Beef & Faux-Tato Soup

Brrrr, it’s cold outside!

A lot of the country is surrounded by cold … and what is better than to warm yourself up from the inside out?

When you are on P2, the body tends to react to cold a little bit differently than when you are eating normal maintenance.  Most seem to stay cold, so warm foods are just the ticket.

I know my favorite go to soups/stews are those with beef and tomatoes.  They just seem to create a hearty and satiating meal that warms me up inside.  This soup adds radishes to act like a potato … and if you cook it just right … when the radishes are not tough, but not mushy, it really does give your mouth that feel of it being a potato … try it and see!

I add cilantro, well because anything with cumin in it needs cilantro … like I need an excuse! ::giggle::

    Thank you for this delicious, satisfying recipe! Radishes were always too hot for me, but they are mild and a perfect potato substitute here. My husband asked me to make it again soon : )
