Fried Radishes

Anyone ever had them? I just made them last night and was pleasantly surprised at how good they were. Someone gave my hubby a whole grocery bag full of them. I sliced them thin and fried them in butter. It take the heat completely out of them! Tastes like a cross between cabbage & turnips.
Not bad at all

I make these all the time-they are my favorite. Funny I don't think they taste like cabbages or turnips-do you let them brown up and caramelize in the butter?

A couple of years ago, we grew raddishes in our garden. At that time, we cooked this dish quite frequently. However, it never dawned on me until now that it might be considered low carb.... might have to do it again.

I love fried radishes! I also get daikon radishes, grate them and make latkes out of them. So good!

I agree with Lisa..... they don't taste like cabbage or turnips to me either. I love them fried until nice and brown with some onion. Tastes more like fried potatoes to me. I like them tossed in with a roast too......swear I am eating potatoes......YUMBO

Sue, I will have to try the Latkes sometime too.... sounds great!!!!

I love fried radishes with a little onion. Haven't had these in a while think I'll have to make some. Thanks for bringing them up.

We like fried radishes, too. Also, if you are making a long-simmering stew or soup, radishes make a lovely potato sub. The red color disappears in the long cooking. We are also fans of grated, fried jicama. And, I made Kevin's delicata squash home fries. Very tasty. No, none of these things taste exactly like potatoes, but they are all very good in their own right and keep us feeling deprived.

Thanks for posting.

DH "hates" radishes, but I'm going to try these!

(He'll probably like them).

OMG!!!

Both DH and I loved them!!!

I fried them in Smart Balance Light w/garlic and some black pepper.
To us, they seemd a lot like hash browns.

No radish taste, at all.
They completely took on the taste of the 'butter' and seasonings.

I'll be making them often.

Thanks so much for posting!

Good to hear Rebecca

I find I need to fry them for quite a while before I add my onions or the onions burn. I HAVE to have onion...I love it so much!!

I have a roast in the crock pot sitting on top of a whole bag of cleaned and halved radishes

Next time I fry radishes, onions will be a must!

I'll also add them in with my next roast. YUMM!!!

This sounds good.

Do you have to peel the radishes?

Nope, I sliced off the ends, then sliced the rest into thin slices and fried up.
