Leave it to cool down to room temperature.
Meanwhile, cut the cucumber into thin quarters and the radishes into thin slices.
Add the cucumber, the radishes, the herbs and the dairy to the stock, and stir well.

MYHRU WELLNESS SCOOP: To big it up on the protein punch, add quarters of hard-boiled egg to each bowl before serving. Eggs are packed with vitamins B2, B6, B12 & D, as well as zinc, iron and copper. So enjoy in moderation (high cholesterol!) and make sure to source free-range locally farmed produce.
Cut the onion into thin quarter strips and simmer in water with a dash of maple syrup, until sticky.
