“So, what are you doing with your radishes?” is the big neighborhood question these days, after a bumper crop for the farm supplying the weekly veggie box for many of us. It’s a wonderful conversation to have, to find out some of the innovative ways people are cooking and creating. It’s a way to share not just recipes but ideas and inspiration.
Here are our top Radish Favorites:
–Root Vegetable Puree. Boil radishes, potatoes, carrots and onions, then puree with garlic, milk and butter for a great alternative to mashed potatoes.
–RBLT. Layer radishes, bacon, lettuce and tomato on great bread, and spread with a creamy yogurt sauce.
–Radishing Pasta. Mix red and white slices of radish with olive oil, fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Serve over fresh pasta and shave parmesan on top.
–Radish Crudite. Create a circle of whole radishes around a white bean dip.
–Summer Salad. Slice radishes into other summer veggies such as kohlrabi, jicama, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers and fennel. Sprinkle with balsamic viniagrette.
–Asian Coleslaw. Shred radishes with carrots, scallions and Napa cabbage, mix in rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and serve with sesame seeds on top.
–Radishes and Goat Cheese. Spread goat cheese on crackers, place a basil leaf on each, and sliced radishes on top.
