Kohlrabi & Ham Gratin

If you haven’t tried kohlrabi, which tastes like a mild, sweet turnip, this gratin is an excellent place to start—after all, what doesn’t taste good with cheese sauce on it? Kohlrabi that are less than 3 inches in diameter will give you the most tender results.

Serves 6

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 90 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds kohlrabi, (5-6 medium), trimmed, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 1/3 cups low-fat milk, divided
  • 3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced smoked ham, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black or white pepper
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup fresh breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Tip)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Put a large pot of water on to boil. Coat a 1 1/2-quart gratin dish or similar-size shallow baking dish with cooking spray.

Step 2

Cook kohlrabi in the boiling water until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.

Step 3

Heat 1 cup milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Whisk flour and the remaining 1/3 cup milk in a small bowl to make a smooth paste; stir into the hot milk and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in ham and cheese. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Step 4

Distribute the cooked kohlrabi in the prepared dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the top, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

Step 5

Bake the gratin until bubbling and golden on top, 30 to 40 minutes.
