I am not a fan of radishes, I don't hate them just not a fan! However just today I revisited radishes and found a way to enjoy them. We have half a share with My Vegi Box and our lovely local farming family has been sending us radishes and I have been putting them aside because it’s not a vegetable I particularly enjoy. In spite of this after another bundle of very lovely radishes was given to us I decided I could not let all that hard work go to waste. I grabbed the spring salad mix, the sprouts, the green onions (all from our share) and the radishes and made a toss salad and topped it with my own homemade coconut Thai curry sauce. I was waiting for that overly bitter taste but instead the taste blended in with the creamy coconut and curry and even complimented the flavour. I am thrilled to say I can now enjoy radishes and will continue to experiment with them. Sometimes when we dislike a food especially a healthy one like radishes it’s worth thinking about the work our farmers put into growing them, appreciating the health benefit and getting creative to make it acceptable to our pallet. Don’t give up on those healthy foods that you can’t tolerate just try and get creative before tossing them to the compost!
