Although today it doesn’t look like it: Spring is definitely on its way! I’m really excited not only because I lust for color and warmth and long days but because with the changing season come fresh vegetables. Perfect for my Home Office Lunch challenge. Yes, it is a challenge: creating recipes with seasonal produce that are made in about 20 mins? Not the easiest task. That’s why the following recipe is so genius (excuse my showing-off here): a cream soup made in 15 mins. It’s possible. Try for yourself!
For today’s recipe I have something really special prepared: Radish leaf soup with a side of radish sandwich. Using the whole vegetable for one meal?! Yes, please!
All you need is:
– a bunch of fresh radish leaves
– 3 small potatoes
– 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
– 1 small onion
– 1/2 teaspoon stock seasoning
– a pinch of salt
– a pinch of pepper
– a pinch of dried chili flakes
– 3 radishes
– 1 tsp of sour cream
– 1/2 l of hot water
– 1 Tbsp cream cheese
– 2 pieces of bread
Peel the potatoes and grate them roughly. Cut the onion into small pieces. Preheat the oil in a pan and add the onion and potatoes. Meanwhile cut the radish leaves into small pieces and add to the pan. Stir well and add the stock seasoning and 1/4 l of cooking hot water. Let it simmer for 2 mins and add the rest of the water. Simmer for another 2 mins. Blend the soup and season to your taste.
Meanwhile cut the radishes into small pieces. Spread the bread with the cream cheese and add the radishes and season with a little salt and pepper.
Put the hot soup in a bowl and decorate with the sour cream and cut radishes. Enjoy!
Any fresh vegetables you’re looking for to cook with? I’m waiting on asparagus. I already have a great recipe in mind.
Now. Carry on!
