Kohlrabi can be eaten/juiced in its uncooked form or cooked with other vegetables.

Kohlrabi is pronounced 'cole-rah-bee'

Kohlrabi ia an underrated, unusual member of the cabbage family, which forms a swollen, ball-like root just above soil level.

The mild flavour makes kohlrabi a popular vegetable with children, as does its slightly weird apperance.

It can be eaten in a variety of ways -

1. Sliced thin 
& eaten raw. When raw, kohlrabi is slightly crunchy & mildly spicy, like radishes. You can toss them in a salad or eat them on their own with a drizzle of good olive oil & a sprinkling of sea salt.

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

3. In soup. We particularly like kohlrabi in a creamy, pureed soup with mild spices so that sweet kohlrabi flavour can really shine through. Also, try adding it to recipes for Cream of Potato, Cream of Broccoli, & even Cream of Mushroom soup!

4. Roasted. When roasted in the oven, the outside of the kohlrabi caramelizes, & the flavor sweetens & mellows. You can slice the kohlrabi thin for toasted "chips" or cube it. We like to toss it with other roasted veggies like eggplant & potatoes for a hearty side dish.

5. Steamed. This is kind of a cheat-suggestion because kohrabi can be used in literally anything once steamed. We throw steamed kohlrabi into frittatas, stir-fries, & pasta dishes. We also like to puree it with a little cream & simple spices

Kohrabi is found in a lot of Indian cooking, so it naturally does well with traditional Indian spices. Honestly, though, we tend to prefer it seasoned with just a nice sprinkling salt!


Kohlrabi, is low in cholesterol & saturated fat.

Although it looks like a root, it is actually a “swollen stem” that grows above the ground.  The texture of kohlrabi is similar to that of the broccoli’s stem, but is sweeter 
& milder in taste with a tinge of radish.


To store, trim off the leaves & store unwashed, in a plastic bag in the fridge.  Eat within the week.

Kohlrabi is one of the few foods that is both nutritious 
& filling. This makes it one of the better choices for weight loss. It also has an abundance of essential nutrients per calorie which makes it a healthier choice over other foods.

If you need an instant immune system boost, then try snacking on a cup of raw Kohlrabi.

Of all the vitamins in kohlrabi, vitamin C is the most abundant.

Kohlrabi is considered one of the healthiest foods

Kohlrabis grow above ground & are thus
exposed to more sunlight than the below ground vegetables

In the German language, it means "cabbage turnip." This aptly describes the family it came from--cabbage. Kohlrabi's appearance is almost a cross between a cabbage & a turnip. It has a turnip-shaped overgrown stem--the commonly eaten part--with leaves sprouting from it. There are several ways to prepare a kohlrabi. It can be eaten raw, grilled or stir-fried

When preparing kohlrabi for juicing, wash it clean & cut it up to the size that fits your juicer chute.  No skin to peel.  Mixes well with any greens & root vegetables.

Kohlrabi contains thiamin vitamins which contribute to normal brain function. Thiamin is needed for heart function & helps the body to release energy from food
