This lunch creation this week was just scrumptious. My husband had to admit (although he was expecting to not like the daikon) this soup really tasted like it had potatoes in it. The daikon radish doesn’t taste at all like radish when it is simmered in soup. Be sure to try it in your next soup, stew or seafood chowder. You’ll just be amazed! This recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins and Keto diets. It is not suitable for Primal-Paleo.

I have used regular radishes in soups for potatoes and they definitely work. I will have to try daikon as well.
I have used red ones that way, too, but I think you’ll find that daikon are even closer in texture and flavor to potatoes. 🙂
Its a little eery to see this recipe posted here today! I almost commented in our previous thread this week how I was going to buy more daikon and try it in my favorite spicy sausage, kale and potato soup and here you are posting it in a similar recipe again. It’s like you can read my mind this week. 🙂
Next daikon I buy is going in this recipe – http://www.thecandidappetite.com/2013/01/19/spicy-sausage-potato-kale-soup/ – which I bet would be awesome with your homemade sausage. My husband, who I should really say is a non vegetable eater (though I’m constantly trying to convince him otherwise), will eat two large bowls of this soup in one sitting.
No, I’m no mind reader. 🙂 I keep telling my husband that, too. He still expects me to sometimes. LOL Just drove over near Ft. Hood this week and bought a huge daikon at their big Korean grocery store. Have been experimenting with it all week. I have actually made a sausage and kale/creamy soup and really liked it, so your linked recipe sounds real good.
