Radish Soup


Radish Soup

My friend gave me a pound of radishes to play with- a whole pound!  One of my favorite ways to eat radishes is sliced with butter and salt.  But, in this cold weather, I really crave something hot.  This soup is my take on sliced radishes with butter and salt for winter days.  In the picture above, I topped the soup with everything bagel seasoning, radish matchsticks, and scallion greens.

Ingredients

1/4 cup butter
1 lb radishes, sliced
1 small onion, sliced
2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup cream cheese
salt and pepper
toppings (optional): sour cream, black pepper, lemon wedges, toasted sesame seeds, scallions, parsley, chives, cilantro, chopped red bell pepper, etc.

Directions

1.  Heat the butter in a large pot on medium-high heat.  When its hot, add the radishes and onions.  Cook, stirring constantly, until the radishes start soften and become slightly translucent, about 8-10 minutes.

2.  Transfer the radishes and onions to a blender.  Add the vegetable broth and cream cheese.  Blend until smooth and creamy.

3.  Pour the soup back in the pot and heat on medium-high until it starts to boil.  Turn the heat to medium and let it simmer for 5 minutes.  Add  salt and pepper if needed.

4.  Serve hot.  Optional toppings- dollop of sour cream, black pepper, lemon wedges, toasted sesame seeds, scallions, parsley, chives, cilantro, chopped red bell pepper, etc.
