Peel Kohlrabi and cut into halves. Scoop out some of the kohlrabi pulp with a sharp knife. Reserve the pulp and cook Kohlrabi halves in salted water for 15 minutes.
Cook millet in a separate pot with 320 ml of water and a pinch of pepper and salt.
In the meantime grate onion, carrots, celery and kohlrabi pulp. Heat a pan with 1 tablespoon of oil and fry the vegetables for about 3 minutes. Add the cooked millet and the sunflower seeds, season with pepper and salt and mix well. Now add some chopped parsley and a good pinch of mild paprika powder.

How to cook millet...
Add millet with the double amount of water (or a little bit more, if you want the millet to be more sticky) in a pot and bring to boil. Boil for 3-5 minutes, then reduce the heat to a minimum and cook for 12 more minutes with the lid on. Then put it off the stove and let it rest with the lid on for another 10 minutes. Mix with a fork to avoid too much sticking.
