In a large pot, sauté onion in oil until clear. Add salt, paprika and peas and almost cover with water. Cook for 10 min. Add chicken broth (or water), carrot, kohlrabi, parsley root, parsley and pepper. Cook until boiling. If deciding to add noodles, mix eggs and flour until the consistency of muffin batter is reached.
