The kohlrabi is a much mis­un­der­stood veg­etable but it has a large fol­low­ing in many coun­tries and is known by a va­ri­ety of names. This bi­en­ni­ally-grown bulb is some­times called a Ger­man turnip or a turnip cab­bage, be­ing re­lated as it is to the cab­bage group of veg­eta­bles. In Viet­nam the bulb is known as Suhao and in In­dia and Bangladesh it is called Ol kopi. Kohlrabi may be peeled and eaten raw, or in most cases it is peeled and cooked in a va­ri­ety of dishes. My favourite Men­non­ite cook­book had a recipe and I found some oth­ers that friends had shared. •••
