Day 53: Fresh Kohlrabi ♥

Fresh Kohlrabi
Today's quick vegetable snack: Fresh, raw kohlrabi, as a snack, just like carrot sticks or cucumber wedges.

2005: Thanks to more back-breaking work in the garden late today, it's more raw food tonight, thick slices of almost-peppery kohlrabi. Kohlrabi (pronounced kall-ROB-ee) is a member of the turnip family and is some times called 'cabbage turnip'. Maybe that's because the color is just like a green cabbage! I liked raw kohlrabi better than last night's radishes and spring onions, it just seems more edible than, well, raw. (Later: And it tasted good the next day too, a desktop munch while working.)

2011: Raw kohlrabi is a great before-supper snack, wet and crisp, wetter than a carrot, crisper than a turnip. It's good!


Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Time to table: 5 minutes
Serves 4

4 bulbs kohlrabi

Remove tentacles from each bulb, then cut away skin if it seems tough. Slice and serve.
