This flavorful Whole Baked Kohlrabi with Sesame and Veto will be an indulgent discovery as the caramelized sweetness in this concoction is simply delicious. Actually a hit on its own, but served on a fresh leaf salad, with a few squirts of fresh lemon juice or a good olive oil bring out even more of its natural taste. A crumbled vegan veto or, as a vegetarian variant, feta give a delicious finish to this simple dish.
… also known as turnip, turnip cabbage, turnip or German turnip, is a vegetable in the same family as broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. It is edible in its entirety and has leaves that are great in salads, soups and stews. The tuber can be cooked or eaten raw. Kohlrabi has a mild flavor and is a lovely addition to your healthy meals when in season. Sweet, with a peppery tart note, kohlrabi is a bit reminiscent of the stalks of other cruciferous vegetables.
Kohlrabi is great sautéed, roasted, baked, or sliced into thin strips or slices in a coleslaw salad.
If you have the chance to get it at your weekly market, grab it. Whenever possible, choose kohlrabi that still has leaves and a firm bulb. It is also better to choose smaller kohlrabi, as these are usually sweeter. Processing and cooking fresh kohlrabi is easy and makes a great accompaniment to almost any meal. Or make it the star of the vegetable table in vegan and vegetarian preparations for soups , pasta or delicious vegan fried schnitzel.
