What is your favorite way to make radish soup?

Besides hotdishes, radish soup sometimes shows up at church suppers in MN. So what is your favorite radish soup recipe? Mine has chicken stock, 1/2 + 1/2 cream, white wine, green onions, radish tops (or watercress), radishes, and lavender in it.

Aye Aye Aye Lucy! Never cooked a radish in my life, but I'm willing to see what you good cooks come up with. Thanks for the nudge, CWS.

Here are some links to recipes for the same:

Red Radish Soup Recipe (note: the author of the book this recipe was in lives in MN)

Chinese White Radish Soup | Delicious Asian Food

Ad-Hoc Radish Soup Recipe

The Chef In My Head: Spectacular European Vacation & Creamy Radish Soup

I'm thinking of experimenting with the usual way I make it to make a cold soup...maybe swap out the 1/2 and 1/2 with greek yogurt or buttermilk, but I'd probably have to leave out the white wine....I haven't decided yet.

I toss radishes (winter and summer radishes) in stirfry all the time.

I plant radishes every 10 days (I like planting a variety of colors--purple and white--I think they are called watermelon radishes, pink and white ones, icicle, and then late July I start with the winter radishes).

Here's a link to a cold radish soup using buttermilk.

Chilled Radish Buttermilk Soup Recipe at Epicurious.com

Don't forget you can eat the greens in salads or make a soup from those as well. Radishes grow so fast, but other than salad...what to do with them...I'm going to try freezing some radish soup this summer without the cream or wine added...add those after I thaw the base...

I never had cooked radishes until 10 years ago. They are great roasted, steamed, or boiled too. Add a little oil or butter, seasoning, they taste more like a turnip/potato than the hot taste you find when they are raw. I'll be trying the radish soup, thanks CWS

I started to notice that Asian recipes often include radishes and so stretched my mind about how to use radishes...in many places, cucumbers are also cooked. I still prefer raw cucumber...

I think I learned about cooking radishes from an Australian cook, certainly no one around here eats them anyway except raw, soaked in salt water, and cold.
I haven't tried cooking cucumber, mostly just pickling them 11 different ways.
