Radishes typically keep a low profile in this country, relegated
to salads and crudite. But other cuisines elevate these peppery,
rosy roots to a starring role. Explore these appealing ways to prepare
organic radishes.
In sandwiches make like the French and slather your favorite GF
bread with butter, sprinkle with salt, then layer on thinly sliced,
perfectly crisp radishes for a lunch with a cool crunch.
For roasting, clean and quarter a pound of radishes, toss with olive
oil, place on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt, minced garlic
or your favorite seasoning salt. Roast at 375 for 20 minutes or until
radishes are tender. Serve as a side dish or add to a quinoa or
leafy salad. Alternately: Toss with toasted sesame oil and GF soy
sauce, roast, then top with sliced scallions and toasted sesame seeds.
