Wondering what kohlrabi is? It's that space ship looking thing that we see each summer at farmers markets. Or is shows up in your CSA and you think, "What is that; and what do I do with it?".
Here's an easy starting place to get to know the vegetable.
I think it tasted sort of like the stalk of the broccoli plant.  Not a ton of flavor on its own; but adds a refreshing crunch to whatever you put it in.
