These flavorful low-carb kohlrabi noodles topped with bacon, onion, and Parmesan will turn anybody into a kohlrabi lover! The natural sweetness of the kohlrabi marries perfectly with the other ingredients, for a side dish that’s a change from the usual.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 kohlrabi bulbs, trimmed and peeled
  • 4 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
  • ½ medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Cut kohlrabi into thin noodles using a spiralizer.
  2. 2 Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Brown bacon and onion, until bacon is beginning to crisp and onion is caramelized but not burning, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer bacon and onion to a small bowl, reserving 1 tablespoon bacon grease in the skillet.
  3. 3 Add kohlrabi noodles to the skillet and season with salt. Cook noodles over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until they begin to wilt down and soften, 12 to 14 minutes. Stir in butter until melted. Add in bacon and onion mixture and stir in 1/2 the Parmesan cheese.
  4. 4 Serve immediately topped with remaining cheese and parsley.

Chef's Notes

I used kohlrabi that are 8 to 10 ounces each; If there is not enough bacon grease to reserve 1 tablespoon, you can use olive oil; These also make a great low-carb alternative to hash browns; simply cut the noodles into short lengths before frying.


  1. This was great! It was my first time cooking kolhrabi and this was a big hit. My husband came back for seconds and even wanted leftovers - a rarity when it comes to vegetables. Of course everything tastes better with bacon and this was great tasting. Thank you for this recipe!
  2. So yummy! We didn't have enough kohlrabi so I added broccoli including the stems. Also grated rather than made noodles. And now, my 13 year old says kohlrabi is one of his favorite vegetables. He helped cook it.
  3. Didn't change anything. Is it as crisp as "real" hashbrowns? No but it was delicious. Will definitely make again.
