“Nothing is better during the cold winter months than a savory bowl of homemade soup. Beef and vegetable are among my favorites, so I really had fun tweaking my recipe to include ingredients from the list. While the ketchup and green pepper added a nice point of flavor, my personal favorite addition was the red radishes. They worked wonderfully as a replacement for my usual choice of turnips. They added a delicious spiciness and crunch and I will be using them in cooked dishes in the future!”
