Easiest Radish Ideas
1. Slice ’em and salt ’em. Well, that was easy.
2. Chop ’em and roast ’em. Coat with olive oil and roast for about 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees. 
3. Sauté ’em and add ’em. Throw them into a stir-fry or curry. They’ll add a nice crunch!
4. Cut ’em and add ’em. Seriously, add them to anything raw. Corn salsa? Yes. Chicken salad? Absolutely. Top of a green salad? Of course. 




Radishes
In The Kitchen

07/25/18



 Radishes are completely underrated. With the exception of Peter Rabbit stories, where the protagonist is constantly stealing them from Mr. McGregor’s garden, radishes seem to get no airtime. Radishes are a root vegetable, like a carrot, but are part of the same family as broccoli and cabbage. Like their family members, they prefer cooler climates in which to grow. They’re a great early spring vegetable to plant alongside your greens and broccoli! 

Unsurprisingly, radishes are very good for you. In case you hadn’t heard, vegetables are pretty amazing for our bodies. Seriously, in a perfect world, we should be eating mostly vegetables. Not only would our bodies be healthier but also our footprint on the earth would be gentler. Win-win. According to Self magazine’s website, radishes contain riboflavin, B6, calcium, magnesium, copper and manganese. They’re also wonderfully fibrous so are filling additions to any meal and can stand strongly on their own. 
For today’s column, I wanted to give you several ideas for how to incorporate this vegetable into your life. Perhaps it can become a stronger presence in our diets, adding more color and more nutrients along its way.
Don’t count radishes out. Your body will benefit from eating a variety of plant species on a regular basis. There are so many ways to bring nutrition into our systems and we have to not get stuck in a rut!
