Kohlrabi is a vegetable from the cabbage family and basically tastes like a combination of cabbage and broccoli. Kohlrabi is also considered one of the healthiest foods. There are only a few foods that can claim to be low in calories, high in nutrients and extremely low in cholesterol and saturated fat. It’s a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals, just 1 cup of kohlrabi is more than enough of your daily vitamin C requirements, and it’s packed with potassium, copper and manganese. On top of that, it’s incredibly crisp and tasty, and works perfectly in this pickled kohlrabi recipe. And it looks like this (comes in green or purple variety):
I myself had never even heard of kohlrabi until I received my box of fresh produce from Farm Fresh to You and found it lying amongst all the other beautiful and lush produce. Eager to find out more about it and how to use, I went straight to work researching it and determining the best way to prepare it. I ate some raw, and then put it straight to work in this pickled kohlrabi recipe and was thrilled with how yummy and filling it was. At 0 Points +, it’s a fabulous Weight Watchers snack idea, and much healthier than a jar of pickles.
