Kohlrabi Ham Bake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 4 kohlrabi, peeled and diced
  • 8 ounces thick ham, diced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of mace (can substitute ground nutmeg)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

1 Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large skillet, melt the butter on medium heat. Add the diced kohlrabi and gently cook for 8 to 10 minutes.

2 Beat the egg yolk, and whisk in the heavy cream, flour, mace, salt and pepper until well combined.

3 Place half of the cooked kohlrabi on the bottom of an oven-proof casserole dish. Layer on the diced ham and parsley. Top with the remaining kohlrabi. Pour the sauce ingredients over the kohlrabi and ham.

4 Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Serve immediately.

Serves 4.

I will definitely try this one out lol
Share your favorite recipe , kohlrabi is so little known...it's a pity,because this vegetable has an alkaline reaction and is high in vitamin C and A , iron,calcium etc.
Thanks
