Kohlrabi Schnitzel

Kohlrabi or cabbage turnip is used a lot in Germany to cook. So when I went vegetarian years ago my dad (who’s the one that cooks at home) was looking for alternatives to the traditional Schnitzel. I have to admit, later we found that seitan for example does a better job in copying the traditional, but nevertheless this is absolutely delicious. Serve it with cooked salt potatoes or roasted oven veggies and you have a full meal or just snack on it like this!



  • 1 kohlrabi
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup plant-based milk or beer
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • salt


Peel the kohlrabi, cut it in slices and cook in boiling water with some salt for about 8 minutes. In that time, you can prepare the batter. Mix therefore the flour, plant-based milk or beer, and the garlic powder with a little bit of salt to your taste . When the kohlrabi are cooked enough put them in the mix and coat it with the mix. Then put in the bread crumbs and turn it in there until it is fully covered with the crumbs. Heat some oil (enough to cover the pan bottom completely) and fry them golden brown in it. Enjoy!
