Oh man, where do I even BEGIN with dinner tonight? I can take absolutely no credit for what went on in the kitchen. I came home from pilates and it took me several minutes to put together all the things my boyfriend had going on. So let's get started:
kohlrabi from our CSA this week, and neither my boyfriend or I had ever had it before. We read that kohlrabi can be enjoyed simply roasted with olive oil and salt, and we figured this would be the perfect way to experience it for the first time - with such a simple preparation, we would really get to taste it.
...and I am in love. I have read several different attempts to describe the flavor of kohlrabi, and these always involve some kind of combination of other veggies. For me kohlrabi is a combination of parsnip and brussel sprouts, which just happen to be two of my favorites. I'm very excited, because every place I read about kohlrabi suggests different kinds of preparations ranging from raw to steamed to barbecued. Given how much I loved the taste, it is exciting that it is also so versatile. I can't wait to get it again so we can try something different!
The beer batter was SO GOOD! Do you want the recipe? Sure thing.
- 1 can of beer
- 1 and 1/2 cups of flour
- and...that's it!
Okay, so my boyfriend also added smoked paprika, but that contributed to flavor and had nothing to do with how delightfully crispy and airy that batter was. I swear, these onion rings were PERFECT.
this wikipedia page, and put whatever of those ingredients we had into a bowl. Do I need to keep saying that everything he makes comes out fantastically?
