Food Porn: Creamy Sauteed Kohlrabi

I had some kohlrabi in the fridge that I needed to use up (I had originally bought it to make a stir fry, but ended up not making the stir fry), and was in a veggie mood for lunch today, so I whipped up a really simple lunch dish: sauteed kohlrabi with cream sauce.

This is one of those dishes I throw together with no real recipe, but it’s really easy – slice about 4-5 bulbs of kohlrabi thin (make sure you peel them first), chiffonade a handful of the greens, and saute it in 1-2 tbsp butter (amount depends on how much kohlrabi you have) until it’s tender-crisp (about 5 minutes). Near the end throw in about 1 1/2 tbsp flour, salt and pepper to taste, and let it brown a minute or two more. Add in enough cream (1-2 tbsp) to hold it all together, and make it creamy, but not saucy.
