HOW TO COOK RADISHES
If you’re wondering how to cook radishes and haven’t done it before, frying is a great place to start.
Today I’m going to show you how to make pan-fried radishes:
- Prep the radishes. Wash them, and trim the greens and roots. Slice them lengthwise into quarters.
TIP: Slicing radishes into quarters creates more surface area for browning. If your radishes are large, you can even cut them into eighths!
- Melt butter. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it’s hot and starting to foam.
- Add radishes to pan. Place the quartered radishes in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper.
TIP: A single layer is super important – it ensures that they brown evenly and get crisp on the outside.
- Cook radishes. Saute the keto fried radishes, stirring occasionally until the radishes are soft and browned.
TIP: Don’t stir this radish recipe constantly, or the fried radishes won’t brown.
