Quick Kohlrabi Saag

So when Tony got me Kohlrabi and Cebollitas this past weekend, I used the bulbs in a Cebollitas Asadas. Now I'm not one to waste any kind of veggies, especially not greens, so as a side, I made a Quick Saag (wilted greens) with the tops. And made Kohlrabi Greens my New Veggie #65

Kohlrabi (Kadam ka) Saag
Prep Time: 10 min

Ingredients (2 servings):
  1. 1-2 cups Kohlrabi Greens, chopped coarsely
  2. 8-10 Scallion Stems or 1 medium onion (chopped coarsely, optional)
  3. 2 tsp Minced Garlic
  4. 1/4 cup Crushed Tomatoes (canned)
  5. Salt and Pepper, to taste
Line a skillet with water and add garlic. Once the garlic begins to caramelize, add crushed tomatoes and mix well. Then add greens, sprinkle salt and mix everything together. Cover and let cook for 5 minutes. Then uncover and mix well. Allow all the water to evaporate. Garnish with freshly cracked black pepper and serve warm on freshly toasted multi-grain bread. Umm Umm Good!! 

Quick Kohlrabi Saag
My Assessment: The green were sweet and crunchy and the tomatoes added just the right touch of sweet and acidic flavors. This is my favorite way of eating greens of all types - lightly wilted, with lots of garlic :)
