In the Kashmir valley in north India and is there known as ‘Monj-hakh’, ‘monj’ being the round part, and ‘hakh’ being the leafy part. I call Kohlrabi the “alien veggie” people haven’t really heard of, you can never find it in the grocery, and if there is a siting of one….was there really? Kohlrabi is a beautiful root veggie that, just like Turnips or Parsnips, is not to be feared. Although all palettes vary, for me Kohlrabi tends to lend an “apple or celery” kick and sometimes even broccoli stalk flavor to it’s bite. It is high in potassium and fiber and can be treated just like your other root veggies so don’t fret!

- 1 1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil (I used Duck Fat!!)
