Farmers market shopping, kohlrabi and broad beans

All this gorgeous, fresh, organic produce for $27.50

My time at the Farmers Markets are going swimmingly. This weeks I went back for some more Kohlrabi.

Remember these cute little numbers:

Whoops!! I mean these:


Well, I made an amazing salad inspired from this recipe from Nadine Abensur. I changed a few things around and this is what resulted:

It was so good, I bought more Kohlrabi and have just made another version. I very much enjoyed the nori/kohlrabi combination. Kohlrabi’s texture is not too dissimilar to green apples – giving a pleasant crunch and new texture for a salad. The flavour is mildly ‘green’ with a hint of pepperiness.

This is the second Kohlrabi salad:

You’ll notice I bought some broad beans which are in season. I can’t believe that there was a time I actually disliked broadies (thanks mum for making me eat them boiled with their leathery skin on). I made this Quinoa and Broad Bean Salad, adapted from Matt Stone’s recipe on the cover of September’s Gourmet Traveller.

Penzo and I decided to take a break from the breakky burgers (to spread our business around) and we breakfasted on home made Borek; Eggplant/Capsicum and Spinach/Feta.

Word on the street is that I will be doing a cooking demo at the Melbourne Showgrounds Farmers Market during December. Will keep you posted as details are finalised.
