What is Kohlrabi?
It's in the broccoli family. Some say it's a cross between an apple, broccoli, with a hint of turnip. It's also compared to jicama. Either way, it's crisp, fresh, and delicious! You can eat it raw, in stir fry, roast it, pickle it, bake it, just about anything! Here is a favorite recipe to start with...
Kohlrabi & Carrot Slaw
1 large kohlrabi, peeled, stems trimmed off, grated
¼ head cabbage, shredded
2 medium carrots, peeled and grated
½ red onion, grated
4 tablespoon cilantro, chopped (optional)
¼ cup golden raisins (optional)
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Combine the kohlrabi, cabbage, carrots, onion, cilantro, and raisins (if using) in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar, and salt. Pour dressing over the slaw, and mix until fully coated. Chill for several hours before serving. Enjoy!
