Kohlrabi Potato Mash

Blooms and SpoonsIf you still happen to have kohlrabi in cold storage or – as I have – a few packages remaining in the freezer, why not whip up this quick mash for a hot side dish at suppertime? 



Kohlrabi-Potato Mash

4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced into large chunks

1 medium fresh kohlrabi, peeled and sliced into large chunks, or 1 to 1 1/2 cups frozen kohlrabi

Place vegetables into a large saucepan and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt. Bring veggies to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes and kohlrabi are tender. Remove the vegetables from the stove top and drain off the water (reserve the cooking liquid for later use in a soup). 

Mash the potatoes and kohlrabi together. Add a dollop of butter and a splash of milk (I’m not listing measurements because it depends on individual taste or dietary needs). Some people may wish to add sour cream in place of the milk. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and – if you like – some grated fresh Parmesan cheese.
