Cooking with Kohlrabi

Like other cabbage crops, kohlrabi is loaded with good nutrition. Just 1 cup of raw kohlrabi contains nearly 100 percent of the daily requirement for vitamin C, plus it’s a good source of fiber, and has less than 40 calories. Cole crops such as kohlrabi also contain glucosinolates, which break down into compounds that researchers think may help protect against many kinds of cancer.

You can use either purple or white kohlrabi in the following recipes — the interior of both types is white, and both have the same mild, tangy-sweet flavor.
