Sauteed Kohlrabi Greens

Remove leaves from stems and tear the leaves into bite size pieces. Simmer for about 5 minutes in salted water this will help take away any bitter notes in the greens. Drain and set aside. Chop a medium onion and mince two cloves of garlic. Sauté the garlic and onion together in a tablespoon of olive oil till just golden. The original recipe I found called for ham and bacon chopped up and added to the onion mixture. Next add the drained greens. Season with salt, pepper some red pepper flakes. Simmer – you can put this in a crockpot and forget about it for a while. This dish reminds of a greasy greens recipe one might find in southern style home cooking.

Variations:

You can sub any hearty green here – cabbage, kale, collards, turnips, you get the idea

Instead of ham and bacon use a smoked kielbasa, chorizo whatever sausage you prefer.
