Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters

Posted on June 17, 2019

Today I made some Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters. We will get to that in a few paragraphs. Right now let’s talk about passion.

I have not been here in awhile because I have been busy. Changing jobs,growing Tripping Vittles one little step at a time. I have been searching for years, and it has always been here. What am I searching for I have asked myself?

Where have I been

Love, Peace, Happiness, Excitement, Adventure. All of those things come to mind. Recently I have tried a bunch of different things

Politics. I love politics, but it is not my passion. I am a great follower in this area but not a leader. Leaving the leading to others. Call me for a protest or a march or to man a booth but don’t ask me to organize or run for office. I am well read and can hold my own in discussions, but it is just not my Passion!

CrossFit. Yeah, I want to be healthy, and I have friends who are amazing at this. My body at this age and with all my knee issues is not cut out to be a CrossFit pro.

Those are just two of many things I have done over the last year searching for me. The funny thing is me has been here all along. I have even talked about it. I started working on me years ago with this blog. It began as a hobby but this is my passion.

This is my passion

It is not just Tripping Vittles though it is food in general. It’s talking to people and showing them how to cook and how to use the spices I have to make delicious food. Its sharing tastes from all over the world. It is talking about cooking and growing and feeling what we use to nourish our bodies.

It is about Love, the love we have for one another the love we have for our planet. The love that can only be expressed thru breaking bread with your fellow man.

My passion is about all things food and food related Sharing recipes, eating amazing meals, saving the planet so we can keep eating and growing the magic that is what we eat.

The Recipe Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters

This week I bought some Kohlrabi at the farmers market where I sell Tripping Vittles spices. People who sold it to me are a family of super nice folks GlasgowFamilyFarm In a future post I will talk about how important shopping local and supporting local farmers is. Today lets just talk about Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters.

Delicious Kohlrabi Fritters

An easy Kohlrabi Fritter that is delicious.

  • Author: trippingvittles
Scale

Ingredients

For Fritter

  • 2 medium-sized Kohlrabi cleaned and quartered
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 Red Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons Tripping Vittles Tuscany Bread Dipping Spice
  • 1/4 cup grated Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Mayonaise
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

For Sauce

1/4 Cup Mayonaise

!/4 Cup Sour Cream

1 Tablespoon Half and Half

1 tablespoon Tripping Vittles Tuscany Bread Dipping Spice.

 

Instructions

In a Small Food Processor, grind up stale bread for bread crumbs.  Remove to a mixing bowl add to the processor the kohlrabi and the red onion grind or grate up depending on the texture you like. Remove and add to bread crumbs. Add all other ingredients except butter and olive oil mix well.  Set to side

Heat butter and olive oil in a Cast Iron Pan once hot add your fritters cooking each side to a golden brown.

For the Sauce mix, all ingredients together at least a half hour before the meal let them sit in the fridge until you are ready to serve the fritters.

Notes

Serve on a plate topped with sauce and a little garlic scapes or green onion for color. This recipe makes 2-4 Fritters depending on the size you want your fritter to be.  I made two as a meal but they would make an awesome side dish to a steak in place of potato.

Right now you can only get the spices in Westerville at the Saturday Farmers Market but trust me when I say more is coming. I am, but one person and I try as hard as I can to do a little every few days.

Whiskey Wednesday: Bourbon Sour

Posted on April 4, 2017

If you have been with Tripping Vittles since the beginning  you may remember Whiskey Wednesday. It was my way of sharing whiskey one day a week. I quickly found out I was not a mixologist and did not have 52 drinks a year made just from whiskey in my repertoire. Though after some reflection and a few Bourbon drinks,  I am pretty sure I can share 12 drinks a year once a month on any given Wednesday. Drum roll please……..Today I reintroduce to you Whiskey Wednesday: Bourbon Sour edition.  (more…)
