Kohlrabi Fritters

What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Appetizers to Desserts: Kohlrabi Fritters! I stumbled onto this odd shaped vegetable at the Farmers Market and was intrigued by the green spiked bulbous shape with its long leafy shoots. It reminded me of a turnip, but had the faint aroma of cabbage. After learning its name, I just had to try it. My mind was already thinking of its seasoned taste fried crisp in olive oil.

KOHLRABI FRITTERS

Ingredients:

1 medium kohlrabi

1 small sweet potato

1/2 yellow onion

1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper

1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup flour

2 eggs, beaten

1 green onion

Olive oil for frying

Instructions:

Peel kohlrabi and sweet potato. Using a food processor, grate the kohlrabi, sweet potato, and yellow onion. It should equal 3 1/2 cups of shredded vegetables. Transfer to a bowl. Add seasonings, baking powder, and flour. Fold in the beaten eggs to coat well. Snip the green onion with kitchen shears and gently mix in. The fritters should stick together. Pour enough olive oil in a skillet to cover the bottom of the pan. Heat on medium high. Drop kohlrabi mixture by heaping spoonfuls into the oil. Pan fry 2 minutes without burning. Turn over and fry another 2 minutes. Watch! Remove and drain on paper towels. Continue making fritters until all mixture is used. Serve warm with a dollop of Greek yogurt and garnish with green onion snips.

  1. Gail,

    When the conversation turns to fritters, I simply exclaim “SOLD”, after which I sit down and say a silent prayer for will power, so’s I don’t make a complete fool of myself when they are delivered to the table.

    What does kohlrabi taste like? It looks so good!
