Another way to prepare red radish, is to stir fry them. Sliced radishes combine well with other vegetables and meat in stir-fries. Don’t over cook them or they’ll become mushy. Cook approximately three to five minutes.
Radishes were first cultivated thousands of years ago in China, then in Egypt and Greece. In Greece they were so highly regarded that gold replicas were made. (Now that’s some serious radish lovers!)
So next time you walk past radishes in grocery store or at market, back track a few steps and pick up a bunch or two.
Or better yet, plant some in your garden next year. Radishes are one of very first vegetables ready for harvest in spring. They will in turn, ready your soil for other veggies!
Give these little guys a chance again.
