Kohlrabi Fries

{Kohlrabi Fries dipped in chili aioli}
{Kohlrabi is also known as a German Stout which mainly grows in Europe. This stem vegetable belongs to the cabbage, cauliflower, and turnip family. Mildly sweet, kohlrabi is high in dietary fiber, and plenty of vitamins.} 
 {1. Cut off the top and bottom of the Kohlrabi. With a peeler, gently peel of the skin. Be sure to have a good grip. }
{2. After removing the skin cut the kohlrabi in half.
Then slice medium size sticks - if you feel 
          they are to large,cut the sticks in half again.}                
{ 3. Line the kohlrabi sticks in a large glass pyrex 
and sprinkle olive oil, chili powder, garlic salt, 
and kosher salt. Be very generous!}
{4. Mix the kohlrabi gently with your hands and even out. 
Set your oven on baking mode at 350. 
Pop the kohlrabi in for a good twenty minutes. 
Then, put the oven on broil and let them evenly crisp!}
{In a bowl whisk together mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic salt, chili powder, smoked paprika, and Kosher salt. this is a great aioli! * For every two tablespoons of mayonnaise,
 add one tablespoon of lime juice.}
  
One day after a long work out, I decided I was going to whip together a fun dinner. My sister and I ran down to the grocery store and checked out this funny looking kohlrabi! We decided to broil it with some salt- It was delicious. Full of vitamins and dietary fiber, kohlrabi is a great healthy-alternative to french fries and will fill you up quickly! So those of you working on tightening your booty for the summer, and want french fries- make these succulent and delicious kohlrabi fries instead!
