Radish greens bring their peppery flavor to this delightfully simple creamy soup
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 medium potatoes, sliced
- 4 cups raw radish greens
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 5 radishes, sliced
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and saute until tender. Mix in the potatoes and radish greens, coating them with the butter. Pour in chicken broth. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes.
Allow the soup mixture to cool slightly, and transfer to a blender. Blend until smooth.
Return the mixture to the saucepan. Mix in the heavy cream. Cook and stir until well blended. Serve with radish slices.
