What’s so great about them? They are packed full of Vitamin C. According to Livestrong, a 1/2 cup can satisfy up to 14% of your daily need. It’s a low calorie, high fiber food that is diet safe and can help guard against cancer. Whoa there!
Are they easy to grow? Yes, actually. 6 inches deep and 2 feet apart is what Organic Gardening recommends. They take about 3 weeks to mature.
What do I do with them? I personally love them with arugula, seared tempeh, snap peas, and avocado. You can slice them and bake them like chips or saute them with snap peas and scallions. Or you can just eat them raw! They’re peppery with a nice crunchy bite.
Okay, where can I find them? You can find radishes pretty much anywhere (I hope). I get mine from my CSA or from the farmers’ market. They’re white and purple radishes as well!
