Market Basket Soup

I use kohlrabi in this soothing veggie soup. The vegetable has a mellow broccoli-cabbage flavor and can be served raw, but this is my favorite way to eat it. —Kellie Foglio, Salem, Wisconsin

    Very easy to prepare. I couldn't locate the Kohlrabi bulb so I used a Jamaican Turnip instead. I cooked for the time indicated, but it could have used thirty minutes more, or I should have diced the turnip smaller. Either way though, it tasted great and I'll make it again.

    This was very filling and fresh-tasting. My grocery store didn't have kohlrabi so I used a turnip. I also made a half batch and still had leftovers since this makes a very large batch to start with.
