Kohlrabi, also called cabbage turnip, is a member of the turnip family. The pale green or purple-white bulb tastes similar to a sweet, mild turnip. Both the bulb and greens are edible. The bulb can be sliced raw into salads, used in stir-fries, or steamed. The smallest bulbs are the most tender bulbs. Purchase kohlrabi that is firm, heavy and unblemished.
Dark sesame oil is made from toasted sesame seed. Its rich, nutty taste adds an accent to Asian-style recipes. The oil doesn’t keep well, and must be stored in the refrigerator.
