I have never particularly like kohlrabi, but I have a bunch from my CSA. Any suggestions of favorite things to do with them? Thanks!

I asked this question a few weeks ago:

I roasted it in medium dice in a quick oven with olive oil and salt, and it was amazing. ;o)

Roast it and treat it like roasted broccoli--put it over pasta, sauced in lemon and butter. There's a good recipe for crostini with roasted kohlrabi on the site.

Well you can chop them up, and cover them with a inch of water add some sugar, salt and butter and simmer till tender. Most recently I made a puree from this recipe.

It changes quite a bit depending on how many of the leaves you add.

Go raw: batonettes or grated in salad, sliced thickish as chip alt for hummus etc, sliced thinner as fun crunchy surprise in sandwiches, diced in tuna salad.
