What Are Kohlrabi Noodles?

Oh, kohlrabi… When I got my first CSA box, I first became aware of this strange vegetable years ago. I wasn’t a vegetable explorer at the time, so I had no idea what it was and had no idea what to do with it. Since then, kohlrabi appears to have gained some popularity; I frequently see it on restaurant menus, but back then, it was hardly even searchable.

Fast forward to now – it’s one of my favorites. Despite claims to the contrary, I believe it is more akin to daikon or even jicama than broccoli stems. It makes a fantastic crunchy slaw when you slice it up into sticks and marinate it for a while. I’ve used the same slaw to top tacos before, but today I combined rice noodles and white kohlrabi sticks.

Cut your kohlrabi into slices that resemble rice sticks. Even though there are only vegetables in half of your bowl, you’ll think you’re eating a huge bowl of noodles. If kohlrabi is unavailable, you could use cucumbers to achieve the same results.

I used these noodles, but you could also use these.
