Radish Leaf Soup

August 22, 2010

I can’t throw any food away, or even dump it in the compost. Most veggie cuttings make it into the bag in the freezer used for making broth. But some I try to use. Radish leaves being one. Another one where I remember having a recipe, but not finding it. So I go on the internet googling ‘radish leave soup’. Ending up with this. A typical low fat recipe, and I tried it and it is really quite fibrous and stringy and didn’t taste much. This time I googled in French and came up with soupe aux fanes de radis. It just sounded better. I made it and it tasted fantastic. But then found out that I had some mistranslation and it is a recipe for radis tops, oh la la. Whatever, it tasted great (probably just beacause its got alot of cream) and now I have a tasty way to deal with my radish leaves.

The recipe:

Fry a small onion in butter, add chopped radish leaves (not too much, I’m not even going to give a measurements, leaves just don’t measure it depends on how you compact them) and good salt. Add 3 cups of  broth. Boil. Add a good amount of cream: 1/4 to 1/2 cup?. Put all in blender. Enjoy.

Of coarse no one else in the family ate it. Too green, too healthy looking. Oh well, more for me.
