    Made this recipe just as written and it was fabulous! It satisfied my carb craving and it didn't even seem like I was eating kohlrabi. One of my new favorite recipes!

    The sauce in this recipe is really good. I'm not the biggest fan of kohlrabi, but we received two from our CSA share and this was a delicious way to use them. My two year old loved it.

    Lorraine - this is my first experience with kohlrabi. Our local nursery was giving away kohlrabi plants at the end of the season. WOW, it's now my new favorite vegetable. Great, tasty recipe. Thanks for sharing!! Tamara in Montrose, Colorado
