Oh I have been so excited to post this recipe! Kohlrabi is this funky root that I received in my CSA Share and I had no idea what this alien looking root was all about. So I did some thinking and came up with these Kohlrabi Krisps. An awesome thing about Kohlrabi is that it lasts a long time in your fridge. I went on vacation for 2 weeks and when I returned, these were still perfectly firm and ready to be eaten. I heard you could bake or fry these like potato chips and I knew I had to try it since I am a sucker for a good homemade potato chip. Plus these are much healthier and make a great snack!

One of my favorite things about the CSA is getting to try new fruits and vegetables that you can’t find at your typical grocery store. Kohlrabi is one of those things, and to be honest if I saw this is the grocery store I would have no idea what it was or how to eat it. So this my friends is a delicious way to eat this funky root…

Start by cutting off the extra “limbs” to this root and peel it with a vegetable peeler.

Put coconut oil in pan and heat on medium-high heat and then add the kohlrabi. I did these in sections so I could flip them. If you put them all in the pan at once, you might steam them and loose the crunchyness (the best part). You could also bake these in the oven if you toss them with oil and then bake, but I wanted a crispy chip so I decided to “fry” them on the stove.

By the way, I love this coconut oil, Carrington Farms Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 54 Ounce and I order it through Amazon every other month on subscribe and save. This is a really good price and lasts us about 2-3 months.

Cook over medium-high heat and flip once the bottom side is golden brown and do the same to the other side.

Remove from heat and put on a paper towel to absorb some of the oil. While they are still glistening, sprinkle with salt & pepper and garlic powder. You could also add whatever seasoning you’d like. Steve, being from Maryland and all suggested Old Bay. Shocker! (He puts old bay on everything…seriously everything!)
