you walk down that grocery aisle for sparkling water). Next year, this is totally going into our home vegetable beds.
