Cooking rutabaga: you have to be careful.
When buying rutabaga, you should already consider a few things:
- The larger kohlrabi usually has woody spots and is therefore less suitable for cooking.
- Make sure the vegetables have no cracks in the skin and still have fresh leaves.
- You can also cook fresh kohlrabi with skin without any problem so as not to lose the valuable ingredients.
Cooking rutabaga – this is how it works
You can prepare rutabaga in two ways in the pot.
- To cook whole kohlrabi, be sure to clean it well. Also remove the leaves and roots.
- Meanwhile, bring lightly salted water to a boil in a saucepan.
- You can then add the rutabaga and take it out after about 20-30 minutes, depending on its size.
- To cook chopped rutabaga, you need to remove the roots and leaves here as well.
- Next, peel the rutabaga and cut the vegetables into random pieces. Also remove existing wooded areas.
- Boil the kohlrabi in a little salted water for about 15 minutes.
- Now the cooked rutabaga is ready to eat.
