Yep, you read that right.
Did you know the these crunchy, red root vegetables lose their bite when they are cooked?
I was skeptical. I mean, I like radishes as is, but cooked?
Well, a short time ago I was fixing a pot roast. I added my onion and carrots... Then I remembered the notion of radishes as potatoes. Since I had some in the fridge, I tossed them in.
They came out looking cooked red potatoes.
Who'da thunk that brilliant color would go from this to this?
Not bad. The taste was actually closer to cooked carrots or parsnips than a potato. But if you're watching your carbs, you're in luck. Radishes do not have the carbs/sugar content that is in carrots and parsnips.
But don't just take my word for it. My husband, who absolutely hates radishes, thought they were good.
As I studied this new phenomena, I learned that you can even buy matchstick-cut radishes which one could use as a substitute for hash browns.
I have yet to try this one. Though it might happen in the near future.
So what say you? Would you try a cooked radish? Or maybe you've already tried them. If so, what did you think?
