This is one of the many favourite soups my family enjoys. Commonly boiled with chicken or pork ribs, my family’s version always comes with a handful of lightly crushed white peppercorn. This is to add a little heat to balance the cooling effect white radish possess. Also apparently radish soup helps in cleansing and detoxifying our digestive system, said my mum everytime we have this soup at home.
With a touch of sweetness from the red dates and the extra kick and spice from the peppercorns, this soup is indeed a refreshing, comforting, and hearty soup everyone enjoys every now and then. Low in calories with virtually no cholesterol, these chunks of radish make for a very good dietary option for many people too.
