MY brother gave me a couple of kohlrabi. Kohlrabi is a bit like a turnip but is mild and crisp with a delicate nutty flavour. I love them but I never quite know what to do with them apart from boil them or steam them. A quick search on the internet turned up the recipe below for Kohlrabi Salad from Riverford Organic Vegetables . It's delicious - fresh and summery yet substantial enough for a lovely lunch with the addition of some crusty bread. If you love vegetables, take a look at the site; there are some great recipes there.
