I have to confess: I have never eaten or cooked kohlrabi. It's an unfortunate oversight; it's been on my to-try list for months and months. Somehow I just don't pick it up.
But this super-easy recipe from Gourmet might nudge me just far enough to try it. Pairing something new (kohlrabi) with something pleasantly familiar (butternut squash) is a good way to ease into new territory.
This recipe only calls for squash, kohlrabi, olive oil, salt and pepper, and thyme. Doesn't get much simpler than that!
