Radish & Leek Soup
I have recently been introduced to using radishes more often in my cooking, and have really enjoyed playing around with them in my kitchen over the last few weeks this spring!

Radish & Leek Soup
Radishes have a pretty great list of benefits, including being a great source of vitamin C. Something we could all use a little more of!

Since radishes take on a potato like texture once cooked, I decided to try making a soup similar to how I make potato soup – with lots of leeks and garlic! Leeks have a beautiful, sweet onion-like taste once cooked. And since the onion taste is quite subtle, you can put a lot of leeks into the soup to soak in all of their benefits without overpowering the flavor.

I love soup purees for so many reasons. And the biggest one being that this momma doesn’t have a ton of time to gorgeously chop pretty veggies all day. Making a blended soup means I can do a quick chop or pulse in my processor because they are all gonna get pureed anyway! Busy momma can also just sip from her mug while she is going about her day. Soup purees are great starter soups for little ones as well!

As much as I really delighted in this soup this weekend, I was even more delighted in how cost effective it was! Lunch for just pennies! I’m all over that! I served our soup for lunch in mugs with a side plate of raw cheese, fruit, and crispy nuts.

Radishes contain a lot of Vitamin C, so they make a perfect addition to soup.

Servings 8 servings


  • ¼ cup friendly fat to cook in butter, coconut oil, lard, bacon grease

  • 6 cups whole radishes coarsely chopped (I pulsed them in my processor! Fast!)

  • 2 quarts chicken bone broth Homemade broth preferable
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper Optional, but the kick of heat is so yummy!
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste


  • Saute the leeks, radishes, and garlic in the butter on medium/high heat for about 15-20 minutes. Add a few big pinches of sea salt to bring out their juices to sweeten.
  • Add the bone broth, and bring to a simmer for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Puree with an immersion blender or in a blender. Add sea salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.

  • Double up for your freezer stash! Packs up great in a thermos for school or work!
  • I wish I had had some scallions to garnish the top so that might be something to have on had too! Maybe a dollop of sour cream?!
  • Making your own bone broth is so satisfying! Not only does it taste way better than store bought so your soup will taste so much better, it is literally packed with minerals and healing!
  • If you don’t have an immersion blender…oh! You must! You just must! I use it in my kitchen weekly – you will love it!

Keep me posted if you give it a try!

    Stunning dish! This soup is so flavorful and creamy. We love it and will make it again! I belong to a CSA and use that produce over grocery store produce so I had to use daikon radish instead of the normal radish and was over-the-moon with the results. So lovely. Side note – I also appreciate how your recipe posts are straight to the point instead of 5 pages of other stuff before I even get to the recipe. Thank you Renee!
