Are radish greens safe to eat?


Why yes, they are. And tasty too. I have spasms of guilt about throwing out any food, so I decided to figure out a way to use these. Radish greens are a bit too bitter and/or spicy for smoothies for my taste, but they make a great soup. After searching chowhound for general ideas and after a bit of experimentation, this soup has become my go-to way to avoid wasting organically grown green leaves.

2 tbsp of olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

1 clove of elephant garlic, chopped

1 large starchy potato, cubed but not peeled

1/2 tsp of salt

2 cups of water or vegetable stock*

chopped radish greens**

1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

1/4 cup non-dairy or dairy sour cream

Heat the oil in a medium-sized pot and saute the onion and garlic. Add the salt, potato, and water or stock and let it simmer for 5 minutes or until the potatoes are very soft. Add the radish greens and let it simmer another 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the soup cool a bit before transferring to a blender to puree. (I use an old immersion stick blender that my mom bought me for a birthday several years ago.) Stir in the nutmeg and the sour cream.

*If you use stock instead of water, you might want to skip the 1/2 tsp of added salt.

**Radish greens can be notoriously gritty and muddy. Chop them first then leave them in a large bowl of cold water while you start the soup. Give them a few swirls and pick them off the top of the water, leaving the grit to sink to the bottom.

My wife and i ended up being absolutely relieved when Peter could round up his investigations through the entire precious
recommendations he made through your blog.
It's not at all simplistic to simply choose to be releasing ideas which usually most
people have been trying to sell. Therefore we remember
we have got the writer to thank because of that. The most important illustrations you've made,
the easy blog navigation, the relationships you can help engender - it's got most great, and it's making our
son in addition to the family consider that that subject is cool, which is extraordinarily vital.
Thank you for the whole lot!
