How to Make Kohlrabi Noodles

Learn how to turn this hearty vegetable into the perfect pasta alternative!

Kohlrabi is a cruciferous vegetable in the Brassica family. (includes cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc.) Kohlrabi tastes similar to broccoli stems with a hint of radish-like spiciness. When it's cooked, it typically has a more mild flavor than when eaten raw. They're the perfect vegetable to spiralize because they hold their shape well when cooked.

Using a sharp knife, cut the top off of the kohlrabi bulb.

Cut the root end off the kohlrabi bulb. Be careful, the root end is typically harder to cut through.

Peel the outer skin of the kohlrabi with a vegetable peeler.

Set up the spiralizer. Put the root side of the kohlrabi towards the handle of the spiralizer so that you start spiralizing the top of the kohlrabi. The root side can be too hard to cut through.

Turn the handle clockwise to cut the kohlrabi with the spiralizer.

Keep going until the whole bulb has been spiralized.
