In a rondo, slowly cook the leeks in a bit of oil until softened and semi-translucent.
Add the kohlrabi, turnips, and carrots and cook until semi soft. Add the cabbage and caraway and cook until the cabbage is wilted and the scent of the caraway is released.
Season with salt and then add remaining ingredients. Simmer until potatoes are cooked through.
