Radish and Potato Soup

Yes, you did read the title right. I made radish and potato soup. Yes, I know I normally make a lot of sweets but I have to surprise you once in a while. I will admit radishes aren't my vegetable of choice but I received a lot of radishes lately in my CSA share. The radishes had the leaves still attached and I hadn't realized the leaves are edible. When I made the soup, the kids liked it. They even had a second bowl. Just remember, this soup is very mild but comforting. Yes, I would make it again but I probably will add some sausage to it.
Radish and Potato Soup
1 Tbsp butter, unsalted
1 large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
3 large russet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 cup radish leaves
4 cups chicken broth 
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
optional garnish: thinly sliced radish

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter.
  2. Add the onion and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the potato and saute for 1 minute.
  4. Stir in the radish leaves and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add the chicken broth and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Remove cover and from heat. With a potato masher/Immersion Blender, mash for a few minutes.
  7. Stir in the milk. Season to taste and serve immediately.
