As far as I’m concerned, this is one of the ultimate chicken dishes: quick and easy to make, and thrillingly delicious.

A global favorite yet barely known in this country, kohlrabi is a rather sweet vegetable with a mild, broccoli-like flavor. When it's quickly cooked and then pureed, it can become a creamy (if cream-free) canvas for delicate, sweet enoki mushrooms and crunchy, salty peanuts.

Top with the peanuts and shallot. Serve with the sauce for diners to dress and toss their own bowls.
