If you’ve been to the market the past couple of weeks, you most likely noticed a peculiar knobby purple or green looking vegetable. This veggie, known as kohlrabi, is super versatile with a taste similar to broccoli stems or cabbage!

Rinse the cucumber and pat dry. Trim off both ends then shred cucumber using a grater. Lay cucumber shreds on a paper towel at the bottom of a colander. Set colander in the sink or over a bowl to let the cucumber shreds strain. Let sit for one hour. Take the ends of the paper towel(s) with the cucumber shreds in the center and twist and squeeze tightly to remove any excess moisture.
In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, drained cucumber shreds, olive oil, red wine vinegar, and crushed garlic. Stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir again. Cover and chill for four hours, or ideally overnight.
Pre-heat oven to 400 F. Rinse the kohlrabi and pat dry. Trim off the tough ends. Slice the bulb in half, then slice each half into ½” size fries.
Place raw kohlrabi on a large rimmed baking sheet (I lined mine with a silicone mat). Drizzle olive oil over the fries and season generously with salt and pepper. Toss to coat then spread evenly in a single layer across the baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the fries can be pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and scoop onto a serving platter. Serve warm with tzatziki.
