Oven Roasted Kohlrabi

So the other day I was at the farmer’s market and I saw a vegetable that I had never used before.  Kohlrabi.  It looked like an alien head.  So naturally, I wanted to try it.  It’s similar to a turnip and comes from the cabbage family.   I would compare it to the texture and taste of broccoli stems.   Because it looked like an alien head, and because the lady told me to, I peeled it, cut it into sticks and roasted it in the oven.  It was a perfect vegetable side dish, healthy and delicious!

Here’s what the alien head looks like.
