Tips

Radishes can be eaten raw or cooked.

In the store, look for radishes that are full, round and bright in color.

For maximum storage time, remove the leaves and stems and place unwashed radishes in a plastic container or plastic bag in the refrigerator.

Prior to consumption, rinse radishes under cold running water to remove dirt and dust. If planning to cook with radish leaves, which can be cooked like other greens, be sure to rinse both the radish and the leaves/stems thoroughly.

Nutrition

Radishes contain vitamin C, folate, and potassium. They are a good source of fiber, vitamin B6, riboflavin, magnesium, copper, and calcium.

Caramelized Romaine Hearts with Shaved Radish

Ingredients

  • 3 halved Josie’s Organics romaine hearts
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Josie’s Organics radish thinly sliced or shaved
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon

Serves 6

Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium- high heat (if you don’t have cast iron, a stainless skillet will work, too). Add the butter and oil. They should sizzle and pop. Add garlic and evenly distribute with a wooden spoon.

Immediately lay the romaine hearts, cut side down. They should sear right away. Cook 7-8 minutes until the bottoms are brown and caramelized. Remove from pan and place on a serving plate.

Sprinkle radish slices on top of the romaine. Drizzle with the pan drippings. Squeeze fresh lemon on top. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
