Kohlrabi, I have learned is very rich in Vitamin C and also contains good amounts of the B Vitamins. It is high in fiber and of course is fat and cholesterol free.
Rutabaga is a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. They are free of fat and cholesterol and are an excellent source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese.
From our garden I also harvested a bunch of brocolli, some carrots and a handful of snow peas. Here they are all chopped up. The dish I decided to make with all of these yummy veggies was a simple stir fry served over hot rice.
I decided to add chicken to my dish, so I also cut up 3 small chicken breasts, which I stir fried in about a Tb. of olive oil. Once my chicken was cooked through I added in my carrots, kohlrabi, and rutabaga, put a lid on my pan and let them steam until they were about halfway done. Then I threw in the broccoli and snow peas and allowed them to steam until tender. Then I added a can of water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, and baby corns and allowed them to heat through. Yum, doesn't it look delicious?
While my veggies where steaming I made my
sauce. Here is the recipe:
1/2 Cup Chicken Stock
1 Tb. Cornstarch
1 Tb. Oyster Sauce
1 Tb. Hoisin Sauce
2 Tb. Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Sugar
Whisk together and cook until thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in 1 tsp. of Sesame Oil. Now just stir your yummy sauce into your veggies.
The finished product. It was so delicious and I was so happy to have harvested the majority of the veggies from my garden. The kohlrabi and rutabaga where great additions to this dish. Enjoy!
