Kohlrabi Stir Fry (using bulbs and leaves)

Stir-Fry Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon cold water

  • 1 cup low sodium vegetable broth

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, or gluten-free or regular soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce, use a vegetarian fish sauce if you want

  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Kohlrabi Stir-Fry Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or vegetable oil

  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced about ¼-inch thick

  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1 small bell pepper, cut into strips

  • 1.5 pounds kohlrabi, remove stems/leaves and tough end. Slice kohlrabi in half, remove/discard core (if necessary), peel and cut into chunks or slices. Then cut into thin strips. You'll want about 3 small kohlrabi (and reserve about 3 cups of leaves)

  • 1 chili pepper, thinly sliced (use your favorite variety of chili pepper)

Kohlrabi Stir-Fry Instructions

  • To make the stir fry sauce: In a small bowl, combine cornstarch with water and mix. Whisk in broth and add soy sauce, fish sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Whisk to incorporate everything. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat.

  • Once hot, add onion, carrots, garlic, and ginger. Cook, stirring often, for about 2 to 3 minutes. Note: I like to regularly stir once the ingredients are added so nothing burns or sticks.

  • Add bell pepper and cook, stirring often, for about 2 minutes.

  • Add strips of kohlrabi and cook, stirring often, for about 3 minutes. Note: If you like your veggies more tender, you can cook a little longer.

  • Add kohlrabi leaves, stirring often, for about 1 to 2 minutes until the leaves have wilted.

  • Whisk the stir-fry sauce again, then pour sauce into wok, stirring in. Bring to a simmer for 2 minutes or so. You just want to thicken the sauce a little.

  • Once done, stir in sliced chili pepper. Garnish to taste (if desired) with any of the stir-fry garnish ideas. Serve with your favorite side (it's great with rice) for more of a substantial meal or enjoy as is.
