Rad Recipes You Didn't Know You Needed

Everyone recognizes a radish, but this brassica typically falls far behind in consumption to its cousins like kale, cabbage and even brussel sprouts because of the perception around its preparation!

We will not stand for this, so Cryssi decided to whip up a few recipes to help you make the most of these radical roots (and their leaves, too!)

 

 

Radish and Edamame Salad

  

 

Ingredients:

  • 8-10 radishes, rinsed, tail trimmed, stem left intact
  • 1 cup frozen edamame, thawed
  • 1 small red onion or shallot, minced
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1tsp sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, add the minced onion or shallot, vinegar, sugar and pinch of salt. Set aside to macerate for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Using the stem of the radishes, thinly slice using a mandoline or with a sharp knife. Stack the slices on top of each other and slice straight down to get mini matchsticks.
  3. Just before serving, toss the edamame with the radishes, onion mixture and sesame oil. 
  4. Toss to coat. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. (Do not be afraid to go a little heavy on the salt - both the edamame and radishes can handle it). Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and serve.
