Kohlrabi, Red Potatoes and Garlic Scape Bake

Don’t be snobby, try kohlrabi… LOL. Kohlrabi, red potatoes and garlic scapes baked with a bit of parmesan. Each week I come home with so many yummy veggies from a local farm where we purchased a CSA share. If you don’t know what that is it is basically where you pay, up front, a set amount of money, depending on what size you determine is right for your family, and then you get to pick up fresh veggies from usually June until about the beginning of November. This week we got a vegetable I had never heard of before… the kohlrabi, which is a member of the cabbage family. I also was able to try garlic scapes, which are the tops of the garlic bulbs. I’m 47 and there are vegetables I’ve never tried, let alone even heard of. After peeling the kohlrabi (1 the size of an onion) and the red potatoes (6) and cutting up the scapes (about 1/2 cup), I threw them into a pot of boiling water for about 15 minutes. After draining I mashed them using a handheld masher and mixed in sea salt, pepper and onion powder. Put into an oven safe dish and top with some shredded parmesan and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, and garnish with parsley when done. It is an awesome way to have mashed potatoes. Enjoy  🙂
