have recently introduced me to use radishes most often in my kitchen, and I really enjoyed play them in my kitchen during the last few weeks this spring!
Radishes have a very good list of benefits , besides being a great source of vitamin C. One thing all we can use a little more!
Since radishes acquire a potato like texture once cooked, I decided to try to make a similar to how to make potato soup soup! – with lots of leeks and garlic leeks have a beautiful, sweet onion-shaped, once cooked. And since the onion flavor is very subtle, you can put a lot of leeks in soup soak in all of its benefits without overpowering the flavor.
I love pureed soup for many reasons. And the biggest it is that this mom does not have a lot of time to chop vegetables magnificently beautiful all day. Make a mixed soup means I can make a quick chop or pulse in my processor because they are all going to get mashed anyway! Busy Mom can also simply sip from her cup while she goes about her day. soup pureed soups are a starter for the little ones as well!
Much as in this soup really pleased this weekend, I was even more delighted profitably it was! lunch for just pennies! I am all that! I served our soup for lunch in cups with a side plate of raw cheese, fruit, nuts and crispy.
Give it a try and let me know how the family likes!
