More About Purple Vienna Kohlrabi:
The only place that we have seen these purple kohlrabi on sale is at the farm store in late spring. The name kohlrabi comes from the words “kohl” which means cabbage and “rabi” which means turnip. This vegetable has a turnip shaped edible swollen stem and cabbage-like leaves. We have cooked the leaves by themselves or in soups and eaten the stems raw in salads, and cooked in soups. They are also great cut into raw strips for dips. When purchased, the leaves should not be wilted and the stems should be firm. These particular purple kohlrabi already had the leaves removed when we purchased them.
The literature says that the purple color is mostly superficial, and that the nutritional value is very much the same as non-purple kohlrabi.
Some background information:
Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
