Radish is the New Redskin (Coining that, as of now!) ;)

So, I didn't believe it, when my Paleo/Keto cousin, Sarah, told me radishes are all the hit for potato-swappers who are trying to reduce carbohydrate intake. Yes, I rolled my eyes. But... I had to try it for myself. Um, baked radishes taste incredibly similar to baked potatoes. Boiled ...

Leek with Potato Soup (mild and kid-friendly)
