How to Cook Kohlrabi Vegetable

Boiled Kohlrabi

In its simplest form, kohlrabi can be boiled whole, cut up, and served with just a little butter, salt and pepper, and a dusting of chopped fresh parsley or chives.

Place the peeled and cut-up or unpeeled and whole kohlrabi in boiling salted water to cover. Simmer on medium hear for about 15 minutes if peeled and cut up, up to 25 minutes for whole bulbs. Drain. Once drained the unpeeled bulbs can easily be peeled, left whole or cut up, and tossed with melted butter.

If the kohlrabi is being used in a gratin, or any other recipe in which it is being parboiled, boil the bulbs whole in their skin for 5 minutes, drain, and peel before continuing with the recipe.
 


Steamed Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi is also delicious steamed. Place the peeled and cut-up bulbs in the steamer basket or colander over simmering water. Cover and steam until tender but not falling apart, up to 25 minutes.
 


Microwaved Kohlrabi

Arrange peeled, cut-up kohlrabi in one layer in a microwave dish. Add 2 tablespoons water, cover and vent. Microwave on high until tender but not falling apart, 4 to 6 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before uncovering.

Place whole kohlrabi in a microwave dish. Four small kohlrabi can be cooked at one time. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons water, cover and vent. Microwave on high until tender but not falling apart, 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, uncover, and peel before continuing with the recipe.
