12 Ways with Kohlrabi


This knobbly, alien-looking, subtly flavored root vegetable, a member of the brassica family, is available all year round, but starts turning up at farmers' markets and vegetable gardens in July and August in the Northern Hemisphere. It is easy to grow, can be stored for a long time and is easy to cook with too – or eat it raw, as in Luke Nguyen's Vietnamese-style Beef and Kohlrabi salad.
