Stir-fried kohlrabi

This is inspired by World Vegetarian by Madhur Jaffrey. Love this cookbook. As usual, I adjusted it based on what I had.

This week at the CSA pickup, I saw a trade basket FILLED with kohlrabi. Usually it's leeks, radishes, or fennel. But I guess there wasn't any of that this week. I couldn't conceive of it - I love kohlrabi. Thought about swapping something to get extra...but I loved everything.

Then I realized...this week was the first week of the summer season. Soo...a bunch of newbies to the farm, who look at kohlrabi and say "huh?"

Now I've steamed it, sauteed it, stir-fried it, put it in potato salad, eaten it raw...this was the best recipe ever. No pic, because we ate it all up, all three of us.

Stir-fried kohlrabi
2 medium kohlrabi, about 10 oz: $1.50 (just guessing, I've never actually paid for the stuff direct)
1 T. canola oil: 0.04
1 clove garlic, pressed: 0.05
1 tsp sesame oil (dark): 0.10
1 tsp soy sauce: 0.05
salt and pepper to taste
pinch red pepper flakes
Total: $1.74 for three servings (smallish ones at that).

Cut the ends off the kohlrabi and peel. Slice into 1/8 to 1/4 inch slices. Stack and cut again into 1/8th to 1/4 inch matchsticks. Set aside.

Heat canola oil in nonstick skillet on medium high. Add red pepper flake and stir one minute. Add garlic and saute 10 sec, add kohlrabi and stir immediately. Add S&P, reduce heat to medium low, and cook, stirring regularly, for 10 min.

Add sesame oil and soy sauce and stir to combine.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love so many of the recipes you have on here so I will be stopping by often. I've heard only good things about this cookbook and recently requested it to be sent from NY's central library to my local one. Hopefully I will be perusing it soon. I've never had kohlrabi but hope to encounter it someday. When I do, I'll know who to turn to for some inspiration!

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D
