I first discovered my love for this German turnip in, where else but Germany! I grew up a military brat and remember being handed a fresh slice of Kholrabi right in our garden plot. It was sweet, crisp and I wanted more!
Imagine my delight when I found this beauty at our farmer’s market! If you are lucky enough to find one with the leaves intact – don’t throw them away. Sauté with a little olive oil and enjoy!
Kholrabi is delicious raw or cooked as below. So hurry snatch some up before it is too late!
- 1 1lb Kholrabi, peeled and sliced 1/4” sticks
- 1 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 tbsp Flaxseed Oil
- 5 tsp Parmesan, shredded
In a large saucepan set 6 cups of water to boil over medium high heat. Meanwhile prepare Kholrabi. Once water is boiling, add sliced Kholrabi and boil for ten minutes.
In a large bowl add shredded parmesan, chia seeds and flaxseed oil.
Drain Kholrabi and add to parmesan mixture. Toss to coat.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
I grew up eating kolrabi and have always loved its mild, slightly radishy taste, but I’ve always eaten it raw and I’ve never tried the leaves. I look forward to trying this and also the chia seeds. Thank you.
This sounds delicious!
The recipe looks delicious…I will definitely try it. Thanks for sharing!
