I always look for young kohlrabi. They have a milder taste and you don't need to cook them all the way through, so they stay crisp.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk the kohlrabi cooking water into the flour mixture, and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes. Add parsley. Stir in heavy cream. Add kohlrabi; season with salt and pepper.

Picked up the kohlrabi at a local farmers market while "at the lake". Had fun with family on naming exactly what it was before it was trimmed and pealed. That was just the start of the fun. At the last minute I included it as an additional side dish to my sister's and my turn for dinner in the cabin with extended family. Didn't have a steamer or parsley so I boiled it in chicken bullion and used cilantro in place of the parsley. Everybody loved it. Read More
