Creamy Radish Soup

Creamy Radish Soup

A delightfully unique soup that has the texture of potato soup, but with a distinctly radish taste to it. This is a great soup for those who love radishes, and might be a pleasant surprise for those who aren’t the biggest radish fan.

This recipe is pretty easy to make, much like a potato soup. But, with the addition of radishes, this soup has a different taste to it, and is a lovely, pale pink color. Topped with a little bit of sour cream, radish, and greens, this soup has great presentation!

The only specialty tools you need for this recipe is an immersion blender or food processor.

This is a perfect dish to make in early spring or summer, when radishes are everywhere!
