When I was a kid I didn't like kohlrabi. I can't imagine why was that but, it's a fact.
I had no idea. But, w I was hopelessly in love with this vegetable.Don't get me wrong, ok ?
Don't you want us to talk a little bit about my love (LOL)?I don't have to tell you about a reliable help for diabetics by reducing the blood glucose level, eliminates water from the body and helps heal viral infections, bronchitis, cough, angina.
Don't you already love it ? I'm sure you do.
Kohlrabi can be eaten raw, boiled, baked, cooked or pickled. Root or leaves...it's the same real benefit for your body.
Today,the queen of my kitchen was kohlrabi leaf and I choose to make two different dishes: a salad leaves and stuffed leaves. It sounds great, isn't it ?
Kohlrabi - Cauliflower - Walnuts Salad
fresh baby kohlrabi leaves (very well washed and drained)
1 tbs olive oil
ground dried chili
thin slices of black olives
lemon/lime juice on your taste
Wash cauliflower very well, divide it in bouquets and boil them in salty water. Drain after that. Keep them warm.
Saute kohlrabi leaves in olive oil and stir in for few times. Add salt and a very small amount of water over all. Let it simmer for about 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Combine all ingredients on a plate. Sprinkle few drops of olive oil and the chili over the cauliflower. You can add to this salad some cheese or some barbequed kitchen breast...it's all up to you and your imagination.
This salad has just one rule: the rule of "simple" (simple by itself, simple to do and simple to eat).
What can be better than that ?
The next post will be about those tasty-naughty stuffed kohlrabi leaves. Till then, I enjoy my salad ! It's getting cold !:))
frunze proaspete si tinere de gulie, foarte bine spalate si scurse
1 l-ra ulei de masline
chili uscat si zdrobit
feliute de masline negre
suc de lamiie/ lime
Spala conopida si separ-o in buchete. Fierbe-le in apa cu sare. Scurge-le si pastreaza-le calde.
Soteaza frunzele de gulie in ulei. Adauga sare si o cantitate foarte mica de apa. Fierbe-le pentru 1-2 minute.
Combina toate ingredientele pe o farfurie, stropeste cu citeva picaturi de ulei si presara cu chili (doar conopida).Poti adauga la salata si ceva brinza sau piept de pui prajit pe tigaia grill. Depinde de tine si de imaginatia ta.
Salata asta are o singura regula: regula lui "simplu". E simpla prin ea insasi, e simplu de facut si e simplu de mincat.
Ce poate fi mai grozav decit asta ?
