A trouble-free way to remove the skin of a pumpkin

Kohlrabi – a versatile vegetable
Whether fried or breaded, consumed as a vegetarian alternative to a schnitzel, as a puree, baked in the oven or au gratin, or as a power food in a smoothie, kohlrabi is incredibly versatile, and can be cooked in numerous different ways.
Green beans – a green wonder
Important note: green beans must always be cooked before being eaten, as they contain, in their raw state, phasin, a poisonous protein substance. Simply cook the beans for 8 minutes in salted water, thereby rendering harmless the phasin contained in them. The "squeak test" can also be helpful in this regard. If you hear a squeaking sound when biting into them, that means that the beans are not yet done. In that case, they will need to be cooked for a further 1 to 2 minutes.
