Kohlrabi and Lentil Soup

5 from 3 reviews

Delicious pairing of kohlrabi, lentils and collard greens make this an exceptionally healthy soup. Packed with nutrition, protein, and flavor it’s worth trying.


  • 1 tablespoon ghee (or butter)
  • 1 kohlrabi bulb, peeled and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup red lentils, rinsed and picked over
  • 23 cups of water
  • 34 collard green leaves, trimmed and chopped
  • Salt and seasonings to taste – I used a teaspoon of fresh lemon thyme


  1. Saute the diced kohlrabi in ghee until soft and beginning to brown. Add garlic and sauté one minute more. Add lentils, seasoning, herbs, and water. Simmer and cook about 15 minutes, until lentils are soft, but not mushy. Add collard greens and continue to simmer another 5 minutes.
