The carrot kohlrabi stew with bratwurst is great for a cold day’s dinner. In Germany we call such a dish Eintopf. If you cannot find Kohlrabi use leek which is sliced and added to the soup 6 minutes before it is done. Kohlrabi is also called German turnip and can be eaten raw or cooked. The leaves can also be eaten. It’s a great vegetable as it contains Vitamin C. This stew is an original German recipe. Happy Cooking!
