Kohlrabi, Beet, and Cauliflower with Smoky Maple Tempeh and Corn-off-the-Cob (No Added Fat)

I had some kohlrabi that I decided to cook. It looks a bit odd but is a healthful vegetable to eat. This is what I did.

  • 1 kohlrabi, peeled with top and bottom removed, and then cut into 3/8" cubes (approx. 2 1/3 cups)
  • Medium beet root (I used golden beet) peeled with top and bottom removed, then cut into 1/4" cubes (approx. 1/2 cup)
  • 10 ounces cauliflower florets (I used one package of frozen mixed cauliflower)
  • 2t finely (1/8" or so) chopped basil
  • 1/2 t (or to taste) salt
  • 1/4 t turmeric
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup onion cut into 3/8" cubes
  1. I put all of the ingredients except the onion into my Instant Pot pressure cooker and cooked for 3 minutes on high pressure.
  2. After a few minutes, I slowly let out remaining pressure and served; I was going to add the onion - but forgot!
I also made some corn-off-the-cob with a bit of onion and cooked, with no added oil, some smoky maple tempeh on a cast iron pan.


The main course was good even without the onion. The beet was particularly good. The kohlrabi didn't contribute much flavor to this dish.

Ideas for the future

I should remember the onion! The cauliflower was too soft and clearly needed much less cooking.
