Kohlrabi / alabash / – a low-calorie vegetable, but rich in fiber, vitamins and flavonoids! Contains Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese. It belongs to the cabbage family and tastes like a stalk of broccoli – crispy, juicy and slightly sweet. The whole plant is used for food – the head and leaves can be eaten raw or cooked.
We have been growing kohlrabi / alabash / in our garden for more than 20 years and it is present in our menu almost all year round. In early spring I grow micro-plants from kohlrabi / alabash / – together with alfalfa and fenugreek sprouts are a wonderful addition to any salad. In late spring, when we have planted kohlrabi / alabash / plants in the garden, we pick young leaves for salad or soup. In summer, autumn and winter we have heads and large cooking leaves.
In our kitchen kohlrabi / alabash / is often present – raw or cooked. I make very tasty soups and stews with the big leaves, but I will scream about the tone next time. With kohlrabi / alabash / heads I make delicious salads, tempting vegan moussaka and wonderful stews – you can replace potatoes in any dish. Most often I prepare a raw salad of kohlrabi / alabash / with carrots and red beets – in winter this salad is present almost daily in our menu. I usually add fresh green spices from our garden and some chopped nuts to it. You get a wonderful salad for every day and every occasion!
