Potato Leek and Radish Soup

radish greens soup

Don't throw out those radish greens. I love learning ways to use every part of a vegetable and I hate wasting, especially when the greens on things like radishes and beets are so healthy. They would work in a salad, but in this soup they were amazing. It is pretty much a potato leek soup with the added greens, but I also left out any cream many recipes call for, it really is just unnecessary.
