This Weeks Recipes

1. Eaten Raw
When raw, kohlrabi is slightly crunchy and mildly spicy, like radishes mixed with turnip. You can toss them in a
salad, make a slaw out of grated kohlrabi, or eat them on their own with a drizzle of good olive oil and a sprinkling
of sea salt.

2. In Soup
While kohlrabi can be thrown into a basic chunky vegetable soup, we particularly like it in a creamy, pureed soup
with mild spices so that sweet kohlrabi flavor can really shine through. Kohlrabi can also be added to recipes for
Cream of Potato, Cream of Broccoli, and even Cream of Mushroom soup!

3. Made Into Fritters

This is a great way to get kids to eat their kohlrabi! Shred it and mix with an egg and a few tablespoons of flour or
breadcrumbs. Heat oil or butter in a flat skillet, drop on small mounds, and flatten slightly with the back of your
spatula. Turn after a few minutes, and serve when both sides are crispy.

4. Roasted
Like most other vegetables, when roasted in the oven, the outside of the kohlrabi caramelizes, and the flavor sweetens and mellows. We like to toss it with other roasted veggies like eggplant and potatoes for a hearty side dish.

5. Steamed
This is kind of a cheat-suggestion because kohlrabi can be used in literally anything once steamed. We throw
steamed kohlrabi into frittatas, stir-fries, and pasta dishes. We also like to puree it with a little cream and simple
spices. There are even recipes for stuffing steamed kohlrabi into empanadas and calzones!

Kohlrabi-and-Turnip Slaw
This recipe is quick, simple, and can use three to four item from your share. Since the kohlrabi leaves have already
been trimmed, you can use a bit of your mustard greens or spinach to replace them.

1 pound kohlrabi (about 2 small heads, leaves included)

1 medium turnip (about 8 ounces), peeled and quartered

3 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon peanut oil

2 teaspoons honey

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

Coarse salt and ground pepper

2 scallions, thinly sliced

1. Separate stems from kohlrabi bulb, trim, and discard tough bottoms of stems. Half leaves lengthwise then thinly shred crosswise. Trim root
end from bulb and peel away tough outer layer; halve lengthwise.

Fit a food processor with a shredding blade (or use a box grater) and shred kohlrabi bulb and turnip.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, peanut oil, honey, and sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Add scallions, kohlrabi leaves
and bulb, and turnip to bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at least 15 minutes.
