White Radish, Endive and Potato Soup


Hey, Soupers! It’s Meatless Monday in our house — a New Year’s Resolution promised to the teen girl! For us, making the gradual transition away from eating so much meat is a bit easier with this white radish, endive and potato soup, ‘cause it’s pretty awesome! Apparently, we can still enjoy lemonade — even during the winter (I swear this kid watches my diet like a hawk!), so it was nice to sweeten the lemonade with @amforahome sage honey. Thank goodness for our kids, right?
