Preparation – 15 minutes

Start by making a béchamel sauce; you can make it even simpler by omitting the onion, bay leaf and cloves from the milk. Fill a medium saucepan with water, a vegetable stock cube and a tablespoon of curry powder.

Peel the kohlrabi and then cut it into any shape you like. We chose to cut them into small wedges, but slices are absolutely fine.

Finishing the kohlrabi in a creamy sauce – 10 minutes

As soon as the water boils, add the kohlrabi pieces. Cook these in the water for around 10 minutes. You will notice that the kohlrabi will soon turn a beautiful yellow. The exact cooking time depends on the size of the kohlrabi pieces.

Drain the kohlrabi and season the sauce and kohlrabi with salt and pepper. Serve with a delicious traditional dish of braised beef and oven-roasted potatoes. Enjoy!
