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

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.
