Here I show you my kohlrabi soup recipe.

Kohlrabi is a wonderful vegetable and is usually available all year round.

The kohlrabi season for domestic produce is from April to June (greenhouse kohlrabi) and from May to November (outdoor kohlrabi).

Kohlrabi has a sweet and nutty aroma and tastes less like cabbage.

Shopping tip:

Buy kohlrabi with fresh leaves, you can also put them in a salad or use them to prepare and decorate the soup.

There is already a separate recipe for kohlrabi chips.

I wish you good luck!
