A Chef’s Tips On Making Your Soups Sing With Flavor

Radish roots and radish greens, radish cooked and radish fresh--Chef Llewellyn shares a soup that is more than the sum of it's parts.

Even in winter, even in the Midwest, radishes can often be found at local farmers market. Large white diakon radishes would be great for this soup. Be sure to use the greens, too.

On today’s show we join chef Arlyn Llewellyn in the kitchen of Function Brewing in Bloomington Indiana.

Common mistake that people make when they’re making soups at home, especially puréed soups, is they add a ton of water. And then they blend the whole thing and the vegetables end up tasting water-logged and bland. I think there’s something really amazing about tasting a puréed soup and really feeling like you’re tasting the vegetable itself.

Chef Llewellyn walks us through the making of an extraordinary soup made with ordinary ingredients–like radishes.
