I saw some at a farmers market and almost bought it but I didn't because I didn't know what to do with it. I did a search and found some ideas at this blog: http://www.slashfood.com/2005/09/04/...hlrabi-virgin/ The slaw recipe looks good and the idea of pureeing them with mashed potatoes sounds good to me too. I think I'll be brave and try some this week.
I'd never eaten kohlrabi before I planted it in my garden this year. When we picked the first few, I cubed them and added them to fried rice. They were so good, the texture was creamy like a potato but tasted like cabbage (we are all cabbage lovers here). Even my ultra-picky four year old liked them.
4 bulbs kohlrabi
1/4 cup chopped scallions
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
2 T bread crumbs
1 t salt
1/2 t ground ginger
1/4 t red pepper flakes crushed (I actually used hot paprika)
fresh ground pepper to taste
1/4 cup olive oil
Peel and shred bulbs. Squeeze out moisture.
Mix everything except oil until well blended.
Heat oil in skillet. Drop mixture by spoonfuls into pan. Saute until golden (3-4 min. per side)
