Carrot/Kohlrabi Slaw

By Marcus | In Gymnastics, Recipes | on March 24, 2011

Inspiration for today's recipe

As you may have seen Avelyne post on Sunday, many of us were introduced to the kohlrabi two weeks ago with our first CSA boxes. After I read that the kohlrabi could be eaten raw, I somewhat volunteered to try it that way. (Read: Ruth turned her nose up and thought I was nuts, as usual.) Once I separated the greens and then peeled the actual root, I sliced off a bit of the white flesh and found it to be tasty. It was a bit peppery with a sharp taste similar to a radish and texture much like jicama.

I then decided to make a slaw out of the kohlrabi and the carrots that also came in the CSA box, figuring the flavors would complement each other. My goal was to approximate the pickled carrot/daikon slaw common to Asian cuisine, minus the sugar usually used to pickle the mixture. After cleaning the carrots, I cut the kohlrabi into chunks and shredded both in a food processor. Now that I had about 4 cups of shredded carrots and kohlrabi, I placed them in a tupperware and added the following:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos*

Mix all the ingredients together fully and let refrigerate for a few hours, or overnight. Serve chilled as a side dish.

* – I’ve posted a recipe or two that called for coconut aminos. For those curious, it’s a soy sauce substitute made from coconut sap and sea salt. It has a salty and slightly sweet flavor, more akin to a teriyaki than a soy sauce but with elements of each. It can be found at Whole Foods and I highly recommend picking some up!

      Sorry buddy, it’s all gone! Ruth got to try some though, if you want an unbiased review. :)

      I’ll try it again if we get more kohlrabi and carrots tonight.

    Now that we are doing gymnastics I think we need to get one of those giant Costco trampolines. We can put it on the roof.
