  • 2 kohlrabi
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ cup grapeseed or vegetable oil (enough for ¼-inch depth in a large skillet)


  1. Cut the leaves off the kohlrabi and peel the bulb. Peel 1 carrot. Shred the vegetables in a food processor, or by hand using a grater. Squeeze the shredded vegetables in a tea cloth (or with your hands) to remove moisture, then add to a medium bowl with 1 egg, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne. Mix to combine.
  2. Place 1/2 cup oil in a large skillet (enough for 1/4-inch depth). Heat the oil over medium high heat, then place small patties of the fritter mixture into the oil. Fry on one side until browned, then fry on the other side. Remove and place on a plate lined with a paper towel to drain excess oil.



  • 1 cup chopped (small / Kirby type) cucumber 
  • 3/4 cup sour cream I used light
  • 1 tablespoon heaping mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 green onions chopped (white and light green parts only)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Milk if needed to thin the dressing


  1. Place all ingredients, except the milk, into a blender or small food processor and blend until smooth. Depending on the moisture content of your cucumber, you might need to add a splash of milk to thin out the dressing slightly.
