Preparation Time

Cook Time

Kohlrabi Soup

25 g butter
2 pc shalotts (finely diced)
2-3 pc kohlrabi
1 pc potato
70 ml dry white wine
200 ml Vegetable broth
150 ml Cream (or soy cream or coconut milk)
2 pinch nutmeg
4 pinch Salt
2 pinch Cayenne pepper

Decoration und Tips for Supplement

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.
