We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

I've been looking for something to do with my kholrabi. It was my "one new thing" from the farmer's market this past weekend. I just might try sautéing it like you did. :)
