This kohlrabi recipe, akaKohlrabi mit Schinken, is a great way to use up leftover ham and create a delicious, traditional German meal. Kohlrabi is a strange looking vegetable and tastes like a combination of radish and broccoli stems. For the meat in this recipe, use leftover ham or cooked sausage (kielbasa would be nice) - just dice it in the same size you dice the kohlrabi.
I know this looks like oven-roasted potatoes, but it's not! If you've never tried kohlrabi, you're in for a treat.
When you buy the kohlrabi, choose small young ones. These will have the best flavor. Kohlrabi belongs to the cabbage family and it's flavor can be quite intense.
You can choose either the green or the purple variety. Both can be eaten raw. Peeled and sliced, kohlrabi makes a great addition to a salad tray that has people coming back for more and not knowing what they are eating - they only know it tastes great, similar to broccoli stems.
