Quick Tips : Kohlrabi – yes you need to peel it – eat it raw, slaw, salad, stir fry, boil ……and you can also use the leaves, cook as you would other greens; New – asian greens – mild – salad, stir fry, saute; Garlic Scapes – use as you would garlic – excellent addition to stir fry, saute, or pesto; Snap pea – remove stem, pull down string, whole pod is edible. Peas cook quickly- do not over cook; Basil -won’t last long- excellent to chiffon ribbon cut to add to anything, great on pizza, fantastic with summer squash, or pesto addition. If not using quickly chop by hand or food processor, coat with a little oil just to stick together and freeze in small balls/ice cubes to toss in dishes later.
