Helen’s Apprentice Home Cooking Radish and Vegetable Soup

Service should resume as normal next week, but here is another wee recipe from the apprentice, which I made from yellow label radishes (12p) and a mixture of vegetables, which I had to hand and leeks from the garden. This soup is also suitable for both Vegetarians and Vegans.

If you don’t like lumpy soup then blitz with hand blender in the pot or pour into a blender.
