Kohlrabi (recipe)

Kohlrabi is a great vegetable; it has a mild, slightly nutty, sweet taste – not only is it delicious, it is rich in dietary fiber, carotenoids, vitamin A, B, C and K, calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, manganese and copper. The leaves contain minerals and vitamins as well so make sure to keep them – they can be juiced or sautéed!

Here is a very simple way to incorporate this amazing vegetable into your diet:

kohIngredients:
  • 1 or 2 white or purple kohlrabi
  • About 3 tbsp of raw organic coconut oil, alternatively flax seed oil or olive
  • About 1-2 tsp of curry spice (which you can also make yourself by mixing turmer- ic powder, paprika, cumin, black pepper, cayenne and other spices you like)
  • Pink Himalayan salt to taste

Feel free to adjust the amounts of all ingredients to your taste and liking.

Directions:
  1. Peel the kohlrabi, cut into sticks and place into a bowl. If you are using coconut oil, heat it to room temperature so it becomes liquid.
  2. Mix in the curry and add salt to taste.
  3. Pour the oil/curry mixture over the kohlrabi sticks and massage it into the kohlrabi sticks.
  4. Serve with lettuce, salad, other raw or steamed veggies.
