Kohlrabi can be intimidating looking if you’ve never encountered it before, but it’s actually a very mellow tasting veggie with a cool, crisp flavor that is perfect for these hot days. If you’re looking to experiment it is most similar in taste and texture to a broccoli stem.
The other night I made a quick and easy slaw with shredded kohlrabi and shredded carrot and a basic dressing with about a half cup of mayonnaise, a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and some honey. I then added some salt, pepper, and celery seed to season. If I’d had more ingredients and time I might have added some nuts, cabbage, and/or apple to the mix. My boyfriend likes spicier food in general and added some hot pepper flakes to his serving.
