What Is Beef Radish Soup?
This easy beef soup removes the carrots and potatoes in exchange for low-carb, nutrient-packed radishes, onions, celery, and cauliflower all cooked with some stewing beef in a savory broth. It’s the perfect cold-weather entrée, especially after a long day of work or school!
How To Make Beef Radish Soup
Radishes in beef soup might sound a little unconventional, but it’s really a great way to enjoy a flavorful meal without the carbs, allowing you to keep that waistline trim!
- Saute the beef pieces in small batches (see recipe below).
- Add onions & garlic and cook until they are tender and fragrant.
- Add the broth and seasonings, scraping up the flavorful bits that stick to the bottom of the pan.
- Bring to a boil then simmer for about 45 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer until veggies are tender.
This delicious soup is nothing short of amazing. Sample and adjust the seasonings according to your preference and enjoy!
What To Serve It With
In keeping with the low-carb theme:
- a crispy salad would be a perfect complement to this beef and radish soup.
- steamed veggies like zucchini, squash, or broccoli with cheese sauce make excellent sides, too!
- add a fun appetizer like crisp zucchini fries, bacon wrapped cabbage, or even a simple fresh veggie tray with low carb dill dip for something completely different.
Can You Freeze The Leftovers?
Almost all soups can be frozen, but in this case, the radishes might be a little soggy. If you are going to reheat beef and radish soup, think about tossing in a few fresh radishes and some cauliflower rice to give it a little more bulk. Adjust the seasonings again with salt and pepper or some extra garlic and thyme!
