Kohlrabi Soup

From CSA Farmers Market

<p>To make things a little healthier, I have substituted Canadian bacon for the bacon, and sometimes add other veggies, like broccoli. I&#8217;ve never removed the meat before serving the soup! In fact, I&#8217;ve floated some shaved cheese and bacon bits on top of the bowl before serving.</p>
