Radish and lovage soup

radish and lovage soup July 15 1

We recently had a glut of radishes, given to us by a friend in an exchange for a cockerel, a huge amount of lovage in the herb garden, and a lake of whey, a by-product of cheese-making. We decided to use all these ingredients to make a rather unusual soup. It was more a case of make-it-up-as-you-go-along.

We also had a few potatoes and tomatoes to add to the soup. In addition, we had some of our cottage cheese and chives which I had slightly over salted.

The end result was a rather thick, cheesy soup, more like one of those fondants people had back in the 70s. It didn't go into my top 10 best-ever meals but at least it used up a load of surplus ingredients.
