Adapted from Alstede Farms


Step 1. 

Grate the peeled and trimmed kohlrabi on the large holes of a box grater. Wrap the grated kohlrabi in a clean dishtowel and squeeze until most of the excess moisture has been removed.  In a medium bowl, mix the shredded kohlrabi, chopped or grated onion, optional chilies or chili flakes, beaten egg, flour, coriander and salt and pepper to taste. Mix until just combined. Add additional flour by the teaspoon if the batter seems too wet (mixture should be somewhat firm).

Step 2. 

In a large, heavy frying pan, heat the extra virgin olive oil and the butter over medium-high heat until the butter stops foaming. Pour a ¼ cup of the pancake batter to the pan at a time, gently pressing down on the cakes with the back of a spatula. Cook kohlrabi pancakes until crispy and golden brown on each side.  Drain on paper towels and serve with sour cream, crème fraîche, yogurt or applesauce.
