White Radish Soup Recipe

I was really knocked-out yesterday. The high fever coupled with flu and cough weakened me so much that I had to cancel my classes and just stay home to recuperate. I refused to see the doctor as I think this is just the normal fever, flu and cough.

I lost my appetite and all I could think of was how nice it is to have a bowl of hot soup in front of me then.

So last night before going to bed, I dumped all the vital ingredients of a good white radish soup into the slow cooker and let it simmer.

This morning when I woke up, the entire house smells of fart! That only means the white radish soup is ready! Yee… ha!

A bowl of hot soup ready to be consume. Bliss!

Here’s the recipe for Chinese White Radish Soup:


* Chicken bones

* White Radish (Peeled and cut into chunks)

* Red Dates

* Carrot

* Peanut

* Water


1. Put water into a pot and bring to boil.

2. Add ingredients into pot.

3. Simmer

4. Season to taste

5. Serve hot

Here’s also the link to another of my favourite soup – Old Cucumber Soup.

P/S: So they say it is not advisable to cook RADISH and CARROT together. How true is this? Anybody knows the real reason for it?

    wah.. slurppppp

    My kids love radish soup too, but I heard some said radish cannot mix with carrot. Don’t know how true it is.

    • //

      The believe is that the white radish will destroy the vitamin in the carrot. But heat itself will destroy the vitamin lah.. I add carrot as I like the taste :D

      heard about not mixing radish with regular carrots too. so i try not to cook it this way…

      when coughing, i avoid chicken. initially i thought was old wives’ tale until one fine coughing season, we actually abstained from chicken and voila…hubster and i recovered after 3 days only for it to return coz we ate chicken rice when we thought the cough was getting better. lol.

      this soup now makes me crave it too. gonna make some tonight for my breakfast too.

      ahem…the soup does no smell like fart! Merryn!!!

    Yummmmmm!!!! I like! But people say…mustn’t eat if on medication as it is a detoxifier and all the meds will be “washed” away.

    Was searching for why cannot cook carrot with radish.. and your post show up. I was cooking soup with carrot and radish and my relative said cannot mixed them together…

    • //

      I was told that the white radish will ‘cancel’ the nutrients from the carrot. It seems that white radish is detoxifying so we can’t take this while on medication or after a hearty ginseng meal either .
