Serves 6 to 8
-4 med. kohlrabi bulbs
-3 c. shredded green cabbage
-1/4 c. dried cherries
-1/4 c. sunflower seeds
-1/4 c. coarsely chopped fresh dill
-1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
-3 T. pure maple syrup
-Zest of 1 lemon
-Juice of 2 lemons
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1/4 t. kosher salt
-1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
Using a sharp knife, remove the long stems and greens from the kohlrabi. Using a peeler, trim away the thick green skin until you reach the light green to white part that is free of tough fibers.
Shred on the medium holes of a box grater or in a food processor fitted with the shredder disk.
Combine the kohlrabi, cabbage, cherries, sunflower seeds, and dill in a large serving bowl.
In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the olive oil, maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Shake to thoroughly combine.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat well. Let sit for about 20 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
-1 large kohlrabi (or 1-2 small), cubed

-6 T. unsalted butter
-1 c. of whole milk or more if needed
-1 small onion, chopped
-2 cloves of roasted garlic

Place water in a stock pot.
Peel Kohlrabi and potatoes and cut into cubes. Lightly salt the water. Add kohlrabi and potatoes to the pot and boil. Once fork tender, remove from heat and drain the water. Cover pot and let it sit for 5 minutes allowing excess moisture to be absorbed by the vegetables. Add 4 tbsp of butter and cover pot.
In the meantime, add the 2 tbsp of unsalted butter to a saucepan and saute the onion until golden. Add the roasted garlic to the onion and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Set aside.
In a small pot bring the milk to a boil. Remove from heat.
In a high speed blender, add all ingredients except milk. Cover and puree. Add milk as needed to achieve your desired consistency.

-¼ t. kosher salt
-¼ t. cayenne
-½ cup grapeseed or vegetable oil (enough for ¼-inch depth in a large skillet)
-¼ cup plain yogurt
-¼ t. kosher salt
-Green onions (for garnish)
Cut the leaves off of the kohlrabi, and peel the bulb. Peel the carrot. Shred the vegetables in a food processor (quick and easy!) or using a grater (slow method).
Squeeze the shredded vegetables in a tea cloth (or with your hands) to remove moisture, then add to a bowl with 1 egg, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, ¼ teaspoon cayenne, and mix to combine.
Place ½ cup oil in a large skillet (enough for ¼-inch depth). Heat the oil over medium high heat, then place balls of the fritter mixture into the oil. Fry on one side until browned, then fry on the other side. Remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain excess oil.
In a small bowl, mix ½ avocado, ¼ cup plain yogurt, juice from ½ lemon, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt to make the sauce (or blend together in a food processor).
Serve fritters with avocado cream sauce and sliced green onions, if desired. Best if eaten shortly after making as they don’t save well. Also, the avocado cream sauce will become brown after exposure to air. Make sure to cover the surface with plastic wrap if storing.
