These two cabbage cousins offer an interesting twist on the traditional coleslaw. Kohlrabi makes a great addition to stir-fries, while turnips, when pureed with a little butter, serve as an excellent side dish. For the greens, saute them as you would kale or spinach.

Instructions Checklist
  • Separate stems from kohlrabi bulb, trim, and discard tough bottoms of stems. Half leaves lengthwise then thinly shred crosswise. Trim root end from bulb and peel away tough outer layer; halve lengthwise.

  • Fit a food processor with a shredding blade (or use a box grater) and shred kohlrabi bulb and turnip.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, peanut oil, honey, and sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Add scallions, kohlrabi leaves and bulb, and turnip to bowl; toss to coat. Let stand at least 15 minutes.
