Shaved kohlrabi with smashed avocado, anchovies and soft-boiled eggs

This is some no-joke brain and body food! Keto superstars avocado, egg and anchovies meet the versatile kohlrabi in Seamus Mullen’s seriously delicious appetizer that’s filling enough be a meal on its own.


  • 1 avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 tbsp green chili peppers, preferably Serrano
  • 1 tbsp (6 g) fresh ginger, grated and peeled
  • ¼ garlic clove, finely grated
  • 3 tbsp sprigs fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • 10 g anchovies, fillets
  • 4 tbsp avocado oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1½ limes, the juice
  • 2 kohlrabis, cut into paper-thin slices on a mandoline
  • 1 pinch coarse sea salt
  • 2 soft-boiled eggs, peeled and halved


In a large bowl, combine the avocado, chiles, ginger, garlic, cilantro, anchovies, half of the avocado oil and half of the lime juice and mash together with a potato masher.

In another large bowl, toss the kohlrabi, the remaining lime juice, the remaining avocado oil and a pinch of salt. Arrange on a serving plate and top with the avocado mixture and the halved eggs.

Zest the remaining lime half on top, sprinkle with salt and drizzle with oil.
