I love steamed in a butter sauce kohlrabi but have never given thought to the green tops until today. Does or has anyone cooked the tops down the same as turnip greens? I found a large bundle today for a little over $2 and want to get the most out of the bundle.

I've learned from my friend the "urban farmer" that most vegetable tops can be cooked and enjoyed whilst very fresh. I wish I was more crazy about greens though, myself.

I have wilted greens in a little butter and used them as the filling for a rolled omelet (along with cheese).

Great use for greens....omelet. Love spinach with eggs and also in enchiladas.

I put all green toppings in a stir fry. I love them. stir fry with onions, garlic, ginger, & whatever else you have & add some Asian sauce, or it is also good without the sauce. I read that the Chinese grow red radish for the greens, not the red roots, so now I will only buy radish with greens attached, so I get double use

Shredded in soup or slaw or stir fry. I actually like it raw.
