The vegetable that is Kohlrabi

Every week, I get a text message from Dimitri letting me know what vegetables he has available and this week he had kohlrabi or German turnip, it  is  something iv looked at and never really used, it is a member of the cabbage family and has a flavour similar to cabbage heart or that of broccoli.

It is high in vitamin C 62mg per 100g as seen on Wikipedia 

On discussing with chef Michal from Slovakia who loves it how does he enjoy it he simply said raw. 
So I grated it added some of Fenns honey and mustard dressing and a squeeze of lemon juice salt and pepper and served it with cod. 

Add some grated carrot and you have a healthy alternative to coleslaw
