Exactly what does one do with kohlrabi?

Kohlrabi is as strange to most CSA members and farmers market goers as it looks in the garden: like a spaceship. The first way I ever tried it was by peeling it and eating thin slices of it plain. It tastes very much like broccoli stem (it is also a brassica), which I love, so plain works for me. But variety is the spice of life, so I'd love some new ideas!

 

 

 

 

Any suggestions?

i absolutely love kohlrabi. its one of my favorite veggies. i cant ever get too much. i think it taste a little like kale but the structure is different which makes it fun to work with.

 

i do a lot of stirfries in general. I rinse and peel various veggies--usually one or two of --carrots, kohlrabi, parsnips with a green like spinach, kale or chard (excellent if you arent a fan of the flavor of chard as it softens it out) and then either/or onion and garlic. how you want your proportions, is your call but i generally for 4 do 2 cloves of garlic from a garlic press and 1/2 chopped onion that i stirfry in avocado oil or similar for a few minutes. i add 2 shredded carrots, 1 shredded kohlrabi and 1 shredded parsnip (i used a mandolin device to shred sort of like hashbrown in size or smaller) and a few minutes later i add chopped chard (one bunch) or one bunch kale. i add some salt and pepper and let it cook maybe 10 min. this in itself is really good.

 

you can do above recipe but if you want a quick dinner variation: buy a curry paste and add to the mix with some coconut milk. cook some quinoa simultaneously as you do the veggies. voila--now a vegan dish thats yummy.

 

a non vegan version: sometimes i buy some tasty chicken sausages fi the chicken mango or chicken habanero they have at the central coast specialty store are really good for it or you can get any other at any grocery store and chop up and stirfry in a separate frying pan and add on top of the veggies.

  • Our cucumber plants are producing like crazy this year, and we can't use them enough. We've made lots of different kinds of pickles (dill, curry, spicy, and more) and drank lots of cucumber water. But the best creation came from Rachel Meeker, who substituted cucumber for zucchini in a lemon zucchini bread recipe and topped it with frosting for the most dense, moist cake I've had in recent memory! Today it will be available at our farm stand from noon to dark! Come grab a slice if you're in the area :D
  • We have LOTS of lettuces, kale, and chard, and we're constantly trying to find new ways to keep our salads interesting. I love the flavors of tomatoes with basil, so anytime I've added tomatoes to the salads, I've also added a garnish of basil. But I've realized that it's such a treat to have basil in salads that I've begun adding it regularly to the salads to keep the flavor of the salad mix interesting without having to add lots of dressing or other ingredients. I like to chiffonade basil leaves to keep the flavors simple and bright. Any other ideas for salad mixes with herbs?
