Categories: herbs, soups, spring


  • sliced red radishes 2 cups
  • unsalted butter 1 stick (1/2 cup)
  • flour (1/2 cup)
  • white wine 1 cup
  • cream 2 cups (I used part creme fraiche, because I had some)
  • milk 2 cups
  • lavender a few sprigs


  1. Melt the butter in a soup pot.

  2. Add radishes and cook slowly for 5-7 minutes. Whisk in flour, and stir well, making a roux.

  3. Stir in wine and cream and milk to combine.

  4. Blend with immersion blender (easiest) or other method, until smooth.

  5. Add lavender and simmer 30 minutes. I added salt and white pepper-it didn’t need much of either.
