Smashed kohlrabi, apple and cider

Side Serves 2 35 min
Kohlrabi will never mash into a smooth purée, so embrace this fact by giving in to a bit of texture and unevenness. Call it rustic if you like.


  • 1 apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1 kohlrabi, peeled and chopped into small dice
  • 125ml cider (we used Ashridge)
  • ½ tsp cider vinegar
  • 30g butter
  • good pinch allspice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 25 min
  • Step 1

    Put the apple, kohlrabi, cider, vinegar, butter and allspice in a pan, with just enough water to cover.
  • Step 2

    Bring to the boil and simmer for about 25 minutes, until the liquid has evaporated and everything is tender (top up with a little more water if it dries out). Turn up the heat to reduce it if you need to.
  • Step 3

    Add the honey and mustard and lightly smash with a fork or masher. Season to taste.
