My fathers brother planted his garden and he planted kohlrabi's which my dad enjoyed picking, peeling and eating raw, is there some other way anyone enjoys these little cabbage, potatoe type vegies?

Oh yes. Peel and cube like you would potatoes for potato salad. Stem and cover with melted cheese. Similar to cauliflower with cheese sauce. It's ok if they are still crunchy in the middle.

I've used it in stir-fry and that went pretty well.

My grandma would boil them and serve with butter. They are so good raw. Haven't had one in a while.

Great for grating! Make them into a slaw of any kind...

Combine with radish or carrot, salt, sugar and vinegar for a really simple one, or go fancy with lime, onion, radish, apple, parsley....I think it's a fresh taste so best without mayo, but plain yogurt could be good.

PS 'Kohl Rabi' means cabbage turnip - and you can pretty much use it as you would either of those two veggies.

I like to pair kholrabi with carrots. I always look for the smaller ones since they have a thinner, edible skin which you don't have to peel first.

I usually do a variation on this recipe:

Quote:
1 medium to large kohlrabi, or 2-3 small ones, chopped into cubes
4 large carrots, chopped into cubes
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter or EV olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Heat a medium skillet, put kohlrabi and carrots in it and cover with about 1 1/2 cups of lightly salted water (could be broth as well). Cook about 10 minutes until vegetables are cooked and the water is gone. You might need more water, so feel free to add some.

Now you can lightly mash the vegetables, leaving a lot of texture. Don't try to make them smooth like mashed potatoes.

Add nutmeg and margarine.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 20 minutes
