Why don’t I eat kohlrabi more often?
It’s so damn good. And these were just grocery store kohlrabi, no fancy farmers’ market stuff. On Sunday we had planned to have a vegetable curry as we’re trying to cut back on so many meat-based meals. We were weak though and ended up ordering from Peking Garden. The next day I swore we would make the damn curry. I cut up vegetables ahead of time while Ernie and Owen put lights on the tree in the front yard. When I say curry, I actually mean, ‘vaguely curryish.” I cooked the vegetables in a bit of olive oil and once they had just a touch of browning I added in spices. Given that I was feeling less than enthusiastic about cooking, it was merely my beloved Penzey’s sweet curry powder, some cumin and salt and pepper. Oh, and red pepper flakes. Normally I would have added a few more thing….some coriander, some turmeric, but eh. Once I could smell the spices I added a can of coconut milk and let the whole thing simmer for a bit. Added a little spinach at the end and served it on brown Jasmine rice. It tasted SO good. I swear the best part, though, was the kohlrabi.
I think I’m just about done with my Christmas shopping. Just a few more things. My plan to spend a lot less money this year? Mmmmmm. Not so much. Oh well. I still need to get stocking gifts. Every year I say I’m not doing stocking this year but somehow they always wear me down. Well, Owen does. Suggestions for cheap stocking presents are welcome.
