Kohlrabi, also known as the German turnip, is a variant of cabbage that is eaten primarily for its body rather than leaves. Kohlrabi contains has a sweet, vegetal flavor with a light, crunchy texture. The whole plant is edible raw or cooked but the skin should be peeled first as it can be woody in texture.
Uses: Slice the body thinly and treat it as you would cabbage. It makes for excellent coleslaw or as a vegetable for stir-frying. Cube kohlrabi, simmer it in soup. Kohlrabi pairs exceptionally well with lemon and salt.
