- 25 g Butter
- 2 pc shalotts finely diced
- 2-3 pc Kohlrabi

- 70 ml dry white wine
- 200 ml vegetable broth
- 150 ml cream or soy cream or coconut milk

- 25 g Butter I use cold butter to mix up the kohlrabi soup
- 1-2 tsp truffle oil white truffle oil
- 1 bunch chervil chervil harmonizes with truffle oil
- Cut the kohlrabi just under the green to form a lid. Use a ball cutter to hollow out the tubers and leave a thick edge. I usually hollow out two kohlrabi and take a third kohlrabi peeled for the soup.
- Sweat the cut out kohlrabis pieces and the chopped potatoes and shallots in the butter for 10-15 minutes until colourless.
- Deglaze with the white wine and add the vegetable stock. Bring the soup to the boil, then slowly pour the cream into the boiling soup. Note: The cream cannot flocculate if made in this way! Season the soup with salt, pepper and nutmeg and simmer gently for another 5 minutes.
- Mix the kohlrabi soup with a hand blender, either strain or leave it with fibre.
- Refine the soup with truffle oil and mix with the cold butter until foamy at the end. Pour the kohlrabi soup into the prepared kohlrabi and serve quickly.
- Optionally you can serve the soup with roasted bread cubes, further variations of the soup can be found above in the article.
