Vegetable Sushi w/ Kohlrabi and Zucchini


Last month, my co-worker gave me a couple of kohlrabi. I have never used that vegetable before, but the texture was so familiar. I first made some pickles, sliced thin with a peeler and marinaded in rice vinegar based marinade.

That taste and texture remind me of a Japanese turnip and daikon radish, and I really liked it. It is such a fun thing to try a new food, both cooking and tasting it.

Next thing I did was...

I added a thinly sliced zucchini too, and made two types of vegetable sushi with those pickled vegetables.
A refreshing taste; both kohlrabi and zucchini sushi have nice crunchy texture, and this is also a great vegetarian dish.
My husband said the zucchini sushi looks like a caterpillar. What do you think about that!?
