There is so much information “out there” about so many different things.
Today, I came across “radishes”. Radishes are something that I’m not extremely familiar with. I know they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors and with varying tastes. I found this guide to be helpful in learning more about them: http://www.field-goods.com/food/132-radishes.html
From that site:
Nutritional Value: Radishes are a great source of Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Calcium, Magnesium, Copper and Manganese, Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Folate and Potassium. One cup of radishes contains just 19 calories!
Storage: Cut off the greens and store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. Scrub radishes right before eating.
Tips: Radishes can be roasted, boiled or steamed!
To roast: Preheat oven to 425º F. Toss sliced radishes with olive oil, spread onto baking sheet and roast for 30-45 minutes until tender and brown.
- To boil: Bring water to a boil, drop in whole or sliced radishes, and simmer until tender. Simmer for 10-30 minutes depending on desired tenderness.
- To steam: Steam whole radishes in steamer for 5 to 15 minutes, depending on desired tenderness.
