last year I got some kohlrabi in my farmshare and I was all "what the fizzle is dis shiitake" but it really is delighful. I love it in the simplest of ways, peeled and sliced and added to a salad. wonderfully crisp. also delicious added to stir-frys and trays of roasted veggies. huffpo has an article on it as a part of their "what the fizzle, CSA?" series: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/1 ... 97114.html

enjoy!

I sliced and pickled my last bulb in rice vinegar with pepper, tamari, crushed red pepper and garlic.

I always make it the way my mom used to. Super simple: steam it a bit until its softer but not mushy and then toss with breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, and butter (EB obv).

I like it mashed! Or roasted simply with an herb and some olive oil. It's okay raw too as mentioned above, but I think it is tastiest cooked.

There's a kohlrabi slaw recipe in Plenty, but I haven't made it yet.

I love kohlrabi! I enjoy it sliced into sticks for snacking on raw, maybe dipped in hummous. You can grate it and add it to coleslaw or salad. I love the stir fry idea. I like to braise it. It is also good steamed, baked, or grilled, but it seems to take a very long time to cook. You can also eat the greens. Cook them however you would kale or collards.

This recipe for a kohlrabi slaw is REALLY good!
http://www.thewednesdaychef.com/the_wednesday_chef/2010/06/fearn-smiths-kohlrabi-salad.html

Other than that I like it cooked in a bechamel sauce spiced with nutmeg, salt and pepper (a pretty traditional Germany way of serving it).

I was not creative last year. We always made oven-baked fries... A little olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

Slice into sticks and eat raw, or use as a crudite to dip into things. You can cook it, but it's got such a lovely refreshing flavour and texture (it's like a cabbage-flavoured apple! But nicer than that sounds...) that it's a shame to cook it.

I've pickled it following Terry's pickled daikon recipe in VEW with very good results! Otherwise, crispy salads and slaws are very good ideas, yep.

Will keep an eye on this thread, as I got some in my CSA box last week, and have some more this week. Last week I made it into a gratin with beetroot.

I just made this salad and it is sooo delicious! I'm German so I grew up with Kohlrabi, and only ever had it raw or steamed or with a creamy sauce. This salad is a real winner and I shall make it more often! Thanks for the link, Lily!

My CSA is loading us up on kohlrabi too. I have always prefer it cooked, but you guys are inspiring me with your fancy slaws!
