Kohlrabi is a cruciferous vegetable, but Tel Aviv chef Asaf Doktor’s roasted version tastes inexplicably—yet deliciously—like an unctuous artichoke heart. Slideshow: More Roasted Vegetable Recipes
Preheat the oven to 450°. On a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle the kohlrabi with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 1 1/2 hours, until charred on the outside and tender within. Let cool slightly, then peel.
Arrange the kohlrabi on a platter. Generously drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with the feta, jalapeños, thyme and sesame seeds and serve.
First ate this at Asaf Doktor’s Tel Aviv restaurant. Original and delicious! A real treat.
Earthy, mildly sweet, tang from the feta, heat from the pepper, nutty....super yummy!
