I present the kohlrabi crisps recipe in this article. Make crisps from the leaves of the kohlrabi plant quickly and deliciously.

Have a healthy snack! Vegetable crisps are just the thing. Prepared with healthy oil instead of chip fat and with lots of vitamins.

With this snack made from kohlrabi leaves, the great news is that the whole plant is used, leaves are not thrown away and wasted.

It’s super great: These green crisps taste delicious! You can enjoy the crispy leaves as they are or use them as a topping, e.g. on the kohlrabi dish, mashed potatoes, salad…

So, now I’d like to show you how it’s done: So get into the kitchen and get to the oven. Good luck!

1. What you need for Homemade Kohlrabi Crisps

Kohlrabi used to be available only in late summer and autumn. Nowadays, most plants come from the greenhouse to the supermarket all year round.

In the past, only the tuber of kohlrabi was used. The leaves were waste or rabbit food.

Since we now know that the leaves contain many more vitamins than the kohlrabi tuber, we have expanded the menu.

Preparing kohlrabi crisps is the answer to our questions about a healthier and more contemporary diet.

For the optimal snack for you only need so much: 

You can add a little chilli to your crisps…
