Maybe I am a little bit freak-ish for loving these little red veggies but let me be honest ... it's not my love for the little red veggies as much for this delicious radish soup!  Prepare them in this creamy radish soup recipe and I am putty in your hands. Putty, I tell ya!

Every. Time.

Can you eat the leaves from radishes?

Yes, absolutely! But you want to only eat the small and tender ones. They will be coarse and gross if they get too far grown. Use them like any other green.

Should I peel radishes?

How do you get the bitterness out of radishes?

This soup recipe removes all the bitterness, completely. BUT if you are eating the radishes raw you want to sprinkle them with a bit of salt and let them sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse and taste. The salt helps bring out the sweetness.

Creamy radish soup recipe is easy to make, and a great use of the lowly radish! This radish soup will become your absolute favorite way to use radishes! You'll be filling your cart with the little veggies next time you head to the grocery store! And, you know what ... go ahead. This soup is good for you, vegan friendly, gluten-free, and all the right words. Eat it to your hearts content!

But be sure to serve it with yogurt or sour cream (obviously, if you are vegan, get the vegan sub for sour cream. Obvs :)). No really, you'll be tempted to think the addition of sour cream is not that big a deal but ... you'd be dead wrong. And when it comes to my favorite little spring red veggies, I don't want you to have a big ol' fat Loser symbol on your forehead. Use the sour cream.

  • 2 lbs radishes rinsed trimmed, and quartered
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 2 red potatoes, diced or alternately 1 cup sweet corn
  • 8 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper up to 4 teaspoons...taste and adjust
  • 3 cups milk you can use almond milk or even broth, if you like.
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1-3 teaspoons hot sauce most of the time I end up with 1 tablespoon.


  • Melt margarine or butter on medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion, radishes, corn, salt, pepper, and hot sauce in pan. Bring the butter, onion, radishes, corn, and spices to a boil, keep at a low-boil for about 30 minutes or until the radishes and onions are soft. Be careful not to burn the butter.
  • Keep the temperature on low and stir in the milk and sugar.
  • Heat until hot but not boiling.
  • Use an immersion blender or transfer (carefully!) the soup to your blender and blend the soup until creamy.
  • Serve warm with sour cream.


If you are not a vegan, I recommend using butter in place of the margarine for a richer, nicer flavor. Also, feel free to use dairy milk for the almond milk. Or even sub out 1 cup of the almond milk for 1 cup of cream.
Do serve this soup with sour cream, at least the first time!

P.S. I'm a bit of a soup Nazi (get the reference :)) and pride myself on my crazy awesome soup abilities. No seriously ... please try my gourmet mushroom soup, or roasted cauliflower soup. Those two are some of my faves of all time and can't be missed! Oh wait...maybe my African Peanut soup? Oh heck, I love soup!

    I had a couple of questions before I made this soup... Your answers were excellent... So - I went ahead and made it. Nellie - this is delicious! I followed your directions exactly as written... So good. My husband is very picky - and he LOVED it... Many who left comments about the color - are right - it is also pretty!
    Your recipes are wonderful... many, very unusual... all delicious, easy and economical! Thank you for another winner! This will also be for "company"... Great!

  2. I am so anxious to try this! I have a question:
    I am planning to use the "red" potatoes. Should they be peeled? I am wondering if the red skin should remain on the potato because they may add to the beautiful color? And, if I try it another time, using the sweet corn - does that mean corn on the cob? Or can i use canned or frozen corn, instead?.

    Thank you Janel for such unusual and delicious recipes... I have tried several of your recipes and every single one of them have been hits with my family!

    1. You can absolutely use red potatoes. Any potato will be just fine. I would peel them, however, so that when you blend the soup it's nice and creamy. Sweet corn can come frozen, as well. I would recommend going with that for the nice texture. Canned, although fine, won't have as nice of a fresh texture but totally fine in a pinch. Let me know how it turns out! And yay for your family loving them...that's high praise!
