Kohlrabi Patties with Onion
(Adapted from Rodale's Basic Natural Foods Cookbook, Edited by Charles Gerras)
Trim ends, peel, and shred 6 medium kohlrabi. Place the them into a pot and fill with water to cover. Bring to a boil, then turn down to simmer. Place a lid on top and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Drain the kohlrabi.
Place the drained kohlrabi back into the pot and add one small chopped garden onion (or organic onion), 3-4 Tbsp. of whole wheat flour, 1 farm fresh/organic egg, and black pepper (taste and adjust to your liking). Stir.
Melt organic butter into a skillet and drop sections of the mix to make patties about 2-2 1/2 inches wide. Anything larger than 3 inches will be more difficult to flip. Brown the patties on each side until golden brown and crisp. Serve while hot.
Note: If mix has cooled enough you can make patties with your hand prior to placing them into the skillet.
We've made squash patties a few years ago, now it's kohlrabi patties. Yum!
