Looking for a low-carb alternative to potatoes? Try Kohlrabi! One cup of raw Kohlrabi contains just 3 grams of net carbs. And it's packed with 93% of your daily vitamin C requirements! Kohlrabi or German turnip is a low, stout cultivar of wild cabbage, that is selectively bred from the same species as broccoli, kale, collard greens, and cauliflower. It has a sweet peppery flavor with a texture that's similar to broccoli stems. Kohlrabi can be cooked or eaten raw. 

Today we are serving it up raw with shirataki noodles. First, we tossed matchstick-sized Kohlrabi with tart freshly squeezed lime juice, refreshing mint and basil, and spicy red Thai chili peppers and marinated it in the fridge until the Kohlrabi absorbed all of those delicious flavors. Then we added shirataki noodles and served the Kohlrabi Noodles with sliced avocados, lime slices, and peanuts. Whether you like spicy foods or are looking to try something new, these delicious Kohlrabi noodles are all that and more!

What are kohlrabi noodles made of?
