last saturday, we got TWO KINDS of radishes from the CSA. apparently both came ready for harvest at the same time, so... yeah, in this little CSA box, two kinds. the regular red kind and daikon radishes. i'm really not a fan of the radishes but lots of our CSA stuff goes to waste when i don't figure out what to do with it, and i didn't want to see this stuff thrown out, so i decided that on my cooking night, tuesday, i would use it.
so for dinner tuesday night, we had radish top soup. yes, they're edible! they say the daikon tops are better, but i had both so i mixed them and the tortoises got what was left over. i sauteed onions, um.. what else? i dunno. in olive oil. added potatoes, the radish tops, white beans, umumum.. i think that's it. brought to a boil, let it simmer for a half-hour, then stuck it all in the food processor. it didn't look too good, but it actually tasted yummy, with a little bit of garlic pepper on it. we had it tonight, too.
i cut up the daikon radish, then steamed it, then glazed it with something i made out of half butter, half honey, and some cinnamon. can i tell you how much i love cinnamon? then in the oven for 40 minutes. it was actually really good.
so yep! a radish-based feast! i still dunno what to do with the red radishes, since they're really only good raw in salads, but i'm not really a fan of the taste, but hey, i used all the rest.
okee, off to do 10 million things before i go to bed. tomorrow i have a full day of classes, then i rush off to MIA for a flight to grand cayman!!! :)
