FAQs about kohlrabi
The kohlrabi bulb has a sweet-but-peppery flavor that reminds one of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart. When cooked, the flesh becomes a bit sweeter, especially if it's caramelized. In general, the younger the kohlrabi plant, the sweeter it will be. As the vegetable matures, it develops a spicier and sharper taste. The stalks carry hints of both cucumber and radish flavors, while the leaves are reminiscent of turnip greens.
Kohlrabi is a versatile vegetable, as you can eat its bulb, stems, and leaves. Remove the thin peel from the bulb with a vegetable peeler or a paring knife before using it in your dishes since it has a bitter taste. Thinly sliced or grated, the crisp flesh of the bulb makes for a crunchy and tasty addition to salads or slaws. If it's cold outside, cube a kohlrabi bulb and some butternut squash, toss the pieces with olive oil and roast them in the oven.
Another delicious way to prepare the bulb is to hollow it out, stuff it with a filling of your choice, and then bake it. The leaves and stems of kohlrabi are also very tasty. You can steam or saute these greens, just as you would do with fresh kale, or you can finely chop the leaves and use them raw in a salad.
Kohlrabi is packed with vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, and vitamins C and B6. The vegetable also contains loads of fiber, which helps to keep your gut healthy. Apart from acting as a powerful antioxidant, kohlrabi supports your immune system and can also lower your risk of heart disease.
