Total time
Recipe type: side dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 3
  • 3 kohlrabi (with greens)
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (or to taste)
  • ½ teaspoon of mustard seed (or to taste)
  • ½ tablespoon of garlic
  • ½-1 cup of water
  • Olive oil
  1. Remove the greens from the kohlrabi and set aside. Peel the kohlrabi and remove all stems. Dice into cubes.
  2. Chop the kohlrabi greens into bite sized pieces, removing any tough stems. Wash them well (I always do at least 2 soaks with greens, most of the time three), and drain them well.
  3. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to your pan, put on medium heat and get it hot. Saute the garlic, red pepper and mustard seen in olive oil for a few seconds before adding the kohlrabi.
  4. Get some nice brown on your kohlrabi (maybe 3-5 minutes).
  5. Add ½ cup of water and greens. Cover and cook for 20-30 minutes, stirring and checking occasionally to make sure you have enough liquid. These should have the consistency of turnips and turnip greens.
