Are you ready for a short and sweet ingredient list and recipe? This soup is fast and easy to make and always hits the spot when you’re looking for something warming that comes together in a pinch and in just one pot.
This soup is simple to make and doesn’t require many ingredients. It gets its incredible flavour from primarily radish! Here’s what you’ll need to pull together this simple and delicious Korean soup:
Korean radish. Also known as daikon, these are big, heavy white radishes with a mild flavor. They add heft to the soup and are the base for the broth flavour!
Kelp. Look for dried kombu sheets to flavor the broth in this soup. You can find them in many grocery stores and Asian stores for sure.
Green onion. This adds brightness to the bowl.
Soy sauce. I use gluten-free tamari to flavor this soup.
Sesame oil. You just need a bit of sesame oil to really bring the nutty, toasty flavor out.
Sesame seeds. For garnish and an extra dose of sesame flavor.
Adding Vegan Protein to Mu Guk
To keep this recipe plant-based, I of course omitted the beef that’s in most traditional Korean recipes. However, if you’d like to give your radish soup a boost of protein while still keeping things vegan, you certainly can! Sauté your vegan “beef” alongside your radish.

Seitan (if you’re not gluten-free)
Make-Ahead Korean Radish Soup
You can easily use this recipe for a healthy meal prep. Simply prepare a big batch of the soup, let it cool then divide it between meal prep containers. The soup will stay fresh for up to four days in an airtight container in the fridge. Then, when you’re ready to eat, simply reheat on the stove or in the microwave.
You can even freeze the soup if you have leftovers. It will stay fresh in the freezer for up to three months.
