When The Farmer Gives You Radishes...

Make radish soup!

Radish soup? Whatchu talkin' about Froth?

Well, over the past two weeks, we got about a pound of radishes from our CSA. I don't dislike radishes, but this is a veggie that I, for the most part, consider a garnish. How to use it up and not have it go to waste? So I spent a few hours trolling the cooking websites and blogs, and found several recipies for radish soup. I borrowed from them all, and settled on the following:

28oz chicken broth
14 oz water
1/2 lb diakon radishes
1/2 pound red radishes
4 onions
bay leaf
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup light cream
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Slice the radishes and onions and simmer in the chicken broth, water and bay leaf for one hour. Strain the broth, return to pot. Put the solids, sans the bay leaf, in a food processor and puree. Return the veggies to the broth. Add the butter, worcestershire sauce, and cream. Add salt and pepper to taste, and heat to a simmer. Serve hot.

It was amazingly delicious!
