I have to share my latest passion with you, my faithful readers!
Are you ready? It's radishes. Yeah, I know radishes are not something most people get excited about. But, they are a great source of potassium, only 2 calories a piece and have been known to lower blood pressure. Not to mention, their skin is a very attractive color. As you've probably gathered by now, I am a foodie and therefore enjoy sampling new foods and new things with old foods. Radishes raw make an excellent snack, but I had never tried them COOKED before. Oh my goodness, they are delicious! All I did was heat a bit of oil (either light olive oil or canola works best) in a saute pan, trim the ends and chop the radishes in quarters lengthwise. Then sprinkle generously with Kosher salt and coarse ground pepper. Saute' for a couple of minutes and then add a little balsamic glaze until browned (about 6 minutes). Unbelievable! I am on a root vegetable kick, so we'll see what else I can experiment with....any good tips for me?
