    I had a free packet of these seeds so I chucked them into the garden a little while ago and now they're doing rather well. In fact, its doing very well. It looks like I'm going to have quite a lot of it.
    I don't think I've ever cooked with it or come across it before so what to do with it?...ideas please my lovely cookery TESsers!

    It cooks in a gratin extremely well - think turnip gratin but with a more brassica edge to it.
    I love it raw, mainly, in a salad, dressed simply with oil and lemon juice.
    I imagine you could make a roulade, a la celeriac with it.
    I love it. Somewhere between turnip and cabbage.
     
  4. Or (Italian, from Friuli region), slices braised in butter and then simmered in a little stock with vinegar and some cumin seeds plus seasoning. Delicious.

    More fab ideas - thank you!
     
  6. I had a kohlrabi in my veg box this week.
    I've grated a couple of pieces (raw) and mixed them with joghurt and mustard. This will then be spread onto granary bread and topped with lettuce and a little lean ham for a tasty sandwich!
    I will save some for Sunday - I plan on doing a mini 'bake' as a side dish to my roast...carrots and kohlrabi baked with a little Philly cheese.
    (I love kohlrabi!)
