Kohlrabi: refreshing and mellow

Kohlrabi is one of the coolest vegetables you’ve never heard of (probably). It’s a relative of cabbage and the waxy appearance gives it away. These are purple and green cultivars.

I would describe the flavor and texture is being like an apple without the tart and sweet flavors. Brent describes it as being a radish without the spice. Either way, my favorite way to prepare it is skinned, sliced and dusted with salt.

This is the purple one.

  1. Nice to see this veggie get some support!

  2. I love it sliced thin with salt too!!

  3. I’m also into trying new vegetables and am discovering that outsides give no hint about insides!
