Cabbage and Kohlrabi Recipes


All CSA members should have received an email today from Sue listing the anticipated share for Thursday.  They are anticipating having cilantro, kale, kohlrabi, cabbage, beets, ,broccoli, onions, peas, green beans, lettuce, spinach, radish, swiss chard, thyme and parsley.

I am really looking forward to this, especially because I am an herb junkie.

Sue has some recipes she wanted to pass along.

The first is a peanut slaw.  (Click here for recipe.)  It looks amazing.  We have been having a hard time using up all of the cabbage, so I think we will definitely try this one this week.

The next is for a kohlrabi salad.  (Click here for recipe.)  This has a Russian-Korean marinade and sounds delicious.  The salad looks amazing, and even if you don’t plan to make it, you might want to check out the link.  The pictures of the food are inspiring.

Here’s a recipe for kohlrabi slaw.  (Click here for recipe.)  I was really glad to find these kohlrabi recipes because truth be told, I have never had or even heard of kohlrabi before.  This is another good, no cook summer recipe.

And finally there is a recipe for roasted cabbage steaks.  (Click here for recipe.)  I just ate dinner about an hour ago, and as I was reading through this recipe, my mouth started to water.  We are having salmon for dinner tomorrow, so I think I will make this to go along with it.  I never knew I could crave cabbage so much, but this recipe showed me how!

As always, if you find any great recipes, feel free to share them with everyone.  All of the above recipes were collected on Food Gawker.  It is a treasury of tasty recipes.

I hope to see some of you at pick up tomorrow!

    I’d love to know how to make that broccoli cheese soup if you have the recipe lying around :-)

      I will post a recipe in a couple of days. I just found out my lactose intolerant daughter won’t be here for dinner one night, and we have a bunch of broccoli, so I’ll be happy to dig it out and post about it here!

    I find a good way to use up CSA veggies is to make soup. I’m on the 1/2 share plan. I used the turnips in my first share to make cream of turnip soup–was so good. Last night I made a broccoli cheese soup that was supposed to taste like Panera’s recipe. My daughter agreed. It used up the green onions, the carrots, and the broccoli and cauliflower from my second share.

      Ooh – cream of turnip soup sounds good! Unfortunately my daughter can’t have dairy, but maybe I’ll make some for myself. The broccoli soup sounds good too. That’s the soup my poor daughter misses the most.
