Conspicuous Kohlrabi

Posted on Jul 4, 2022


Serves two for a rather light or one for a truly lavish lunch.

  • 1 large kohlrabi
  • 100g baby spinach
  • 8 radishes
  • 200g greek yoghurt
  • 100g blueberries
  • 100g hazelnuts
  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • half a bunch of parsley
  • half a bunch of mint
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of smoked sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of sumac
  • 1 teaspoon of coarse mustard
  • black sesame seeds
  • juice of 1 lemon


Trim off the kohlrabi’s peel and grate it to thin strips/slices with some kind of a grater. While I generally despise underutilized specialized tools - especially in the kitchen - this tool 1 did indeed do me a great service.


Wash your spinach. Thinly slice the radish while toasting the hazelnuts in a dry pan until fragrant. Very roughly chop the hazelnuts. Mix kohlrabi, spinach, radishes and hazelnuts.

In order to compose the dressing, mix the greek yoghurt, tahini and lemon juice in a bowl. You can also add the spices and herbs at this point already. The mixture might look way too thick to serve as a dressing. It still ‘works’, though.


Combine everything and season with salt and pepper. Add the blueberries at a late point in time as to not crush them prematurely.


  1. Is it a grater? Is it a slicer? Is it a plane? I’m not sure. I suddenly ‘found’ it in my kitchen. My best guess is that it’s a cheese slicer. ↩︎
