Nutritional values

The kohlrabi leaves contain about twice as many vitamins as the tuber, which is why they are included here in the kohlrabi soup. Potatoes and kohlrabi provide all family members with about half of the potassium they need daily.

If you do not want to serve the cheese toast in the kohlrabi soup, you can grill it briefly and serve it separately.
