What is Kohlrabi?
If you’ve never seen kohlrabi before, it might catch you a bit off-guard. These strange, knobbly bulbs look as though they’ve come from an alien planet. In reality, our local kohlrabi might as well be from your backyard.
It is a member of the Brassica family, along with vegetables like broccoli and cabbage. Both the leaves and stem (the round part) are delicious to eat and contain a plethora of important nutrients.
Like the other cruciferous Brassicas, this vegetable is especially high in Vitamin C, fiber, and anthocyanins.
How to Eat Kohlrabi
First, remove the outer skin with a paring knife. Then, enjoy any way you like! Try it out raw and shredded into a salad; it has a sweet, crisp taste not unlike an apple. It is also wonderful roasted or sautéed. Cook it with some onions, spinach, and cashew milk for a creamy and hearty casserole. You can also add it into any fresh vegetable slaw for a punch of flavor and texture.
