gluten Free Menu Swap-Spring radishes

Radishes are the theme Heather of Celiac Family picked for this week’s Gluten Free Menu Swap. Because radishes are so easy to grow and spout up quickly, I have always had the kids plant them so we usually end up with a boatload of the little guys. I don’t do anything very exciting with radishes most of the time – scrub, slice and toss on a salad, or add to Kimchi or Napa Cabbage Slaw. I do have a batch I am experimenting with fermenting right now. I’ll let you all know if they turn out tasty. My youngest (the picky princess) isn’t a big fan of radishes, so won’t eat the peppery little things raw, but will eat them sautéed. It is such and interesting way to eat radishes. Sautéing really cuts the spicy factor down and leaves you with a crisp tender bite. The recipes my family have liked are Sautéed Radishes with Spinach (with a piece of bacon chopped and cooked before adding anything else to the pan) and Sautéed Radishes (using coconut oil instead of butter). How do you eat radishes?

I can’t remember ever cooking radishes. I’m anxious to give it a try, and see how the family likes it.
Have a good time at the expo!
