So trying new things....I bought this kohlrabi, peeled it (like an apple) then grated. Stirred in some fresh lemon juice. I mixed vegan sour cream with some maple syrup then mixed it in the grated kohlrabi. Added some roasted walnuts and wow what a great slaw.

Kohlrabi (German turnip) (Brassica oleracea Gongylodes group) is a low, stout cultivar of the cabbage that will grow almost anywhere. The taste and texture of kohlrabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter, with a higher ratio of flesh to skin. The young stem in particular can be as crisp and juicy as an apple, although much less sweet.
