What to do with Kohlrabi?

Whether you are already a fan of this unique vegetable or need a little coaxing and encouragement… try these recipe ideas and I guarantee your next kohlrabi dish won’t be your last!

Kohlrabi is a crispy, sweet tasting, delicately flavored member of the Brassica family of vegetables, grown for its swollen, turnip-shaped portion of the stem which rests on the ground. It’s a distinctive looking vegetable, with a ball-like shape, marked by points where the leaf-stems attached. The flesh of the bulb is juicy and crisp with a sweetness and texture similar to that of an apple, and a hint of mild turnip-cabbage flavor.

Another great thing about kohlrabi is that every bit of the plant is edible and delicious – from the bulb, to the stems, to the leaves! Plus, it can be eaten raw, as well as cooked.

According to the USDA nutritional data, they are an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of potassium, while being low in both sodium and calories. One cup of diced and cooked kohlrabi contains 140% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C and only 40 calories.

Be sure to come by and get some fresh Purple Kohlrabi from us next Saturday!
See you at the Market!
