3 leeks
3-4 medium-large kohkrabis
1/2 medium onion
2 stalks celery
butter, or butter-flavored margarine
salt and pepper
opt. 1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1. thinly slice the leeks into rings
2. cut up kohlrabi into slices or small cubes, depending on preference
3. chop the onion and celery
4. in a dutch oven, saute the leeks, kohlrabi, onion and celery in the butter until the leeks become soft.
5. add water to fill the pot half way to the top.
6. add salt and pepper, and "kosher" salt, if desired
7. simmer for 40 minutes.

OPT: Tie a bunch of celery tops together and cook them with the soup; these can be removed easily later, if desired. For a traditional, creamy soup, process about half of the soup in a blender until very smooth, mix back into the soup and correct seasoning; garnish with chives and paprika.

NOTES:
*I've left the celery leaves in and processed them together in the blender with half the soup; the resulting color is an elegant, delicate lime green!
*Most times I serve the soup as is, without making it creamy.
*This recipe freezes well.

Hope you enjoy.

Hi, Molly!

Wow, thanks for giving some attention to this lonesome 'ole recipe - it really is wonderfully tastey, and so reminiscent of potato soup! And, as a "vichyssoise", you can, of course, enjoy it cold.

Let us hear if you decide to grow this veggie - the birth of a kohlrabi!
