Kohlrabi Fritters

Thanks to Roxanne and Kelsi for expanding our Kohlrabi possibilities beyond slaw. Fritters! Who knew?


Standard Kohlrabi Fritters

Julienned Kohlrabi
Egg
Breadcrumbs

Mix and fry in pan.

Roxanne's version:

I put the greens, which I wilted on the stovetop, between a fritter and a slice of wheat bread! It was awesome. Ate it for breakfast.


Curried Carrot Kohlrabi Fritters

1 kohlrabi bulb, peeled
1 large carrot, peeled

2 green onions, whites and greens thinly sliced
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon yellow curry powder
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
About 1⁄2 cup butter

1. Using the large holes ina  box grater, grate kohlrabi. Gather with dish towel and squeeze to remove excess liquid. Repeat process with grated carrot (Warning: carrot may stain dish towel, paper towel alternative method)

2. Mix carrot, kohlrabi, sliced onion, egg, salt, pepper, flour and baking powder and combine thoroughly.

3. Heat butter in large heavy bottomed skillet. Scoop 1/4 C. portions, flatten and fry until golden, 3 min. each side.

4. Remove to cooling rack/plate lined with towels to absorb excess oil. Top with yogurt-herb sauce (below). or just with plain greek yogurt, Sriracha, sour cream, etc 

For Topping

1/2 C. Greek Yogurt
2 TBS Sour cream
1 TBS chopped Dill
1 TBS chopped Parsley
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
salt, pepper

Mix all ingredients, top fritters, and say Mmmm.
