June 25--Kohlrabi

Butter-Braised Sliced Kohlrabi

1 ½ lbs kohlrabies
4-6 T butter
onions, chopped

Peel and slice kohlrabies into 1/4 inch pieces. Heat 2 T. butter and sauté the onions until wilted, add the kohlrabies, and lightly brown for about 5 minutes. Add remaining butter and season with salt and pepper. Cover, and slowly cook until kohlrabies are tender, 20-25 minutes.

What an easy recipe! The only caveat is to not slice the kohlrabies too thin. The recipe says 1/4" and slices should not be any thinner than that. Any thinner, and you risk burning the slices. I learned that the hard way last summer! This time I was much more careful to slice them a little thicker and to watch as they cooked. I didn't need to cook them more than 15 or so minutes.
