Fresh hazelnuts – image source http://www.joclarkcookingetc.com/
This recipe was an accidental discovery that went through two stages and is now one of my favourite things to eat.
First of all, when I had my friend Zoe round for supper, I asked her to peel and cut up a kohlrabi into apple-like chunks to have with a dip. She went onto autopilot however and cubed it instead, which turned out to be a great advantage. I mixed the kohlrabi chunks with thick Greek yogurt and a good pinch of salt. I thought about adding in lemon juice but didn’t. We ate it with spelt crackers as a snack. It was really good.
Then, on a visit to the excellent Turkish supermarket on Camberwell New Road I bought a bag of fresh hazelnuts (AKA cobnuts) thinking they would go well with kohlrabi.
I made the salad again, with fresh hazelnuts mixed in – and it was even better.
