I cooked everything from this plant except for the root. I cut the leaf and the bulb into bite size.
The recipe for this kohlrabi soup is pretty simple. All you need are:
5 kohlrabi with leaf
1 cube of chicken bouillon
8 cups of water(divide half)
3 pieces hot peppers
1 tablespoon of dried onion
In a big pot, boil 4 cups of water.
Slice the kohlrabi leaf into bite size.
Cut the bulb into bite size.
Add the kohlrabi into the boiling water.
Cook for 5 minutes on high heat.
Strain the water out. I like to remove the bitterness and the earthy taste from the leaf.
Add the remaining 4 cups of water into the pot.
Add hot peppers and onion.
Add chicken bouillon.
Let it boiled and then turn the stove off.
Serve hot or warm.
