Radish Green Soup

We grow radishes in our garden and I was shocked to find out some years ago that one could actually EAT the fibrous leafy greens of radishes, and moreover, that they made a tasty soup! As a young girl, my grandmother said she would help her mother make this healthy - yet satisfying - soup. My grandmother said her mother made this soup during the War in Belgium in an effort not to waste any of the family's food rations. And while this recipe was born in famine-time, it continues to be one of my favorites, filling me with warm memories of generations of my mothers."


2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, diced
2 medium potatoes, sliced
4 cups raw radish greens
4 cups vegetable broth
1/3 cup whole milk
5 radishes, sliced


1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and saute until tender. Mix in the potatoes, radishes and greens, coating them with the butter. Pour in broth. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes.

2. Allow the soup mixture to cool slightly, and transfer to a blender. Blend until smooth.

3. Return the mixture to the saucepan. Mix in milk. Cook and stir until well blended.

OPTIONAL garnish with radish slices.
