ISO Kohlrabi Recipe Ideas

One of our neighbors gave us some kohlrabi from their garden. I don't have a lot of experience with this vegetable. My mom used to just cube it and steam it. The few times I've made it, I did the same thing. I also tried it one time in a curry, on someone's recommendation. It was okay.

Does anyone have a good "off the beaten path" recipe for kohlrabi? Or maybe just some ideas?

Steve, I've only eaten it raw, cut into sticks, and served them on a vegetable platter of raw vegetables. I love how crunchy it is. That's how we've had it since we were kids.

Kohlrabii is one of my favorite veggies. I love it raw (sliced) with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, EVOO, and vinegar. The other thing I do is make it into a slaw. Here's a recipe that I like as well. I've never cooked it--been meaning to do that, but it never makes it that far--I just love it raw. I grow the purple variety. The leaves are edible as well--those I've steamed.

Thanks guys. Bliss and CWS, I've never tried it raw. I may have to do that.

I did find the following recipe, which looks kind of interesting. I think this is what I'm going to do. Anything with panko, cream, and parmesan is A-OK in my book.

I love spaghetti squash. We have it all the time. My favorite way to make it is with butter, s & p. Plain and simple. It's also good tossed with evoo, chopped tomatoes, and basil.

Well, peel them first and get out a heavy duty sharp knife. Kohlrabi is one of my favorite summer vegetables.

You can cut them up french fry style, toss with evoo and salt and roast in a single layer, turn them over at least once. They brown up nicely but didn't seem to crisp up like potato fries. Maybe I was impatient and took them from the oven too soon.

Make "summer pickles" like cukes. Slice thin, put in a sweet sour vinegar solution with a few spices / herbs. I like hot chili, diced, coriandar seed, garlic, celery seed, whatever you like. Refrigerate overnight.

Matchstick and put in cole slaw.

Cook like turnips and mash with butter, S & P. An incredible waste, but it can be done, for those who like turnips.

My favorite way is to simply thin slice or make sticks and serve with a little sea salt and a few grains of chili pepper. These are a nice addition to a veggie tray.

Slice it really thin or julienne it, sea salt, EVOO, pepper, a bit of your favorite vinegar--with a G&T--can't go wrong.
