Soul food, all natural, easy to make at home, perfect breakfast.

I was very surprised to find kohlrabi in the Dutch supermarket after four years of living in the Netherlands. I even had to double check with my mom if that's the vegetable I knew from Taiwan (I sent her a picture). Turns out, it is!

I immediately asked my mom to send me the Su family secret recipe for making Taiwanese pickled kohlrabi.

I am showing it here, so of course it is no longer secret now, haha.

Sorry, mom.

Everyone else, enjoy.

台式涼拌大頭菜!!住在荷蘭將近快四年的我,直到幾星期前才發現在超市看到的綠綠圓圓根莖物,竟然就是老媽以前常做來配早餐的大頭菜!為了安全起見,我還拍照跟我媽確認這個神奇寶貝,沒錯就是它!然後我立刻就跟我媽要了家傳秘方,鏘!鏘!鏘!!!因為實在太好吃了,獨享不如大家一起享用,老媽對不起,家傳秘方這就曝光囉!請大家慢用喔(噗) ***你只會需要準備以下材料: 大頭菜, 鹽巴,糖,辣椒,醬油。

1.Peel the kohlrabi as shown on the picture. 如圖示,先將大頭菜徹底去皮。
2.Slice the kohlrabi into sticks similar to French Fries. Spread one teaspoon of salt over the kohlrabi. 將去完皮的大頭菜,切成像是薯條的細條狀,並灑上一湯匙的鹽巴,抹勻。
3.Put it in a container and let it sit in the fridge for at least 7 hours. This will make the kohlrabi go soft. 再來將抹好鹽巴的大頭菜條,放進保鮮盒內,再來就是冷藏7小時。(這個步驟主要是除去大頭菜得苦澀味,並讓大頭菜變軟好入口)
4.After 7 hours, wash off the salt with water. 經過7小時候,用清水把大頭菜多餘的鹽水洗掉,瀝乾放旁邊備用。
5.Seasoning. You will need two tablespoons of sugar, two chilis (sliced), one tablespoon of sesame oil, one tablespoon of soy sauce. 調勻調味料:兩湯匙的糖.兩條辣椒切碎,一湯匙的麻油,一湯匙的醬油
6.Mix it all together and add it to the kohlrabi. Ready to eat after 30 minutes. 最後將調味料與大頭菜充分的攪拌均勻,再進冷藏30分鐘,就可以馬上享用喔!
