It's now a good season to get big, fat and juicy white radish. I grabbed one last week and paired it up with carrot to make it into tasty peppery soup. I played around with the carrot cutter again to get the radish and carrot shaped into star and flower. Don't you think the soup looks interesting? By the way, it tastes really sweet. I like it.
