What to do with the leaves and stalks of kohlrabi? They can be easily shredded into a salad or made into a tasty side dish as in this recipe : a simple sauté with some added citrus freshness.




Leaves and stalks of 3 Kohlrabi  (kohlrabi greens)

1 Tbsp Groundnut Oil – Olive would also be good

½ Onion – Sliced or chopped

½ Lemon Juice

Salt & Pepper to taste



Finely chop the leaves and stalks of the kohlrabi.

Heat a Sauté pan on medium, then add the oil.

When at heat, add the onion with a pinch of salt and fry for 4 minutes, until just starting to brown.

Add the kohlrabi and 50ml water, stir and then cover to steam for 10 minutes.

Check the pan and add more water to steam for a further 5 to 10 minutes until desired tenderness is achieved.

Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
