  • “This was wonderful Bergy, I served it baked halibut and roasted new potatoes. It was quick and easy and the mixture of the 2 flavors, oh my. Scott loved it. I think it would go with anything. Great dish again Bergy. Its a keeper.Thanks Dancer^.”

  • “This was great. It was our first attempt at kohlrabi and we have decided we like it a lot. We also had some raw on a salad yesterday and that was good too. I am sure we will be making this again. We didn’t mash them.”

  • “Who knew kohlrabi was so sweet and wonderful!?!Thank you so much for broadening my vegetable palette Bergy.This is so good, if you didn’t tell the kids what was in it-they’d eat it.”

  • “So simple yet very tasty. I just love kohlrabi and this was a wonderful way of showcasing this humble vegetable. Thank you.”

  • “Very good! I loved the nutmeg. I used a bit of fresh ground nutmeg. The combination of the sweet carrots with the broccoli-like kohlrabi was delicious. Bergy always has great recipes!!”

  • “I added the butter and instead of the nutmeg I used dill.Wonderful!Great use of kohlrabi.”

  • “This was my first time eating kohlrabi (got in my CSA box), and I wasn’t too sure about.In this recipe, it was wonderful.If I get another one, I will totally make this again!”

  • “This was surprisingly tasty.I got two little kohlrabi from my CSA, and never having had them, I did a search here.The recipe was very easy and the flavor was very nice.I wish I hadmore kohlrabi so I could make it again.I wasn’t sure from the directions if I should peel the kohlrabi, but I did, and that seemed the right thing to do.”

  • “We were kohlrabi virgins & needed a good first recipe, this was it.The only thing I might change is the nutmeg, because I use whole nutmeg & grind it freshly it was a bit overwhelming, but that’s not the fault of the recipe.Thanks for a great recipe.”

  • “Really good. I had kohlrabi from our CSA and had never had it before. It kind of reminds me of a cross btwn brocoli and parsnips. I really liked the nutmeg in it and never would have thought of that!”

  • “I love raw kohlrabi, so I wanted to give a shot at cooked.I was very pleased with the results.The carrots paired perfectly with the kohlrabi, but I did not notice the nutmeg flavor much.Perhaps my nutmeg is past it’s expiration.”

  • “Wonderful recipe!!!I am eating this right now for lunch and the flavors are wonderful!The kohlrabi has a subtle turnip flavor and it pairs so great with carrots!I used 1/2 TBSP butter and the salt, pepper, and nutmeg just make it!!! I didn’t mash them really too much because I like texture.I threw in a few tops fronds and leaves of the kohlrabi when I was boiling to see what those tasted like and they taste like turnip greens.The flavor is stronger closer to the root of the vegetable and in the fronds and leaves.Great way to introduce kohlrabi, thanks for the recipe!!!!”

  • “This is a fairly plain rendering.It tastes nice, simple and is just the thing when a relatively bland veg is called for.In future, i’ll add some fresh herbs and jazz it up just a bit but i’ll remember this version for a meal when i want a veg which won’t compete with other accompaniments.”

  • “This was good but I don’t think it was quite what I was expecting.The flavours blended nicely and the nutmeg was a nice touch but I found it rather bland.We like both vegetables.I might try to blend them together with another stronger spice.My boyfriend said he would prefer them seperately.Thanks for posting.”

  • “I received kohlrabi in my farm share and had no clue what to do with it. This recipe was easy and delicious. Thanks!”

  • “I followed the recipe (minus the butter) and the result was pretty bland. It improved after I added some low-fat yoghurt, dill, parsley, caraway seeds and a bit of Dijon mustard. I think this recipe shoud be treated as a base – cook it as recommended, and then add things to it to improve the flavour!”

  • “Another kohlrabi newbie here!This is a great side dish – the kohlrabi seems to cut the “carottiness” of the carrots, and the carrots really enhance the flavor of the kohlrabi without overpowering it.The two compliment each other very well!”

  • “This was our first time eating kohlrobi…YUM!This recipe was very easy and tasty.”

  • “This was my first time cooking Kohlrabi and I loved this recipe!Thanks for sharing!”
