Grilled kohlrabi – metabolic balance Monday Recipe

On Facebook, it was suggested that we try using Kohlrabi as a bread.  I liked this idea so over the weekend, I took a few kohlrabis and experimented with them to see if they would work as a bread substitute.

Below is what raw kohlrabi looks like as a whole vegetable and as raw slices.

The kohlrabi has a very mild taste and is crispy like a radish.  I really liked  eating the slices raw but could not see that working to replace bread so I decided to season and grill the pieces.

The grilled kohlrabi tasted wonderful. I prepared a hummus to add on top but you could also try using two pieces of kohlrabi to make a small sandwich.

While I had the grill on, I grilled cauliflower slices but was not happy with the slices as a bread substitute.  The cauliflower tasted great but the florets fell off when I tried to move them around on the plate.
