Default Radish Recipes

I have many radishes from my little garden. We are tired of eating them in salads.

What else can I do with them?

Default Grilled Radishes

20 ounces sliced radishes
2 cloves minced garlic
2 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1 ice cube
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients on double layer of foil large enough to make a packet. Cook on hot grill 20 minutes or until radish is tender.

(I would think you'd want the packet to be fairly thin so it will cook all the way through quickly)

Default Braised Radishes

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 green onions, cut into 1/4-inch dice, white and light green parts only
2 bunches radishes, greens removed, trimmed, halved or quartered, depending on size
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup water

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat;

Add the onion; lower heat to medium. Cook, stirring, until the onion softens, about 3 minutes.

Add the radishes, salt, sugar and pepper to taste; stir in the water.

Raise heat to high; heat just to a boil. Cover; lower heat to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 20 minutes.

Uncover; raise heat to high. Heat to a boil; cook until almost all the liquid has evaporated, about 4 minutes.

SECOND RECIPE - THIS ONE USING RADISH GREENS

20 plump purple or red radishes
1 to 2 Tablespoons butter
2 stalks green garlic, cleaned as you would a leek and chopped, use all the light green part
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
S & P to taste

Trim the leaves from the radishes, leaving a bit of the green stems, and scrub them. Wash the leaves and set aside. Leave smaller radishes whole and halve the larger ones.

Melt 2 to 3 teaspoons of the butter in a small saute pan. Add the shallot and thyme and cook for 1 minute over medium heat. Add the radishes, a little salt and pepper, and water just to cover. Simmer until the radishes are tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the leaves and cook until they're wilted and tender, 1 minute more. Remove the radishes to a serving dish. Boil the liquid, adding a teaspoon or two more butter if you like, until only about 1/4 cup remains. pour it over the radishes and serve.

I remember my dad eating thinly sliced radish on buttered bread. I might try that some time.

Radish Tart

Radish Tart is a tasty and colorful pie, best served hot from the oven. Fresh red radishes and yellow cheese give this pretty pie any interesting look and taste.

Ingredients
* 1 cup all purpose flour
* 1/2 cup cold butter
* 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Edam, Gouda, or Gruyere cheese, divided (Cheddar is also acceptable)
* 1 cup heavy cream, divided
* 4 egg yolks
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 to 1 small bunch of red radishes

Procedure
1. Preheat oven to 425.
2. Sift and measure flour into a bowl. Cut in the butter until the particles are coarse. Stir in 1/2 of the cheese. Pour in 1/4 cup of the cream; toss the mixture with a fork until all parts are moistened.
3. Turn the dough into a 9-inch round pie pan. With floured fingers, press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the pan, then prick the shell with a floured fork.
4. Bake the pie shell for 10 to 12 minutes. (The sides will slip down a little during baking.) Cool on a wire rack.
5. Lower the oven temperature to 325.
6. Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over the bottom of the cooled pie shell. Beat together the egg yolks, the 3/4 cup cream, and the salt. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese. Place the radish slices evenly over the top of the pie.
7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set.
8. Remove the pie from the oven, cut it into wedges, and serve it hot.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Tips
* If you really like the taste of radishes, use 1/2 cup or more. For a milder pie, use 1/4 cup.
* The cheese crust has a pleasant crisp texture when eaten fresh out of the oven. Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated later, but the texture will not be as good.
* A really sharp knife will aid in cutting the wedges without displacing the radishes.

A little late to the party here, but when I had too many radishes, I'd always slice them and toss them in a stir fry with other veggies. Or I'd let them start to go to seed in the garden, then pick the seed pods while they were still green and soft, and stir-fry those or just toss them on top of a salad.

Those radish pods sound great! I hope I can find some to try.
