Kohlrabi, Agapanthus Bud and Summer Colour

1   Another gift from our lovely neighbour was a Kohlrabi which we had never eaten before. What a beautiful, purple sputnik of a vegetable – and it tasted good too! The name literally translates as ‘cabbage turnip’!   I steamed it in small chunks and served it in a Béchamel sauce with some medallions of pork tenderloin (from a friend’s happy pigs) and mushrooms.
