How to eat radishes – 7 recipes
In our first Abel and Cole organic veg box we had a humongous bunch of radishes.
We normally eat these fresh during the summer, but receiving them when there was snow on the ground felt like quite a challenge.
And apart from eating them as a salad garnish, what can you do with them anyway?
Here are some the ideas we’ve been experimenting with and I’d love to hear yours:
You can’t beat sliced crisp radishes generously rolled around in your favourite dip!
Grated radish makes a wonderful addition to coleslaw. Instead of being a pale, uninteresting dish it suddenly becomes alive and vibrant
If you slice them finely and hang onto them until the last minute, radishes make an interesting and delicious addition to stir fries
Look at this beautiful colour: it’s grated cheese and radishes which I then mixed with mayonnaise and used as a sandwich filling
Mix finely sliced radishes with new potatoes and chives before slathering in mayonnaise
Grate radishes, mix with grated cheese and mix them into mashed potato for a zingy topping
Grate your radish into a cup of yogurt along with finely diced cucumber, add coriander leaves and salt to taste. The perfect partner to curry.
What about you – what are your favourite radish recipes? I’d especially love to hear of any recipes that involve cooking the radishes.
