“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.”

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium-low heat. Cook and stir onion in melted butter until soft, about 10 minutes. Add kohlrabi; cook and stir another 2 minutes. Pour vegetable broth and milk over the onion mixture. Add bay leaf. Bring the mixture to a boil, place a cover on the pot, and reduce heat to low; cook at a simmer until kohlrabi is tender, about 25 minutes.
  2. Remove and discard bay leaf; allow the soup to cool slightly. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway. Pulse the blender a few times before leaving on to puree. Work in batches until all soup is blended. Return pureed soup to stockpot; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle orzo pasta into the soup; cover the stockpot and simmer until the orzo is tender, about 10 minutes.

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!

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!

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!
