Kohlrabi! Squash! Grapefruit!

Plenty of new items in today's boxes--you can definitely tell the seasons are changing. Looking around for recipe ideas, I found this one for kohlrabi-squash empanadas--hey, that's two of the box ingredients right there!

Thanks for the info on Kohlrabi! I never would have guessed and have never seen it or eaten it before. What a great adventure our CSA is! Here's another link to help explore Kohlrabi.

I posted some links to kohlrabi recipes in

In the end, we steamed ours in the microwave with a little bit of water until they were tender crisp (not quite as done as beets). Then I diced them and put them on salads. They were slightly crisp, slightly sweet, and very delish.

I shredded ours. We ate some of the shredded kohlrabi on pizza (it was good! but truth be told, I would probably eat shredded sneakers in pizza format). The rest we put on sandwiches like slaw.
