Kohlrabi-Ginger Soup

My first time cooking with kohlrabi and I attempted an original recipe!  “Kohl,” for “cabbage,” and “rabi,” for “turnip” (Germanic)–this nutrient dense food contains 140% RDA of vitamin C, 19% RDA fiber, and 14% RDA potassium in a 1 cup serving.  Add in the russett potato, carrots, and awesome anti-inflammatory ginger and turmeric, and you have an insanely healthy soup!  Even though the ingredients are very simple, it has a unique and complex taste.  My husband actually ate the first 5 spoonfuls very slowly, scrutinizing the flavors in his mouth trying to discern the ingredients.  He didn’t guess.

Inspired by this recipe.

  1. I need to drop by your place on the days you cook these things! what kind of veggie stock do you use?

    • You are welcome any time. Since I use so much, I buy vegetable broth base powder and just add it to water. I actually pinned a recipe for homemade vegetable broth base powder that I’m going to try when my store-bought stuff runs out!

    When I was a kid, we just peeled the kohlrabi and ate it… just a smidge of salt. Same with potatoes.
