What herbs go with kohlabi/swede?

So, I have a kohlrabi, and I want to make a blended soup. Any ideas for fitting seasonings? I've only ever had swede mash with Norwegian Christmas dinner of cooked, cured lamb, but that's only been with salt/pepper.
Anyone know any herbs that might go well?
Kohlrabi has such a distinctive flavor, it's hard to recommend anything more than garlic and onions to improve your puree. If you *must* use herbs, a little marjoram _or_ chervil, I think, would be in order. Of course, plenty of fresh chopped parsley as a garnish (and for fresh flavor) is also good.
Kohlrabi and swede taste different and aren't interchangeable, IMO. I find kohlrabi bland and never use it. Swede, on the other hand, is a great veg which I'd certainly add to a general veggie soup. Parsley works well. As does a little nutmeg.
