I have recently become the possessor of a kohl rabi, about the size of a tennis ball. What do I do with it?
You could either cook it or play with it
Well, I was thinking of doing some roast veg for when OH comes in late tonight. That poss?
We had a little of it in our salad at lunchtime. Don't eat the peel
Probably not bouncy enough.
Kohlrabi and Potato gratin.
Equal quantities of potato and kohlrabi, sliced thinly on a mandoline. A handful of strong, grated cheese. Some double cream, some milk, a chopped garlic clove, nutmeg salt and pepper.
Layer the kohlrabi, potato and cheese in a casserole.Mix the other things in a bowl and pour over. Bake for about an hour at 190°C, covering with foil if necessary.
That sounds pretty yummy. Shame she's off spuds (don't ask me why) and I'm off cream.
I suppose you could make it without potato. You'd need another kohlrabi really unless you eat very very small meals.
And I have found that Oatly's cream, made from oats, is a pretty good substitute, if you can buy it where you are.
I just peel it and grate it and serve either "remoulade" with a mustardy mayonnaise dressing or else mix it with grated apples and carrots and serve it like a cole slaw. Very refreshing.
I suspect it's going to end up roasted. Thanks anyway.
Yes - I was surprised how small it was - I'd thought kohl rabi was like celeriac. I just mentioned that, since we have salad for lunch (yes, even in this weather) maybe we shoud have some chopped white cabbage in it as a bit of a change. That's clearly not a common occurence in this part of the world.
Kohl rabi surprisingly nice in salads it has a slightly nutty flavour, I've never tried it cooked.
I don't think it lends itself to cooking. Far too much juice content.
