Sweet Potato and Kohlrabi Fritters with Yogurt-Tahini Sauce is a farmer’s market’s dream recipe! The delicious unique flavour of kohlrabi shines through and the yogurt-tahini sauce adds a delicious salty smoky flavour!
I will sound extremely food-nerdy for this (fortunately this is a safe place for that) but I went to my first organic farmer’s market on Saturday and it was SO great! If you follow me on Instagram you would’ve seen my post – and I’m so amazed that so many different kinds of creations grow in Jamaica! I mean, of course you’re probably thinking you are a tropical country but unfortunately only a small portion of our culture actually eats from what we grow. Nevertheless, there was quite a lot to choose from at this fabulous farmer’s market, including vegan chocolate cake (cue me buying IMMEDIATELY), a tomato jam that Mr. Bakes and I SOMEHOW managed to finish between Saturday afternoon and as at the time I am writing this (Sunday night) – it was that good, a creamy cashew butter and an incredibly delicious pepper spread that we are certain contains some sort of pickled vegetable that we need need need to get on its own. I also picked up endless amounts of green blends – by endless I mean finishing by Wednesday because my brain has gone plant crazy – with mixtures of mustard greens, kale, and arugula and of course, tons and tons of straight kale.
My eyes lit up when I saw the organic kale. Which I then ate half for dinner the same night. I would like to point out that as long as I don’t douse this in chocolate this is a pretty healthy obsession to have!
