1. Gently fry the kohlrabi, onion and garlic in butter or oil over a medium-low heat for a few mins.
2. Add the spuds and stock and simmer till the veg are soft enough to whizz up. Pop the veg and parsley in the blender. Let the veg cool a bit first as the pressure from the steam can make the lid blow off
3. Purée till smooth. Transfer it back to the pan to heat up. Taste. Season with salt, pepper and a touch of lemon juice and zest, and perhaps some nutmeg.
4. Serve with a dollop of crème fraîche, a bit more fresh parsley and even some crispy pancetta or little bits of bacon, if you fancy.

The soup tastes amazing! My family loved it! I left out the optional ingredients and used leeks instead of onion as I had lots. I could eat this every other day. The kohlrabi flavour is quite strong but we like it a lot. I would recommend this to everyone

Simple but very tasty, Hubby wolfed it down, will definitely make it again.


Not bad at all - it was the only non-salad thing I could find to do with kohlrabi. However, I'm not sure I'd bother again - there are a lot of other lovely soup recipes out there, and I'm not sure this was quite special enough to merit a repeat.
