Kohlrabi Carrot Fritters with Avocado Cream

Posted

Kohlrabi is one of those wonderful “CSA mystery veggies” to many new CSA members and a favorite of many long time CSA members. Remove the fronds before storing and it will last quite a while wrapped tightly in the fridge. Don’t forget to save the fronds to chop up and add to soup, a salad or to saute with other greens!

Ingredients

 

  • 2 kohlrabi
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed or vegetable oil (enough for ¼-inch depth in a large skillet)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Chopped scallions or garnish
Directions

1) Cut the leaves off the kohlrabi and peel the bulb. Peel 1 carrot. Shred the vegetables in a food processor, or by hand using a grater. Squeeze the shredded vegetables in a tea cloth (or with your hands) to remove moisture, then add to a medium bowl with 1 egg, ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and ¼ teaspoon cayenne. Mix to combine.
2) Place ½ cup oil in a large skillet (enough for ¼-inch depth). Heat the oil over medium high heat, then place small patties of the fritter mixture into the oil. Fry on one side until browned, then fry on the other side. Remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain excess oil.
3) In a small bowl, mix ½ avocado, ¼ cup plain yogurt, juice from ½ lemon, and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt to make the avocado cream (or blend the ingredients together in a food processor).
4) Serve fritters with avocado cream and sliced green onions.
