Cream of Kohlrabi Soup

Cream of Kohlrabi Soup


Some of the kohlrabi bulbs I brought home became baked kohlrabi kofta balls and oven-roasted kohlrabi "fries". And the remaining kohlrabi bulb became this easy-to-make-on-a-weeknight delicious Cream of Kohlrabi soup.

I love the pressure cooker for cooking certain foods. While there are a lot of studies (and myths) floating about regarding loss of nutrients and picking up harmful chemicals in pressure cooking, one has to do one's own research and figure out what makes sense.

Making soups and cooking beans in pressure cooker is something I've made peace with a long time ago. When veggies are cooked in stock/liquid and the liquids are retained in the soup, I am satisfied that nutrient-loss is not alarming enough for me to reconsider at this time. The whooshing whistle of the pressure cooker annoys the kids, but, it is almost music to me. Almost.

Simply chop the onions, garlic, kohlrabi, chilies and pressure cook in vegetable broth with favorite herbs and seasoning. Then, puree it, right in the pressure cooker with a hand blender. Stir in some fat free sour cream or beaten Greek yogurt for a distinct flavor - allow to cool a bit before stirring this in so as not to curdle it. Or, if adventurous, can stir in heavy cream and grated cheeses, simmer gently to a thick consistency.

Ingredients
1 large kohlrabi bulb, cut into smaller chunks
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
4 to 6 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 Tablespoon grated ginger
2 seeded jalapeño or Serrano chilies (optional)
4 cups vegetable broth
herbs and seasoning: thyme, parsley, marjoram, even shiso or other favorite herbs
salt to taste

For creaminess:
I've used any combination of grated white cheddar with cream cheese and a little bit of heavy cream
, maybe some thick Greek yogurt and sour cream beaten lightly, stirred in after cooling a bit....
