Radish Soup: Top to Tail

Posted on Wednesday 7 March 2012

The best light for food is daylight but our main meal may be brunch, noon, evening or midnight. We started in the light but moved towards the incandescent hours. Here, basmati as before and variations on what came before, the tofu sticks instead made into cubes and cooked not as long so they are still crispy outside but puffy inside and in the last couple minutes on the grill, added pecans to toast them. The greens back there is the same treatment as the radish greens.

I took this rustic radish soup and made it vegan.

Drain off some of the cooking liquid and set aside. Reserve some quarters of the potatoes for texture. Puree the rest of the soup until smooth. Put back in the pan.

Cook for a couple minutes.

You can use a fresh radish rosette for optional garnish

Served with low salt tricuits. They claim 61% less salt than their regular. They are 50% less salt than their rosemary and olive oil or balsamic and basil kinds. Just what’s the difference between a triscuit and wheetabix? Milk?
