Chef's Note: Kohlrabi is a member of the cancer preventing cruciferous family.
It looks like a pale green or red purple beet with dark green leaves and a large single root.
When selecting kohlrabi, look for small ones, because large specimens often have a woody texture.
Make sure there are no soft spots on the bulbs or yellowing of the leaves.
