  • 1 small kohlrabi
  • 1 medium yukon gold potato
  • 1 T chives, thinly chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 3 T flour
  • 1 T milk (or any milk substitute)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil (for frying)


  1. Peel the kohlrabi and grate. Grate potato and mix with kohlrabi in medium mixing dish. Add chives and egg and mix to combine. Add flour and milk to make a caky batter. Season with salt and pepper. Heat oil to medium-high heat in large skillet. When oil bubbles when you flick water at it add the fritters, one heaping spoonful at a time. Flatten a little so the fritter is flat not round.
  2. Fry each fritter for 4-5 minutes on each side. Just check the doneness and turn when brown. If they are browning too fast turn your heat down. Drain on paper towel (this is when you want to salt them if you are going to again) and serve with sour cream or whatever your favorite dipping sauce might be!
