Radishes are not something I often buy, not because I dislike them rather I’m not always sure what to do with them. Sure you could always dip them in something or just eat them, what else do people use them for? On a quick search I found a popular use was as simple as sliced radishes on bread with butter and a dash of salt. Hmmmm, ok I can do that! So, I tried it out and this is how it went…
Ingredients : sliced radishes, bread, butter, salt, and radish sprouts.
The day before we had this snack we made the bread, it was a french bread recipe found on The Thrifty Gourmet. I’m not going to elaborate on our experience making this bread yet, I think we need another try for ultimate success — it didn’t rise properly for us this time. But, for a first attempt at french bread, it turned out pretty good and was great for this snack. Check out their site for instructions and a great how to video demonstration if you want to give it a try. I think most fresh breads would be great for this treat.
To make this snack, simply start off by preparing your ingredients. Slice your radishes and bread, pick your radish sprouts. If you haven’t tried radish sprouts before keep an eye out for them; they’re quite tasty. They would be great on sandwiches or in salads for an extra kick.
Toast and butter your bread.
Lay radish slices and sprinkle salt.
Top with radish sprouts and snack!
I also made radish chips! Still on a search for other ways to use them… any ideas?
