I love farmer’s markets. Not simply because they are the best source of great quality, seasonal ingredients, but also because farmers can always show you ingredients that you haven't seen or tried before. I made this soup after my regular Saturday visit to the Urban Harvest Farmer’s Market in Houston, where I found the cutest white radishes. It was Super Bowl weekend, and I (not a big fan of U.S. football) was in the mood to watch movies and eat soup. I love the contrast of the sweet, creamy texture with the peppery crunch of the radishes.
