Radish Soup

Working with a limited diet can be challenging at times. It can require creativity in the kitchen. Some days it’s fun, others days it’s not so fun. It also requires you to think about budget. A nourishing meal, that the kids will like, and doesn’t cost and arm and a leg….completely doable, right? Right!

That’s partly how radish soup made its way to our kitchen.  (And every time I say radish soup, I think I’m on Fraggle Rock…I am aging myself with that though…)

Radish Soup

I’m always looking for ways to get more veggies in our diets and this was easy.

I’ll be honest that I made my family the same soup…except they got potatoes and I got the radishes. Everyone was happy. It was a win/win situation without having to make two meals. (I’ve been doing the Trim Healthy Mama plan so I avoid potatoes.)

And I promise you….radishes cooked do not taste like raw radishes. This soup was actually sweeter than the one with potatoes. (And a bit more pink!)

Radish Soup
Author: 
 
A low carb, nightshade free, gluten free soup.
Ingredients
  • 6 cups of chicken stock (Any stock would work)
  • 2-4 tbsp. of oil
  • 1 large diced onion
  • 2 stocks of sliced celery
  • 6 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 bunches of radishes, quartered (This number can vary to how much you like)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Saute onions, garlic and celery until soft
  2. Add stock and quartered radishes and simmer
  3. Allow to simmer until the radishes are soft (I like to do this nice and slow)
  4. Salt and pepper to taste according to your taste
Notes
This would be very easy to add some shredded chicken or beans for added protein.
You can also thicken if desired with the thickener of choice.

If you are doing THM, this can be an S if you use full fat stock, but if you keep the oil cut down and use fat-free stock it would be a fuel pull.

    I love to roast my radishes with some oil, salt and onion/garlic powder… They are like little new potatoes! …Well, sorta.
    I’m so totally making this soup next week. 😀
