Have you been wondering how to use up that kohlrabi that came in your organic veg box this week? If you're anything like me, the weird and wonderful fruits and veggies that come in boxes can be baffling to know what to do with. This vegan coleslaw recipe using kohlrabi instead of white cabbage is hopefully some inspiration for you, and a fresh and interesting take on traditional coleslaw. It's quick and easy to make, and could even be a reason to go out and buy kohlrabi. You know, on purpose.
I first discovered kohlrabi when I had veg boxes delivered some time ago, and spent a wee while trying to work out what to do with it. I don't get veg boxes now but I have since come to really enjoy this less common vegetable, also known as 'German turnip', which is from the cabbage family. It's more akin to a milder tasting turnip however than cabbage, and it's frequently eaten raw.
