Roasted Radish and Dill Soup with Crispy Leeks

Some say soup is only acceptable during colder months- I strongly disagree. If you're an all-year soup lover, you must try this fresh spring-inspired soup!

It features a special ingredient: roasted radishes!

If you haven't tried roasting radishes yet, you MUST! Roasted radishes are nothing like raw radishes (spicy, crispy, pungent). Roasting them turns them into a sweet, mellow, potato-like jewel.

They make a delicious side as they are, but blending them yields the most creamy and silky soup. You will love it!

Overview: How to Make Roasted Radish + Dill Soup with Crispy Leeks

  1. Prepare and roast the radishes.
  2. Prepare and crisp the leeks. Set aside for topping.
  3. In a large pot, saute the leeks and garlic.
  4. Deglaze the pan and add in vegetable broth.
  5. Pour into a high speed blender, add the roasted radishes and dill, and blend on high until creamy and smooth.
  6. Pour back into the pot and stir in the coconut milk and lemon juice. Heat until warmed through.
  7. Ladle into soup bowls, top with crispy leeks and enjoy!

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup vegetable broth (or water)
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Handful of fresh dill, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 can coconut milk, 400mL (or heavy cream)
  • Juice of half a lemon, about 2 tbsp
  • 11/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
Crispy Leeks:
  • 1 medium leek, sliced (white and light green parts only)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Prepare Roasted Radishes. Remove radish greens, wash, and cut in half.
  3. Toss with the 1 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until soft.
  4. Prepare Crispy Leeks. Slice leek into small rounds. Add to colander and rinse with water to remove any sand. Pat dry.

  7. Pour in about 1/4 cup of vegetable broth to deglaze pan. Then add in the rest of the vegetable broth and a dash of cayenne pepper. Stir to combine.
  8. Pour mixture into a high speed blender. Add in the roasted radishes and fresh dill. Blend on high until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds.
  9. Pour back into pot and heat over medium. Stir in coconut milk, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Heat until warmed through.

  1. Ohh I’ve been looking for a new soup with roasted veggies. I haven’t cooked with radishes or leeks before so I’m excited! Thanks for the recipe.

    1. I hope you love it! Roasting the radishes really gives them a whole new creamy flavour and texture. So this soup almost turns out to be like a creamy potato soup. Enjoy!
