Spudnik or dinner?

Kohlrabi on the left and Bok Choy on the top right.

Our CSA has started and we are very excited. We took part in a CSA-Community Supported Agriculture share last year as well and we learned how to prepare certain vegetables we had never even heard of before! We pay a set fee in the winter to the farm and then June thru Oct we pick up our weekly share at the local farmers market.

This year our share started off with Bok Choy, Kohlrabi, white radishes, red radishes, spring garlic, two different kinds of head lettuce, broccoli, beets and Swiss Chard. I had ideas on how to prepare everything we brought home (we are sharing with another family-we could never eat what we get each week before it went bad), but had NO idea what to do with the Kohlrabi. Thank goodness for the internet!

I had a few left over potatoes and decided to just roast them together with the Kohlrabi - added some of the spring garlic from our share, olive oil, salt and pepper and it was wonderful!
I got the idea over at A Veggie Venture.


  1. We did the CSA by ourselves, and are having a really hard time keeping up with all of the veggies, particularly all of the salad greens this week! We had to give a bag of mixed greens away because even if we ate salads at every meal, we couldn't eat them all! LOVE it though!

  2. Seriously. I picked up our CSA stuff last night, and it looks like a rainforest is growing in my fridge. How the heck are we going to eat:
    1 bunch sweet salad turnip
    1 head escarole
    1 head red lettuce
    1 head romaine lettuce
    1 bunch kale
    1 bunch Swiss Chard
    1 bunch parsley
    1 bunch cilantro
    1 pint snow peas
    2 zucchini
    4 pints of blueberries in ONE WEEK??? I am not a rabbit. I think this is going to work out better when there is a little more variety and not an entire garden of leafy greens!
