Print Smashed kohlrabi, apple & cider

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 & chopped
  • 1 kohlrabi, peeled & 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 & pepper


  1. Put the apple, kohlrabi, cider, vinegar, butter and allspice in a pan, with just enough water to cover.
  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.
  3. Add the honey and mustard and lightly smash with a fork or masher. Season to taste.
