Thanks to your microwave oven, you can make trying new vegetables, such as kohlrabi, quicker and easier than ever. This sweet and lemony side dish is ready for sampling in less than 10 minutes.
In case you're wondering, kohlrabi is a round vegetable that tastes like a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. How do you prepare it? Cut off the top, then use a sharp knife to pull off the strips of woody peel.
To cut kohlrabi into strips, first slice it crosswise into one-quarter-inch-thick slices, then cut the slices lengthwise.
