Radishes are one of our favorite spring veggies. From the crisp texture in salads, to a sweet roasted side dish, or a spicy after-school snack, radishes are super versatile and delicious every way you can serve them.
Bon Appetit, a brand known for bringing beautiful flavors to all of us shared a collection of 35 radish recipes that will have everyone thinking about the little red root that is full of spicy flavor.
So when we harvested a few radishes from our office container garden we decided to put the recipes to the test. While they were all good, the ones that received the highest accolades were the White Bean and Radish Salad, Fried Egg on Toast with Salted Herb Butter with sliced Radishes, Bacon-Butter Radishes, and Radish Raita.
There are so many things to love about Radishes – they’re healthy, packed with Vitamins E, A, C, B6 and K. Plus this spicy root veggie is high on antioxidants, fiber, zinc, calcium, and iron.
And finally, if the taste, beauty and health benefits are not enough – they are one of the easiest things to grow.
In many instances, they are ready to harvest 25 days after planting. The perfect container crop doesn’t require full sun and has some leniencies with temperature changes.
