Kohlrabi (Knol-Khol) Soup
Kohlrabi (Knol-Khol) Soup

A Highly Nutritious Winter Soup

Kohlrabi (knol khol) is a mildly sweet vegetable known for its fiber and crunchiness. This soup is moderately thin, garlicky, and appetizing. I used a small amount of cinnamon and clove to get a nice punch. Tomatoes, onions, and garlic are the other ingredients used here.

Kohlrabi is notably rich in dietary fiber and vitamins. It has few calories, little fat, and no cholesterol. It is a good source of vitamin C, other vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

This soup is a winter winner that can keep you warm for hours. This puree is a complementary blend of veggies and spices.

Here, I share the detailed recipe with you.

      Thank you for the recipe. I was not familiar with kohlrabi before I came across the seed packets several years ago; it has grown well in my garden and this reminds me to sow the seeds soon.
