We have a bunch of radishes that must be eaten soon, but neither of us like them raw. What are some ways to cook them?<br><br>
I was looking at <a href="http://milkywaydiner.blogspot.com/2005/10/roasted-radish-and-goat-cheese-pie.html" target="_blank">this recipe for a radish and goat cheese pie.</a> The only thing is that it's not exactly healthy because of all the cream, cheese, and pastry!!<br><br>
Any ideas? I need to use these radishes within the next day or two, so please reply soon!!

Our favorite way to eat them is braised. It really mellows their flavor.<br><br>
Melt 2 T butter in a small sauce pan. Add 2 bunches of (cleaned, with leaves removed) radishes, and cook, while stirring, for 5 minutes or until radishes are well coated with butter. Add 1 T balsamic vinegar and 1/2 c veggie or chicken broth. Cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until soft. Serve with chopped parsley.

OwennZoe, Thanks for the reply! Do you serve them as a side dish? Do you think it'd go well with fish? (We are veg except for fish)

I was just wondering if radishes could be cooked. I'm not a big fan of them, but I've only ever seen them raw. Dd was watching Fraggle Rock and they were making radish gumbo and it occurred to me that I have never seen a cooked radish, lol.

Well, we ended up cooking the radish pie. It was not the healthiest but it was DELISH!

Sorry - I didn't see your post until now! Yes, we serve them as a side dish, and I think they would go just fine with fish, in case you ever decide to try them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Now, could you enlighten me - what is radish pie, and how do you make it?

Posting again to add another recipe I have for radishes. They aren't cooked in this one, but it is just delicious:<br><br>
Better Times Salad<br>
2/3 c lentils (I use brown)<br>
1 cup cooked wild rice<br>
1/3 cup finely sliced red radishes<br>
¼ c finely sliced white radishes (I substitute Beauty Heart radishes for the white)<br>
¼ c finely chopped green scallion tops<br>
2 pickled jalapeno peppers, finely sliced<br>
1 clove garlic, crushed<br>
¼ t salt<br>
2 T lime juice<br>
2 t country-style Dijon mustard<br>
¼ c olive oil<br>
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish.<br><br>
Cook the lentils in boiling, salted water until tender, about 20 mins. Drain and set aside to cool. Combine the cooled lentils with the cooked wild rice, radishes, scallion tops, and peppers in a bowl. Toss well.<br><br>
Using the back of a spoon, mash the garlic with the salt in a small bowl until a paste is formed. Whisk in the lime juice, mustard, and oil. Pour the dressing over the mixture and toss well. Serve at room temp, sprinkled with parsley.

I hate raw radishes, but I absolutely love roasted radishes.<br><br>
Toss trimmed & scrubbed radishes in peanut oil and roast in a 425 oven about 20-25 minutes. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, add in some chopped scallions and several tablespoons of soy sauce.<br><br>
This is so good! I like to make this alongside an asian meal, like tofu and sesame noodles.

Good to know for next time. The radish pie is basically a pastry crust, goat cheese, radishes, and a few other ingredients. The link to the recipe is in the first post. Try it- it's wonderful! Of course, I am a goat cheese lover.<br><br>
I think I'll start using radishes more, all these recipes sound so good!
