Daikon Radish Soup for the Sick (recipe)

Daikon radishes

Happy Thursday, everyone! I’ve been incredibly busy lately, and feeling guilty about not blogging more, but nothing slows you down to a screech like a sick kid.


My poor daughter is six today, and home sick for the second day in a row. This is the problem with winter birthdays–the odds of being ill are pretty high compared to the rest of the year.

BUT it did inspire me to make homemade soup (usually a pretty good remedy), which is smelling fantastic. Want the recipe? Here you go:

Homemade Soup

Daikon Radish Soup de Jour


1 tetra pack organic vegetable broth

1 yam, peeled and chopped

1 zucchini, chopped

1 white onion, chopped

1 daikon radish, chopped (about 2 cups worth)

6 carrots, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup uncooked sprouted brown rice

1 tbsp. dried oregano

1 tsp. turmeric

1 tsp. onion powder

1/2 tsp. chili flakes

salt and pepper to taste


Combine everything into a crock pot or pot on the stove, and cook. Crock pot = 4-6 hours; stove top = 1 hour. Bon appetite! If you’re sick, then get well. If you’re not, then stay well! xo
