Have you seen kohlrabi hanging out at the farmers market, supermarket even?
Give it a go, it’s not as weird as you might think!
Kohlrabi has a pretty mild flavour, a little bit like radish and kind of a savoury apple texture. It’s great raw or cooked and can be prepared lots of different ways, you can even eat the green tops as well. Ive roasted it here because the weathers getting a bit cooler and everything tastes great roasted!
If you want to try it raw you could slice into matchsticks or small cubes and mix with a creamy dressing, like home-made mayonnaise or yoghurt.
Let us know what you think and see if you discover a fondness for my funky buddy kohlrabi.
1. Remove the rough skin with a knife, chop into small cubes, coat in butter or oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and some herbs and spices ( I used thyme and cumin)
2. Roast at 200C for 20-30 minutes until golden and soft in the middle.
3. Thinly slice the kohlrabi greens and then mix with the roasted kohlrabi, taste and add a little salt, oil and/or lemon juice to your liking.
4. I also added some roasted golden beetroot to this salad and it was delicious!
