That vegetable you see at the farmers market that looks a little bit like a tiny alien? That’s called Kohlrabi. If you’re a fan of broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts, you’ll most definitely love kohlrabi too. Kohlrabi is a cruciferous vegetable, just like cabbage, broccoli and kale. It comes into season in the summer time. The funny-looking vegetable is about the size and shape of an orange, with a bunch of leafy stems sticking out. It has thick skin that can range from pale green to purple, though the inside is always a very pale yellow. The smaller bulbs tend to be more tender and flavorful but the large ones are also fine for cooking and eating. The bulb and the leaves are all edible (the freshest kohlrabi will still have the leaves attached, which can be eaten raw or cooked like any greens). Every inch of the veggie is packed with fiber, vitamin C, potassium and even some protein.
