If they grow vegetables on Mars, I'm pretty sure they have kohlrabi. These otherworldly specimens were in our CSA box yesterday. I compare kohlrabi to jicama - hard to cut and peel and not a lot of flavor. I've only ever used both veggies cut up raw with dip. But I decided to try something different today and made cole slaw (or should that be kohl slaw?).
First I peeled the kohlrabi as much as I could and was terribly disappointed that the pretty red kohlrabi was white inside. Then I chopped them into pieces and pulsed them in the food processor with a carrot (also from yesterday's CSA box). I added some diced red onion, Trader Joe's lowfat eggless mayo, white balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, agave nectar and some dried dillweed. Not bad at all!
