Kohlrabi: what it is and what to do with it! RECIPE!!!

According to Wikipedia, "Kohlrabi is an annual vegetable, and is a low, stout cultivar of cabbage. Kohlrabi can be eaten raw as well as cooked. Edible preparations are made with both the stem and the leaves."
At the #FlintFreshMobileMarket we know it as a great conversation starter because many people have never had Kohlrabi...and if they have (often times in stir fry dishes or egg rolls) they thought it was cabbage! 
Kohlrabi is an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is just what we need to help us to stay healthy during these cold Michigan winters! 
If you are interested in trying Kohlrabi you can pick some up from the #MobileMarket tomorrow at our indoor site located at the Neighborhood Engagement Hub, 3216 Martin L King in Flint from 10am-2pm. We have listed a delicious winter soup recipe that is perfect to try while enjoying the season!!!
