Creamy Kohlrabi Soup


This kohlrabi soup recipe is so simple to make. My husband loves it so much that he planted kohlrabi in our garden. Kohlrabi looks like a small green turnip; its taste and texture are similar to broccoli stems or cabbage hearts but milder and sweeter. Serve this soup with your favorite bread.
