Radish leaf soup is quick, easy, delicious and so good for you! I like to serve this soup with a crusty grilled cheese sammage and some fresh fruit, but you, of course, can eat it with whatever you like.
Ingredients
  • 3-4 cups fresh radish leaves (no pesticides)
  • ½ stick butter
  • 2 Tb flour
  • 2 cups water or stock (chicken or vegetable is good)
  • ½ cup half and half or milk (half and half is creamier)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • fresh ground salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Wash leaves thoroughly.
  2. Melt butter in a pot, add leaves, and stir for about 3 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle flour on leaves, and add water or stock gradually.
  4. Let simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Let cool. Blend (in blender or with a submersion blender) until smooth.
  6. At serving time, mix half and half and egg yolk and add to soup. Season to taste.
  7. Heat and serve.
  8. (This soup is also delicious cold.)
