Caramelized Fennel and Kohlrabi (Week 10)

My sister called and asked what to do with fennel (she was trying to figure something to pair with a very French meal) and was somewhat stumped.  I shared something quick that I had on our plate tonight.  I told her about my little adventure with kohlrabi (this odd looking veggie that tastes like a broccoli stalk).  I like them but I find they are challenging to prepare since the skin is so tough.  See photo...."sputnik"
I peeled therm then thinly sliced them in rounds.  I then took a small bulb of fennel that I purchased from Smith Organic Farms, washed, trimmed then sliced finely.  In a skillet, I melted about 2 tablespoons of butter and about 2 tablespoons of Verni EVO.  I then tossed in the fennel and browned the added the kohlrabi.  I let it caramelize then sprinkled Vegeta (well...what else?  I'm Croatian).  Wonderful delicate flavor...and very quick (we were headed to see the tax man.
