Quick Sunchoke Soup with Radish and Spinach
While summer is all about icy popsicles and cool salads, sometimes our bodies just need something warm and mildly nourishing. Having cold food can be a shock to our digestive system that operates at 37 degree celcius. Therefore, a little warm treat like this quick sunchoke soup would be prefect to accompany any cold meals this summer!!
This delicious soup is so easy to make with a few simple nutritious ingredients and comes together in 15 mins. The addition of radish (watermelon, red or daikon varieties all work!) also makes the soup slightly cooling in nature so it may gently balance out the Summer heat in our bodies!
What makes this sunchoke soup so flavorful?
This soup gets its flavor from both the soy soup base and umami-rich vegetables. The soy soup base can be from (affiliate link) gluten-free soy sauce, tamari, miso paste or even a soy-less alternative, coconut aminos. They all give this yummy side dish a nice brown color instantly without simmering for long!
Vegetables used in this soup definitely plays a big part in it’s flavor profile: the sweetness of carrots and radish, the earthiness of sunchoke and the freshness from spinach. In order to get the flavor and tenderness of the root vegetables with short cooking time, don’t forget to cut them small and thin!
