Number of Servings: 8


    1 bunch radishes including their greens
    2 tablespoons unsalted high grade butter
    1 large red onion, chopped
    1 large leek, sliced
    4 perfect small potatoes (russet or yukon), cut into eighths
    1 small achovy, packed in oil and chopped
    1/4 cup flat leaf parsley
    pinch of sea salt to taste
    black fresh milled peppercorns, to taste
    3/4 cups light cream or half and half


1. Saute the chopped onion and leek in butter in a Dutch oven or braising pot.
2. Add the potatoes (peeled or not) and optional chopped anchovy. Cover with filtered water (1 inch above contents); add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and cook until potatoes are completely soft (30-35 minutes).
3. Add the fresh radish greens and chopped parsley. Simmer about 5 minutes. Let cool a bit and puree using an immersion blender or transfer to a blender/food processor.
4. Return to pot, if you have transferred to process. Bring back to a simmer. Finely chop about 1/2-3/4 cup of the fresh radishes and sprinkle with salt. Add these to the pot and cook until tender. Cut some additional raw radishes as rosettes and place in ice water in fridge for an optional garnish later if you like, either in the soup or alongside in a salad.
5. Stir the cream in to the pot, warm, but do not boil. Serve with an optional garnish of chopped parsley with a radish rosette, finishing salt and pepper to taste, and a toasted and buttered slice of artisan bread.
