Roasted Kohlrabi with Pumpkin Seeds (Vegan)

Sharon Palmer

Have you ever seen a knobby green-white root vegetable with spiky tentacles resembling a dragon and wondered what it was? Well, that, my friend, is kohlrabi. This super-nutritious veggie is part of the cruciferous family, along with cabbage, cauliflower, and kale. Thus, it’s linked with cancer protection. The bulb is delicious in roasted veggies, like this recipe. I used purple kohlrabi I found at my farmers market, but you can easily use the white-green variety. Simply chop it up and toss it with cumin seeds, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, and pumpkin seeds and roast it until it’s crispy good.

Step-By-Step Guide:

Start with three large kohlrabi bulbs.
Scrub and trim each bulb.
Slice into small chunks.
Toss with garlic, cumin seeds, pumpkin seeds, olive oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper, if desired.
Roast at 375F until golden brown.
Enjoy!
