Low Carb Kimchi Daikon Radish Soup. Now here is a healthy little soup number if ever there was one. I use daikon radish in so many things I can hardly begin to name them but here are just a few: Daikon Radish Dill Pickle Egg Potato Salad, Daikon Clam Chowder, Daikon Radish Hasselback Potatoes, and as you can see, I use them in place of potatoes all the time. If you are not familiar with this extremely versatile vegetable it’s time to begin the introduction. There are no thickeners, no sugar and no grains in this soup and I hope you are pleasantly surprised by the ease in which it is made. I’m thinking you might call it a “dump”, heat, and eat soup. Kimchi is just about one of the healthiest foods on the planet as a leader of fermented probiotics. I happen to be lucky to live close to a restaurant owned and run by a couple of Korean women. Long ago I used to eat there for breakfast once in a while but after looking at the Cameo Café Menu you can readily see why that had to stop. But, I have always loved their kimchi which they make in-house, and is what I used for the soup. The short trip was worth it.
I do have a recipe for Kimchi Chicken Thighs and when I was eating tons of kimchi I was buying (and still do from time to time) WildBrine brand which if you can get it, I think, is the best on the market. I still try to do lots of research before I put something in my mouth.
