We felt uninspired as we shopped at Oakland's 9th Street Farmer's Market on Friday, shivering against the sheets of rain and high winds. But as we chatted with a jacketless worker from Watsonville who hopped about to stay warm, piles of green kohlrabi caught our eye. We've never cooked with this vegetable, so we decided to give it a try.
