This Potato, Corn and Kohlrabi Chowder recipe is so good, plus it’s vegetarian! Have you ever tried Kohlrabi? We love to grill it, bake it, sauté it and of course, use it in soups and chowders.
Have you tried our Sweet Potato and Kohlrabi Fries with Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Mayo? It’s a must make. The mayo is so good that you’ll end up using it on more than just the fries! Between these recipes, they’re both our favorite Kohlrabi recipes for sure.
We’re going to share a post all about kohlrabi soon, but first, we need to share this recipe. It’s so delicious that I ended up making it twice in the past week. Our farmer’s market doesn’t have it anymore, but thankfully you can still find it in the grocery store.
Whenever we make chowder, it’s loaded with tons of fresh vegetables. The best part is that you can make this chowder recipe vegetarian. Our local store carries a vegetarian chicken broth. It tastes just like chicken broth, but no chicken, and it’s organic!
This recipe involves a lot of chopping!
- Don’t have the time to perfectly chop and want an easier way? Try using a veggie chopper, like a nicer dicer.
- Make sure you have a designated cutting board for fruits, vegetables, poultry, meat and fish.
- It’s always good to use a quality knife when working with produce, or anything that needs slicing and dicing for that matter.
The kohlrabi in this chowder becomes tender with the potatoes, and then we love the addition of the grilled corn. Fresh Jersey corn is in season right now, and we’re eating raw for the most part, but we love it grilled and in this chowder! We purchased most of these ingredients from our local farmer’s market. We love to shop local and organic whenever possible.
