Yield: 6 Servings
|6 mediums||Kohlrabi bulbs, peeled|
|1 large||Sweet onion, chopped|
|1 tablespoon||Sunflower oil|
|1 tablespoon||Arrowroot powder|
|2 tablespoons||Cold water|
|\N \N||Salt & pepper|
|\N \N||Parsley sprigs, to garnish|
Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan. Immerse kohlrabies & boil until they are tender-crisp when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Drain & cool.
Trim ¼" from the root end of the kohlrabies. Scoop out pulp from the opposite end leaving ¼" thick shells. Dice the pulp & set aside. Place shells in a lightly oiled baking dish.
Preheat oven to 350F. In a separate bowl, toss diced pulp, onion, cinnamon, oil & breadcrumbs. Press mixture into shells.
Bake uncovered until the onions are limp & caramelized, about 20 minutes.
Transfer to a warmed serving platter & keep warm. Reserve the liquid.
In a separate bowl, mix the arrowroot with the water, stirring until completely dissolved. Set aside. Pour reserved liquid into a small saucepan & bring to a boil. Remove from the heat & slowly add the arrowroot, stirring constantly. Add more water as may be necessary so that you have a sauce like consistency. Season.
Spoon sauce around the the stuffed kohlrabies, garnish with parsley & serve immediately.
