Diakon Greens Soup

A diakon is a large mild Asian radish that begins appearing on some grocery shelves or the Farmer’s Market about October. There are numerous recipes for the white root, but I have found none for the green tops. The following is one I devised that is somewhat comparable to spinach soup.

Instructions

  1. 1In one can of the broth, bring the diakon greens, onions, garlic, and veggies to a boil. Simmer, stirring occasionally about 30 minutes or until greens are tender.
  2. 2Add the cream of celery soup and another can of broth. Stir in seasonings and optionals. Bring to boil and simmer a few minutes to meld the flavors. Allow to cool a few minutes and serve.
