The Verdict

A very tasty soup, maybe a tad on the bland side. That might be my fault. I ended up using the crock pot for this guy. As a result of a recently chaotic schedule, this guy simmered for a full 10 hours prior to eating. However, I thought it tasted fine. By the time the radishes were done cooking they had become soft and tender. For a moment I thought they were regular potatoes (same starchy texture without any overpowering flavor).

When it comes to the numbers, I love this meal. It has a full 11g of fiber and 26g of protein with only 2g of fat all packed into a mere 228 calories per full bowl. If you’re looking for a source of lean protein, low in fat, packed with fiber, this here is an excellent choice.

Thoughts for next time:

  • Add a bit more salt
  • I think I watered it down a bit too much while overcooking it
