What is it?
Kohlrabi is a member of the Brassica family, which also includes cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale and collard greens (to name a few). The plant is native to the European region and there are two main varieties that exist - white and purple. However, both the white (actually light green color) and purple have the same colored (edible) flesh.
What does it taste like?
Kohlrabi has a similar taste and texture as a broccoli stem or cabbage. However, its flavor is more mild than broccoli and sweeter than cabbage. And the younger plants (like our delicious microgreens!) have an extremely pleasant taste with a rich flavor profile.
What do I do with it?
You can add your homegrown Kohlrabi microgreens to any salad or smoothie, or even use them as a stand alone garnish. Check out our Grow.Bar Recipes for more fun ideas and let us know what some of your favorites are. The best part is that there's no chopping required. Simply harvest and toss in the blender or fresh salad mix!
Why should I eat or drink it?
If consumed fresh, kohlrabi is an excellent source of vitamin C - a water-soluble vitamin and powerful anti-oxidant. Vitamin C helps the human body maintain healthy connective tissue, teeth, and gums and its antioxidant properties help protect the body from diseases and cancers. The super "kool" green also contains a decent amount of B-complex vitamins (like niacin, vitamin B-6 and thiamin). And it has notable levels of minerals as well, such as copper, calcium, potassium and iron.
