Kohlrabi shares its origins with cabbage, broccoli, kale, and Brussels sprouts – all are of the same species as the wild cabbage plant (Brassica oleracea).  Its name is Austrian, a combination of the German word for cabbage “Kohl” and the Swiss German variant for turnip “Rübe”  because its round stem looks like a turnip.  It has migrated over the centuries into the cuisines of India, Africa, China and Isreal.

Both the taste and texture of kohlrabi is a sweeter version of a broccoli stem.   When young the stem can be as crisp and juicy as an apple.  Both white and purple varieties are being grown in Hawaii.  Both its round stem and leafy greens can be eaten.

As it is part of the brassica family it is known nutritionally for its high antioxidant properties. Low in calories and high in fiber to boot.
Prepping and Eating Tips

– Make sure you peel the stem well first: there is a thick outer skin and then a fibrous layer.  The skin will not soften by cooking and can get stuck in your throat so peel away!

– Stem (once peeled) can be eaten raw or cooked.

– Nice raw in salad or crudite.  Mandolin it for a crisp addition to summer rolls.

– Fry, bake, steam, puree, spring roll it.

– Green leaves can be used interchangeably with collard and kale.

Selecting and Storing Tips

Select kohlrabi that are tender, crack/blemish-free and wrinkle free. Greens should be deep green all over, avoid yellowing leaves.

Clip leaves off stem and store in air tight bag for up to three days in the refrigerator.  Store stem unwashed and in plastic bag for up to one month in refrigerator.
