Kohlrabi takes on spicy ¿flavourings well, so is a good veg to use in Asian cooking, either in curries, stir-fries or even simply braised with aromatic Szechuan pepper and star anise in the braising liquid.


  • 250 g egg noodles
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp


Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then toss with the sesame oil to prevent them from sticking together.

Heat the sunflower oil in a wok, add the carrot, kohlrabi, garlic, ginger and chilli, if using, and stir-fry on a high heat for 3 minutes.

Add the noodles with the spring onions and the sugar snap peas or green beans and cook for a further 2 minutes.
