Soup for supper

05Jun10

Yes, you can eat them, you don’t have to put them away: the leaves of radishes!

Make sure to use them immediately after buying a bunch of radishes – stored in the fridge they get limp and yellow. But if you use them fresh, there’s no reason to throw them away!

I found the recipe for this soup in the book “Vegetarische Köstlichkeiten aus aller Welt” by B. Rias-Bucher. I changed it a little bit as I love using onions (they don’t use it there) and due to a lack of chervil (Kerbel) in my kitchen (they use it). If you happen to have some, try it and tell me how it tastes…

For one hungry person you need:

1 onion
a little bit of oil
1/2-1 bunch of radish leaves
3 small potatoes
500 ml of vegatable stock (yes. I confess. I use instant stock.)
1-2 tblsp cream

Chop the onion and sauté it in a pot with a little bit of oil until translucent. Meanwhile wash the radish leaves, chop them and add them to the onions. Continue sautéing while you peel and chop the potatoes. Add them as well as the stock, bring everything to a boil and let simmer for about 20 minutes until the potatoes are done.

Then ask the handblender to help you to blend everything. Add the cream and season with salt and pepper; I also added a pinch of sugar.

Enjoy your soup!
