Radish! What to do?

Howdy trendsetters? Today on facebook I asked my friends this question, 'I'm after recipes and ideas or ways to use radish. I can grow the little buggers but I don't know how to use them! Anyone?' And now it's your turn
 Just pop your recipes and ideas or ways to use radish into the comments for me. Much appreciated.

So far I have.
  • Jatz with cream cheese and little round slices of radish. Yum.
  •  cut in half and dipped in salt and cracked pepper yum! Or you can make a radish cream like horseradish for a condiment  
  • Roast radishes are delicious!
  • Sliced very very thin in salads is the only way I have had them
  • Ingredients (serves 6)
    18 lamb cutlets, excess fat trimmed
    11/2 tbs curry powder
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    1 tbs peanut oil
    Salt & freshly ground black pepper
    Radish yoghurt
    1 x 200g container natural yoghurt
    6 radishes, washed, dried, stems and roots trimmed, cut into matchsticks
    1/4 cup loosely packed finely chopped fresh coriander
    2 green shallots, ends trimmed, finely chopped
    1 tbs fresh lemon juice
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    Pinch of salt

    Place cutlets in a large glass or ceramic dish. Combine curry powder, garlic and oil in a bowl. Pour over cutlets and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to marinate.
    Meanwhile, to make the radish yoghurt, combine the yoghurt, radish, coriander, green shallot, lemon juice and garlic in a serving bowl. Taste and season with salt. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge until required.
    Preheat a char grill on medium-high. Drain cutlets and season with salt and pepper. Cook on grill for 2 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a serving platter and serve with the radish yoghurt.
    Hop into spring with our favourite pasta salad recipes, lemon recipes, zucchini recipes and easy desserts.
What about a radish curry? Apparently it's common in India. Significant other, here, does a respectable one...

I'm about to hit google and the interweb up for ideas and any I think worthy I'll let you know about.

Cheers and how was your gardening today?

Can't help with recipes, sorry. But I would be interested in some ideas on using them as well. I always plant too many and just pull them up as needed. I end up with lots of overgrown ones and the chooks won't eat them.

bookworm said...

I can't help, either. I stopped growing radishes years ago. Best of luck in your search! I have a feeling you are going to find some fascinating recipes.

Hi Missy, I've found some interesting recipes that I'll post over the next few weeks. Most of mine ended up the same as yours and it's high time I sorted something out for the poor radish.

Hi bookworm, yes I've found lots of interesting recipes and I didn't have to look too hard for them either.

Erin said...

Well, I feel a bit silly - I've never even tried a radish! I might have to take a look into that, they look quite fetching,

They seem to have suffered an image problem in the veggie world. I'm on a mission to make them popular again.

I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be working with?
I'm having some small security problems with my latest website and I'd like
to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate
