  • 1 large kohlrabi
  • frying oil

Egg replacement

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (you can sub it with besan or soy flour)
  • 1/2 cup water add it bit by bit until you reach a thin batter consistency
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds


  • Remove any leaves from the kohlrabi and wash the kohlrabi. Cut the kohlrabi into 4-6 slices (about 1/3 inch). Peel off the outer layer with a veggie peeler.
  • In a large pot, bring water to a boil and add the kohlrabi slices. Let them cook for about 10 minutes. They should start to get translucent in the center. Then drain, place them on paper towels to remove excess water and set aside to cool off.
  • In a bowl, mix the ingredients for the egg replacement. It should have an egg-like consistency, you might have to add more water or flour to achieve that.
  • In another bowl, combine the ingredients for the breading.
  • When the kohlrabi slices are cold enough to handle, dip them first in the egg replacement, then coat them in the breading.
  • In a large pan, heat the frying oil (the bottom should be covered with oil) and add in the breaded Kohlrabi Schnitzel. Fry them on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes per side. They should be golden and crispy on both sides.
  • After frying, put them on a paper towel to remove excess oil and enjoy!
