I told you I am a soup freak :)

I admire the vibrant red color of radishes. Radishes are not a frequent visitor in my kitchen, but lately I’ve been trying to include all kinds of veggies in my diet. Last month, I just baked the radishes and had them with my salad. So this time, I wanted to make something different with them. Soup was the only dish I could think of and so decided to give it a shot.

After sipping a bowl of this hot Radish soup, I started admiring the veggie too. I will be trying more dishes with radishes here on out, but this soup will remain my favorite. To make this soup thick and creamy, I added red lentils and coconut milk.
