Raw radishes are an acquired taste, but this Sauteéd Radishes recipe are sure to be a hit with almost anyone. Sauteing softens the peppery taste, bitterness and tough texture, making them a perfect low calorie (only 18 calories per serving!) side dish or addition to your Hearty Side Salad.
When I was younger, the peppery flavor and bitterness of radishes was too strong for me. But as I grew older, I began to enjoy raw radishes with a little salt or shaved over my salad. If, like me, you didn’t like them the last time you tried one, give them another try now. Your tastes are constantly changing and this vegetable is a nutrition powerhouse.
Radishes are a cruciferous vegetable like cauliflower and broccoli. They have lots of fiber, carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin); vitamins C, E, and K; folate; and other minerals. There is also evidence to suggest they help prevent and fight several forms of cancer, earning the radish its superfood label.
