Purple, white or green, kohlrabi looks like a cartoon space ship. It’s a mild and crunchy relative of broccoli and cabbage, easy to snack on or add to a plate of vegetables and dip. It’s also a good addition to salads, spring rolls and stir fries. Celeriac and kohlrabi — two relatively unknown fall vegetables — are a good pair when cooked. They make a tasty fritter and can also be mashed with or without potatoes.
