Why We Like It

Kohlrabi (pronounced kohl-rah-bee), may look a little strange but it is a delicious and versatile cruciferous vegetable.  The outside is light green or purple and the insides are white.  It's similar to a sweet radish and can be cooked or simply eaten raw.  You trim the stems and we normally peel them since the skins can be thick and tough.  This recipe for kohlrabi fries is a great way to enjoy vegetable fries that still have some crunch!

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

Prepare and Bake the Fries:

  • 3 kohlrabi (stems removed, peeled and cut into matchsticks)
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

Add to a large bowl and stir to combine.  Spread onto a large greased baking sheet in a single layer.  Bake for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and stir to toss, and then bake 5 minutes more.  (Some people bake their kohlrabi fries as long as 30 minutes, but we tried this and they got pretty soft, so we shortened the bake time so they would be hot and slightly browned, but still crunchy.  Feel free to adjust the cooking time to your preference.)

Serve and Enjoy!

Quick Tips

You can easily switch up the chili powder flavoring for another seasoning such as curry powder or just olive oil, salt and pepper would taste great too!
