This delicious radish soup recipe is a cinch to whip up and uses humble ingredients, but don’t you be fooled for one little moment.

This radish soup is a rock star!

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 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.

Easy Creamy Radish Soup Recipe


  • 2 lbs radishes rinsed trimmed, and quartered
  • 1 red onion sliced
  • 2 red potatoes or alternately 1 cup sweet corn
  • 8 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pepper up to 4 teaspoons...taste and adjust
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • dash of hot sauce


  1. Combine margarine, onion, radishes, corn, salt, pepper, and hot sauce in pan. Simmer on low for about 20 minutes or until the radishes and onions are soft.
  2. Keep the temperature on low and add the milk and sugar.
  3. Heat until hot but not boiling.
  4. Use an immersion blender or transfer (carefully!) the soup to your blender and blend the soup until creamy.
  5. Serve warm with sour cream.

Recipe Notes

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!


If you have never made a radish recipe, cooked with radish, worked with radish, heck—seen a radish, here is a great article from The Kitchn with some good pointers on cooking with the little guys…

    Well, I made two pots of this soup. The first one I thought had too much pepper. 4tsp is a lot! So I made a second bat h without pepper at all. That way I could tone it down a bit. If making this soup, I would recommend that you add pepper and taste and adjust to your liking. If you have a sensitive mouth, don’t go for all 4 teaspoons on your first go! Other than that, the soup is soooo pretty! Comes out a light pink and it’s such a rare colour for a soup! I’m freezing this and will have plenty of it this winter when radishes are no longer in season :)

      Thank you for coming back and commenting! I’m going to adjust the recipe to start with 2 teaspoons with up to 4 teaspoons. Totally a taste thing, I’m sure. Isn’t it the prettiest color :). So fun!

This is SO good – I’m trying to not eat the whole lot tonight! It has just a hint of nice heat and tons of flavor. Can’t wait to try the mushroom and cauliflower soups. Thanks for such a great recipe.
