What is kohlrabi?!

Kohlrabi is a vegetable in the turnip family. It makes the perfect replacement for potatoes when following a ketogenic diet because it is low carbohydrate. In fact, it has fewer carbs than cauliflower per serving. It has a hard outer peel that must be removed before eating as the peel does not break down, even with cooking. Kohlrabi has a crisp texture similar to an apple and a very mild flavour similar to that of a turnip or radish.

Tips for keto cooking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes. Like cauliflower instead of perogies and radishes instead of potatoes.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats. Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like this Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole, Taco Bake and Hamburger Soup, and use them in your weekly rotation.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools (aff links) like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
