Roasted Kohlrabi with Pomegranate Paste

(Firinda Nar Eksili Alabas)

<br /> 
Roasted Kohlrabi with Pomegranate Paste
Fresh kohlrabi (cabbage turnip- I grilled 2 bulbs), trimmed the ends, peeled, diced
~1 tbsp Pomegranate paste
~2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


Place the kohlrabi in an earthenware plate. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil and pomegranate paste all over them.

Preheat the oven to 450 F (230 C). Place the earthenware plate on the middle rack and cook until the kohlrabi is tender. It takes app. 30-35 minutes. Stir occasionally like every 10-12 minutes. Before serve season with cumin and paprika.

Serve with grilled steak or chicken or seafood for a delicious summer side dish.

What is pomegranate paste called in Turkish? I've only seen the sweet/sour syrup.

Love all your recipes by the way.

Thank you:)
It is called nar eksisi in Turkish.

I've always posted my recipes in Turkish and in English on my blog and facebook at the same time.
There is a Turkish section on the right side of my blog, just click on it:)
