My husband and I are on a low-carb diet ...radishes are very low-carb. Anyway, I fixed these and loved them! My husband couldn't believe they were radishes. Cooking them and adding butter took away the bite and bitterness and left them mellow and sweet.
This recipe doesn't mention that the radishes will blow off the dish's cover in their attempts to escape the microwave-safe dish and tinge the inside of your oven pink. Other than that, I liked this treatment of radishes. I added salt, butter and lemon juice and enjoyed these much more than I've ever enjoyed them raw.
I added a dash of salt to my radishes, that really made a difference in the flavor. I also added about a tsp of lemon juice, and it seemed to bring out the flavor kicked it up a notch. This is a pretty good recipe for those looking for ways to use up an over abundance of radishes out of your garden!
I just found out this year that I really like cooked radishes - and would recommend radish-lovers try them. This may not be the best recipe to start with. The cooking time is too long in my opinion, and they are going to be blandish as written. I steamed mine for about 5 minutes and added seasoning to the butter. Still, it all depends on your preference - I tend to like my veggies on the rare side. Thanks for the recipe!
My radishes were quite big, so I cut them in half instead of peeling a strip off. I steamed them until they were fork tender, added butter, a touch of salt and lots of pepper. My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised by the mild flavor. It was very nice for a change, and I will do this again if I find myself with a bunch of radishes.
My husband and I are on a low-carbohydrate diet and radishes are very low-carb. I fixed these and loved them. My husband couldn't believe they were radishes. The cooking and butter took away the sharpness of the radish and lef t it very mellow. Try it!
I'm not really sure what I was expecting - after all, this is still a vegetable. Before this, I have only had radishes uncooked on a salad. After being steamed, they taste kind of like cauliflower only more bitter.
Tasty and simple! My radishes must have been too small because they were mushy after 5 min. of microwaving. Next time, I'll cook them less. And yes, they'll be a 'next time' because we like them!
