What To Do With Radishes?

I have about 2 cups of baby radishes that I have no idea what to do with.

I am housesitting and my friends told me to eat anything in the refrigerator -- but what can I do with fresh radishes?

Any ideas, DL's culinary whizzes?

Please help if you have a tasty (and hopefully easy) recipe that isn't a salad.

String them together with fishing line in order to make homemade anal beads.

Radish Jones!

Use them as an impromptu ball gag.

There's really not much you can do with them outside of thinly-slicing them over salads.

Google Radish chips from Betty Crocker. If you are not into frying there is an old creamed radish recipe. Or just pickle them

Are you familiar with Allrecipes? How about sauteed radishes which has very few ingredients or potato salad with radishes.

Well, if you are out of ping-pong balls, then radishes will do the trick.

r6: Thank you for the All Recipes link. Sautéing these radishes looks like my best bet, thank you.

Radishes are great sautèed together with other vegetables...or even just steamed and dressed with olive oil and lemon.

Sauteed radishes are great, OP. I also throw them in with zucchini or summer squash.

There are few things better than a radish sandwich (unless it's a purple onion sandwich).

Ideally, use fresh homemade white bread -- or go to a good bakery & get a fresh loaf of white sandwich bread, or French bread (not sourdough).

Cut 2 slices of the bread medium thin & coat one side of each slice with good butter. Slice the radishes (or onions) very thin & cover one slice of the buttered bread with overlapping slices of the vegetable -- salt & pepper liberally (add another layer of the vegetable if you want a heartier sandwich & sprinkle that with more salt & pepper).

Top with the other slice of buttered bread & cut in half diagonally. Eat with a cold glass of Guinness or dark beer.

Radishes are stupid.

1)First make radish roses. It is very important as a gay man that you do this. 2) Next admire your flowers. Move them around on a plate to make an arrangement. 3) Salt 4) Eat

Thinly sliced, with snap peas and chopped parsley with an olive oil and lemon juice tossed with soba noodles.

The French eat them just thinly sliced and salted on buttered bread if that's any help.

Because like vegemite/marmite, they all taste like shit and you need bread and butter to get it down.

No one is eating radishes because they actually taste good.

I like them! Delicious.

When radishes cook they become sweet.

Raw radishes are also nice grated over fish.

R14, the radish roses need a soak in ice water to open properly. And remain crispy-crunchy. As do carrot stick fans.

Finely diced, makes a great addition to tuna salad sandwiches. Or throw 'em into a bowl of water, and let the mice bob for 'em.

I love radishes, R17! I eat them with at least one meal a day -- beautiful (several different colors & shapes), crunchy, spicy accompaniment to sandwiches or soup or pasta or rice or eggs, etc. Readily & cheaply available all year, very few calories, & full of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, & fiber.
