The CSA came yesterday with some glee (more eggs! yummy greens – including collards! carrots! more amazing spring onions!) and a little apprehension (not sure we’re gonna eat this fennel….). Causing the most apprehension was, probably, the gigantic pile of radishes. Although, to be fair, some of these may be turnip roots. We’re not sure how many, but we are darn sure going to find out BEFORE we put them into a soup like we did this past fall.
To be fair…we got so many radishes and radishes-that-looked-like-turnips in the fall that we were overwhelmed. We ended up eating them in, basically, everything, with mixed results (not counting the above soup fail). We did find a good recipe for a radish-centric salad – basically, you mix sweet corn, thinly sliced radishes, and parsley together and stir in a few tablespoons of Italian-type dressing and some pepper. That was good, and went over well at our housewarming party as a nice compliment to the super hot tempeh chili I made. But radishes? Again? I have no idea what’s going to happen this time.
