"This is a simple but hearty dish. It's similar to cream of broccoli soup only much better! My husband loves this soup so much he planted kohlrabi in our garden; it looks like a small green turnip. The taste and texture of kohlrabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter. Serve with your favorite bread."

kohlrabi, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 1/2 cups
2 1/2 cups
salt and ground black pepper to taste
uncooked orzo pasta
As far as cauliflower and kohlrabi soups go--this is probably 5 stars. I used chicken base instead of vegetable base (boullion) and also used 2 lbs of kohlrabi and 3 1/2 cups of each milk/broth. 1 huge onion and 2 green onions dash of lawry's and pepper and I thought it was great! Didn't have orzo on hand. Blended it (after slightly cooling) with my immersion blender (while still in the warm/hottish pot) and skipped dirtying the big blender. Great soup!
This tasted delicious, but the broth was very thin. It may have just needed more kohlrabi, but I think next time I would add a couple tablespoons of flour. Overall, this was a very tasty way to use the kohlrabi from our CSA box. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I make this soup in huge batches using huge Kohlrabi! Nobody buys the big ones (softball or larger), but they work well for the soup. Use a strainer after you blend it to get any remaining strings of fiber out!
So delicious! The only thing I would recommend is making sure to peel the kohlrabi down to the softer white part - don't leave any fibrous bits cause they don't go away even in the blender.
Yum! I needed a recipe to use of Kohlrabi, which we had never had before. I followed the amounts in the directions, but had to adjust slightly based on what I had in the house. I added a cup of diced celery with the butter and onion and sauteed these together. I mashed the kohlrabi after cooking it in the broth mixture (for company, I'd puree--but it was fine with a bit of chunky texture for us). I used 1 cup of skim milk powder to 2 and 1/2 cups of water instead of milk (didn't have any reg. milk). Skipped the orzo (didn't have that either), but we truly didn't miss it.
Delicious! Used less of the liquid ingredients; we like our soups thick. Added some garlic powder. Sea salt instead of regular salt. When all ingredients were simmered soft; used a hand blender to blend. Then added a large handful of fresh spinach. Did not simmer any longer. Did not add any orzo pasta. My husband loved it! Now a family favorite...thanks for sharing!
Shred cheese and sprinkle on top. Delicious!
This was way more enjoyable then I thought kohlrabi could be. Made it by the recipe with one change. I added fresh squeezed lemon in the bowl before I served it. I think it added just the right about of zing.
