As I've mentioned before, we have been getting a lot kohlrabi in our CSA, and coming up with new and interesting things to do with this odd veggie is tough to do! After our fresh mozzarella and roasted kohlrabi crostinis, thinking of something else took a little researching.
Nick ended up finding a recipe from A Hungry Bear for kohlrabi fritters, which totally looked worth trying. To begin, Nick collected the following ingredients:
Next he chopped up the red onion finely that we got from the CSA that week (love these!).
In a small bowl, Nick mixed the egg, garlic powder, salt, pepper and bread crumbs. Turns out we were out of traditional, out-of-a-canister breadcrumbs, so Nick used panko.
He then added the chopped onion and grated kohlrabi into the egg mixture and stirred it up nicely.
Nick then took large spoonfuls of the mixture and dropped them into a nonstick pan heated with olive oil and formed them into a patty. If the patties are not sticking together well, just add a bit more breadcrumbs to the mixture. Once they had been cooking for about 3 minutes and the sides were turning an nice golden brown and he flipped them over and cooked them on the other side until they were golden brown as well.
While these were frying Nick cooked up some chicken sausages and the corn we got from the CSA as well.
Despite the burnt look in the picture above, the fritters had a great taste to them with and a nice crunch. It was a nice alternative to raw or roasted kohlrabi and pretty easy to make as well, especially considering the 80 minutes the kohlrabi took to roast in the oven last time! The corn we got that week was amazing - it was sugary sweet and tasted just like summer. Hopefully you all have a chance to hit up your nearest farmer's market and get a few ears!
