So I came across this while perusing Epicurious on my phone (Yes I love food so much that I look up recipes for fun.). The full recipe was for sauteed mustard chicken and sauteed radishes. I made the whole recipe cause I love mustard and never thought to cook radishes. the mustard chicken turned out good. It was colorful and delicious. I should have cooked it alittle longer to make it more tender but we were both hungry so it was a little tougher than I like. The taste was good. The sauteed radish part was new and interesting to me.
I will be completely honest. I do not like raw radishes. I think they taste like peppery raw potatoes which makes me gag a little bit. I have never understood how people can eat slices of raw potato. Ew. Anyways, I digress.
Cooked radishes taste a lot like a mixture of potato and a hint of squash. they loose a lot of the white color as the reddish color of the skins permeates the rest of the vegetable.
I found that in the end of it all, I still do not like radishes. They left a chalky film on my teeth which I hated and it made my stomach feel weird.
This was the recipe I used but didn’t realize that I could eat the greens so I didn’t cook them.
4 bunches radishes, washed & quartered
2 tablespoons butter, unsalted
1 Heat butter in fry pan.
2 Add radishes and salt.
3 Saute until crispy.
