Delicious Food from the Garden: Radish Soup


The reason I have not posted anything new is my garden.

I love my garden. And now that finally the summer has started I am not willing to miss a thing.

This year I grow a lot of things and I just love to watch how it grows. We have not only vegetables and salads, we also have apples, plums, cherries, sour cherries and grapes.


And if I am not watching me vegetables and fruits grow I play in the sandbox with my boys.

Or we play with our tents ( wigwams made by the boys aunt). Or we are 50 meters away in the open-air pools.  Or we eat fresh strawberries warm from the sun. 

Yes life is good and delicious.


If only it would be near the house, or near a functioning Toilet.



Look at this little jewels. I love the colors and believe me they taste divine. 

And since I hate to throw good food away I love to make a Radish Soup using the greens.

If you never had a Radish Soup you should really give it a try.

 

 

Radish Soup

 

2 bunches radishes, washed

1 small onion, minced

1 tbsp. butter

3/4 c. yogurt, plain

1 1/2 c. chicken stock

 

Separate the radishes from the greens, reserving both.

Cook the onion in the butter until translucent, then add the radish greens. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until wilted. Puree in a blender or food processor along with half the yogurt and half the chicken stock. Return to the heat and add the other half of the yogurt and half the chicken stock until heated through and through. Season with Salt and Pepper to taste.

Cut some of the reserved radishes into a julienne sprinkle over the top of the soup for decoration and crunch.

This looks delicious! I've been doing amazing things with radish greens, so tasty, in fact I'm planning to plant a few more squares more for the greens than the radishes. I'll give this a try on the next round.
