So, remember how I was at a total loss on what to do with this kohlrabi I inherited? Well, with a little research and chili powder, I did something that's totally confusing my guilt meter. I made this vegetable into the crispiest oven fries ever.
Yep. This cabbage guy = french fries. I know.
I am a super fan of oven baked sweet potato fries and always try to persuade myself that they are better for you than regular fries. I know that they are, sort of... but, I'm not completely convinced. THIS gets me.
Recipe for Kohlrabi Fries
1 large kohlrabi (you can find these easily at the grocery store, I promise!)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 tsp chili powder
dash of black pepper
Preheat oven to 425F. Peel the leaves off your kohlrabi, wash, and cut into small, fry-sized wedges. Toss with rest of ingredients and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until very golden brown and crispy.
Serve with spicy ketchup or a herb yogurt dressing. YOU'RE WELCOME!
