sketch of Bob above the Creamed Kohlrabi And Carrots recipe.


2 c. sliced, peeled kohlrabi
4 medium carrots, bias sliced
1 t. instant chicken bouillon
2 T. butter or margarine
2 T. flour
1/4 c. half & half (or whole milk if you prefer)
1 T. lemon juice
pinch of salt

Cook kohlrabi and carrots separately in boiling water til tender. Drain and reserve 2/3 c. liquid from carrots and 1/3 c. liquid from kohlrabi. Combine both liquids and add bouillon; stir to dissolve. Melt butter in saucepan, add flour to make a smooth paste then add reserved liquid. Cook and stir til thickened; boil 1 minute. Add cream (or milk), lemon juice and salt; stir and pour over cooked vegetables. The mixture may be put into a casserole dish and sprinkled with buttered breadcrumbs; then put into a 350° oven just til the crumbs are lightly browned. Or the creamed veggies may be just served right from the saucepan. Either way is delicious!
