Potato, Radish Greens Soup


4 medium size potatoes, unpeeled, cut in quarters
1 onion, peeled, cut in half
6 garlic cloves
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp turmeric
5 cups of radish greens
3 tbsp olive oil
Salt, pepper to taste

Boil together in 4 cups of water, on low to medium heat (lid on) the first four ingredients (use only half of the garlic amount). When done, save 1 cup of the liquid, but blend the rest until smooth. Put the puree back in the pot.
Separately, blend together the spices, remaining garlic, the greens and olive oil (for extra protein and omega 3 fatty acids, one can add 3 tbsp. hemp seeds). Add the cup of the water in which the potatoes boiled and mix well. Combine with the potato puree and serve. May store in the fridge for 1 day.

There is Hope even Today

I am thankful for being able to listen to this great podcast called " Crazy days" by Fr. Josiah Trehnam. It provides great encouragement to go forward and not be ashamed or abandon The Church:
Fr. Josiah Trenham is the pastor of St. Andrew Orthodox Church in Riverside, California. He is also the founder and director of Patristic Nectar Publications, a non-profit corporation dedicated to the propagation of the inspired theology of the Church Fathers.
