Kohlrabi Slaw with cherries

One of the cool things about using a CSA provider is getting “surprise” veggies you have not cooked previously.  A few weeks ago, Kohlrabi showed up in our box.  Luckily, she sent this recipe along with them.  Kohlrabi are part of the cabbage family, and have an odd sputnik look to them.  (OK, that dated me…)  Here’s a recipe that not only uses them, but is DELICIOUS!  Want a twist on coleslaw?  Here it is, but first, a rundown of the benefits of eating Kohlrabi.  Low in fat, high in fiber, potassium, and a ton of Vitamin C, and they are in season now! This recipe is low in net carbs (watch out for the dried cherries, if you eat a lot, it will increase the carbs, and they are yummy!)   Kohlrabi Cabbage Cherry Slaw with Maple Lemon Dressing Ingredients: 1 T coconut or avocado oil ¼ cup sunflower seeds 2 medium bulbs Kohlrabi 2 cups shredded green cabbage 1/8 cup dried cherries, I used dried tart cherries small fistful of coarsely chopped fresh …

Pros:  amazingly low carb (3 net carbs!), high protein (7g) and easy to make, especially for non-bakers! Cons:  not “tall” like sandwich bread, and denser, and less flavor that flour based bread Low Carb Grain Free Sandwich Bread 2 cups + 2 T blanched almond flour (we use Honeyville) ½ cup coconut flour 1 …
