It occurs to me I only ever eat radishes raw; seems the vast amount of recipes for them don't involve cooking either (e.g. salads).
How have you cooked/eaten radishes? Any great dishes I'm just blanking on?
Yes, braised! I was so surprised that I just really enjoyed radishes when braised. I forgot about that! I used the guidelines in Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.
We had a garden with radishes when I was little, and I was never very excited about them. That changed when I tried the braised radishes. mmm.
Until I saw this thread, I actually never thought of cooking radishes! Have to try some of these ideas.
But one way I really like raw radishes is sliced and served along side burgers or hot dogs instead of potato chips. Still crunchy, hardly any salt, and no fat.
I saw a blog recipe for a tortilla espanola made with radishes instead of potatoes. Apparently once cooked they closely resemble potatoes with a slightly pepper bite.
