Hi Shaun! Congratulations for your blog. So, I promised a recipe... And here it is! You probably know that kind of stuff, but I discovered it yesterday. I grew radishes in my garden, and I had to remove half of them to allow the other ones to get bigger. So instead of wasting them, I made a soup (a “velouté” in French) with the leaves. Honestly I wasn't expecting much about it, but in the end it was really good. At least for french taste, I hope you'll have time to try it and like it ^^
-200 grams of radish leaves
-2 medium-sized potatoes, cubed
-1 leek, white part only, chopped
-1L water + bouillon cube or vegetable broth
-1/4 cup dairy or cashew cream
-salt and pepper
-3 tbs olive oil or butter
Wash the leaves and dry them
Cut 2 potatoes and a leek (only white part) in small pieces
Saute the leaves, potatoes and leek in olive oil/butter for around 3 minutes. Add pepper.
Add 1L of water with one bouillon cube (or vegetable broth)
Warm it up until boiling, then cover, lower the heat and let it boil gently for 20min.
Blend the soup until it becomes uniform.
Add a big spoon of cream!
Check the salt/pepper. My wife and I really enjoyed it, and if you never tried, I hope you will like it. Enjoy!!
