Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Trim the stalks and leaves off the kohlrabi (save them for later). Peel the kohlrabi. Chop them into chunks. Pop in a food processor. Pulse till you have fine 'rice'. No processor? Coarsely grate them.

  • 2.

    Pop the kohlrabi rice in a heatproof bowl. Fill the kettle and boil it. Add enough hot water to the bowl to cover the rice. Set to one side.

  • 3.

    Trim and thickly slice the spring onions and celery. Snap the woody ends off the asparagus spears. Trim them into 3 cm lengths. Peel and grate the ginger. Finely slice the kohlrabi stalks and leaves.

  • 4.

    Thinly slice the venison minute steaks - aim for pieces that are 1/4 cm thick.

  • 5.

    Warm 2 tsp olive oil in a deep frying pan or wok. Add the venison. Stir fry for 3-4 mins till the steak strips are browned. Lift the venison out of the pan. Pop on a plate.

  • 6.

    Add the spring onions, asparagus, celery and kohlrabi stalks to the pan. Stir fry for 5 mins till the veg has just lost some of it's bite and is warmed through. Stir in the ginger.

  • 7.

    Add the venison back into the pan with any juices from the plate. Add the kohlrabi leaves. Measure out 1 tbsp brown rice wine vinegar and 1 tbsp tamari. Add to the pan.

  • 8.

    Stir fry the venison and veg together for 2-3 mins to heat everything through. Drain the kohlrabi rice. Serve the rice with the venison stir-fry.
