Radish Greens

Are these edible like beet greens and how do you cook them? Thanks

  1. I've not heard of cooking them, just washing them (assuming they need it) and adding them to a salad, as they have a nice peppery taste.

    1. I've put them in soups, not as a main ingredient but just a filler. They're usually a little on the stringy side, so cutting into narrow strips is good.

      1. I cooked the greens from a daikon. It was just OK, not in the same league as marvelous beet greens.

        1. I don't think there is much use in trying anything with radish greens..but if you are growing your own radishes - let them go to
          seed and the wonderful peppery pods that appear are delicious in salad.

          1. In the Daily Soup cookbook, there is a recipe for white bean and chorizo soup that uses the radish greens---but not the radishes! It's a gorgeous soup.
