What the heck is kohlrabi?

If you have received a green, knobby, odd shaped thing in your DA BOX this week, you have received kohlrabi. It is a fantastically versatile vegetable with a taste and texture somewhere between cabbage and broccoli stems. Always peel off the tough outermost layer of the bulb with a vegetable peeler first. Here are a few ideas:

  • Enjoy raw. You can toss them in a salad, make a slaw out of grated kohlrabi, or eat them on their own with a drizzle of good olive oil and a sprinkling of sea salt.

  • Puréed into soup. Kohlrabi can also be added to recipes for cream of potato, cream of broccoli, and even cream of mushroom soup!

  • Made into fritters. This is a great way to get kids to eat their kohlrabi! Shred it and mix with an egg and a few tablespoons of flour or breadcrumbs. Heat oil or butter in a flat skillet, drop on small mounds, and flatten slightly with the back of your spatula. Turn after a few minutes, and serve when both sides are crispy.
