This Kohlrabi Schnitzel Burger is super delicious! It tastes kind of summery – despite the Thousand Island sauce. Kohlrabi (or german turnip or turnip cabbage) is the base for these burgers. Kohlrabi Schnitzels are great with potatoes or rice, but they make an awesome burger patty as well!

For the Kohlrabi Schnitzel:
  • 1 larger Kohlrabi
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose-flour (you can sub it with besan or soy flour)
  • 1 teaspoons paprika powder

  4. Meanwhile mix the flour with three tablespoons of water and add ½ teaspoon of salt & ½ teaspoon of paprika powder (it should have an egg-like consistency, add more water or flour to achieve that).
  5. Pour the breadcrumbs on a plate and add ½ teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of paprika powder, also add in crushed pumpkin seeds and the sesame if you like.
