Radish Greens Soup

  •  3 Tb. unsalted butter (45 ml)
  •  1/3 cup diced onion (80 ml)
  • 2 bunches radish greens, cleaned (about 2 cups or 480 ml)
  • 1 large turnip, peeled and diced (about 1 cup, 240 ml)
  • 4 cups chicken stock (1 liter)
  • 2 cups water (480 ml)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (240 ml)
  • 1 tsp. salt (5 ml)
  • 1 tsp. black pepper (5 ml)
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder (5 ml)
  • 1 tsp. ground thyme (5 ml)

In a medium stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in onions, and sauté until transparent. Add radish greens, and cook until wilted, about 4 minutes. Add turnips, chicken stock, and water and cook, stirring occasionally, until turnips are tender. Force the mixture through a food mill or sieve into a medium bowl (this is easiest to do in several smaller batches). Stir in the heavy cream, and season with salt, pepper and thyme. Strain the puréed mixture again through a fine mesh sieve into the original pot. Bring soup just to a simmer over medium heat. Serve garnished with radish zest, if desired.

4 servings, each: 255 cal, 22 g fat (13 sat.), 7 g carb (1 g fiber), 8 g protein, assuming that radish greens are equivalent to turnip greens – I could not locate a reliable count). You could substitute other greens, of course, whatever you have available or ready in the garden. You can also mix several different kinds of greens.

About Karen

Less than a year after starting a low-carb diet, I was TEN SIZES and SIX HUNDRED cholesterol points lighter! Now, YEARS later, (I am into "decades" now) I STILL love and live a low-carb life! Interests I have TWO grand-angels now, a husband of 24 years, and two kids, one of whom is grown and making those grandbabies (my girl), the other still in school (my boy). I do everything for the office end of my husband's electrical contracting business, as well as everything for my website(s), and am fortunate enough to (read that: I worked my butt off so I could!) live in the beautiful Vail Valley of Colorado. When I can find a spare minute, which isn't that often, I like to ride my big bad motorcycle or ski, depending on the weather.
