Yes, I grew up eating kohlrabi, also known as a German turnip. It tastes like a mild version of broccoli and has the texture of an apple. I suppose it was part of my childhood diet because it is available year-round— at the grocery store, even. While my mother prepared it simply—sliced and drizzled with lemon juice—I prefer a slightly more interesting take, paired with cabbage and tossed in a delicious sweet-tart dressing.
