THE MUTATED LOOKING FARMERS MARKET VEGETABLES

ARE YOU SURE WE CAN EAT THESE WEIRD LOOKING VEGETABLES?

My idea of fresh and healthy vegetables have always been that of juicy tomatoes, crunchy greenish vegetables, jewel-toned eggplants, fragrant basil and honey sweet yellow corn. When I saw a bunch of weird looking leafy green with names that I can’t even pronounced the question that I had was this “Are you sure we can eat this thing?”

Curiosity does wonder as I explore into the unknown and put my taste buds to the challenge.

Read through this and share your experience with these vegetables

Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi
It’s a pale green bulb that comes into season in October, with tough-looking leaves sprouting from the top. But its appearance is deceiving. The way to process these vegetable is to peeling it and thinly slicing it. It’s a refreshing vegetable that can be added to a salad and it’s also good just slightly poached in a little bit of salt and some butter.

Romanesco Cauliflower

Romanesco

A strange-looking, neon green fall vegetable that is actually a cauliflower.

For a vegan recipe roast it tomato, black pepper and a little bit of rosemary the combination of juicy tomato, black pepper, rosemary, will give it a rich full bodied taste and aroma that will satisfy the palates.

Bon Appetit to the weirdest looking vegetables.
