Greek Style Kohlrabi

I began looking for Kohlrabi recipes on the internet when I had my first one in a veg box about 3 years ago. I had no idea what to do with it so desperately needed some help. I apologise for not remembering where I found this, as I can't give credit where it is due, but I hope you enjoy it. The combination of fresh pears, dates and feta cheese is perfect.

Ingredients

  • 2 small to medium Kohlrabi, diced
  • 2 pairs
  • 100g Feta cheese
  • 100g salad leaves
  • 50g dates, chopped
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsps olive oil

Method

  • Serves 4 as a small meal.
  • Peel and dice the kohlrabi into 1cm cubes and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with the olive oil and bake at 180°C for 20 minutes or until completely soft.
  • Slice the pears into halves and remove the cores, then slice.
  • Put the salad leaves into a bowl or on a serving plate, arranging the pear slices and roasted kohlrabi on top. Crumble the Feta cheese over the top of the salad.
  • For the dressing, mix the balsamic vinegar, honey and chopped dates and pour over the salad.

Bilby Boost

  • If you wish, you can replace the honey with maple syrup and the balsamic vinegar with lemon to give a more tart dressing.
