Our Grow Pro Lead, Beka Rich, was beyond excited when our carrots, garlic, and kohlrabi in the Asian Greens Plant Collection were ready to harvest after 2 months patiently tending the garden. Beka had just received Gulf shrimp from her parents in Florida and knew this pairing was harvest celebration-worthy.
You’ll fall in love with how easy it is to create your own healthy stir fry flavors once you’ve learned about the technique of sauteeing in waves so that all the veggies and flavors are highlighted. You’ll wonder why you haven’t tried exploring more flavors sooner.
If this is your first time having kohlrabi, make sure to try some raw after you’ve peeled and diced the globe! It has a wonderful sweet, crisp flavor somewhere between a tastier broccoli stem and jicama or an apple. Kohlrabi can be enjoyed raw or cooked.
