Meanwhile, in a saucepan over low heat, melt butter and stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add chicken broth and cook, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in cheese until melted and smooth. Add kohlrabi and cook until heated through. Sprinkle mixture with allspice, then garnish with the chopped parsley.
