IMG_3233This is the link to last year’s recipe for breaded zucchini flowers. Last year I made the mistake of planting too many zucchini plants too close together.   However, the bonus was hundreds of zucchini flowers. This year I planted the right number for the size of the garden, so I have less flowers.   As for the zucchini, I will probably end up with the same, because they have more room to grow.

kholrabi salad

Not only is kholrabi a beautiful strange looking vegetable but it is very versatile and can be served in hundreds of ways.  Cooked, raw, diced, pureed, boiled, roasted or grilled.

You can use kholrabi in soups or as a side dish. Because these kohlrabi were picked a few hours ago, the best way to get the most nutrients would be to serve them raw. So I decided to make a salad. Amazing taste and very refreshing. The next time I make it which will be next week when I get a chance to buy more at the farmer’s market stand in Ottawa, from Herbivor Farm will cut the kholrabi into thinner strips.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

With a sharp knife, cut off the “branches” of the kohlrabi & peel the bulbs with a vegetable peeler

Cut into strips either using a sharp knife or a mandolin

In a small dish combine olive oil , balsamic vinegar, chopped parsley, basil and garlic

Drizzle dressing over the kohlrabi strips

Add salt & pepper to taste

If you like you can add other spices, chopped nuts, hemp seeds or shaved coconut _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
