Radish and Carrot Soup

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.

Radish and Carrot Soup

300 gm of pork ribs
1 radish, peeled and cut into pieces
1 carrot, peeled and cut into pieces
2 liter water
half tsp of white peppercorns, lightly pounded with the back of cleaver
salt to taste
chopped spring onion for garnishing

1. Blanch the pork ribs in boiling water and set aside.
2. Bring 2 liter of water to boil in a pot. Add white pepper and pork ribs. Leave it simmers for half an hour.
3. Add carrot and radish and leave it simmers under low heat for another 1 hour.
4. Add salt to taste. Garnish with spring onion just before serving.

Yum! So nourishing. I like radish in soups as well! I did a similar version with corn and chicken breast.
