What are the benefits of eating radishes?
Radishes are rich in antioxidants and minerals like calcium and potassium. Together, these nutrients help lower high blood pressure and reduce your risks for heart disease. The radish is also a good source of natural nitrates that improve blood flow.

Matt & Ted Lee's Radish Butter
YIELD
Serves 6
 
INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 pound round red radishes, trimmed, at room temperature
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, completely softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or 1/2 teaspoon Maldon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white or black pepper
  • About 24 thinly sliced rye toast points, toasted slices of French bread, water crackers, 2-inch celery sticks, endive leaves, or romaine heart halves

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Put the radishes in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the radish is chopped into very fine dice, four or five 3-second pulses.
  2. Transfer the contents to a length of cheesecloth or a double thickness of paper towels and wring out the excess liquid.
  3. Transfer to a medium bowl and add 4 tablespoons of the butter.
  4. With a rubber spatula, cream the radish and butter together, adding more butter 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture comes together in a smooth, pliable mass.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a 2-cup ramekin or bowl, sprinkle the salt and pepper over the top, and serve immediately. (The butter will keep, covered with plastic wrap, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Remove it from the refrigerator 15 minutes before serving to let it soften. Sprinkle the salt and freshly ground pepper over the radish butter before serving.)

Radish and Turnip Hash with Green Garlic and Fried Eggs
YIELD
Serves 2

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 to 3 small turnips, trimmed, peeled, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 cups cubed)
  • 4 to 5 small radishes, scrubbed and trimmed, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 cups cubed)
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil, or other neutral, heat-tolerant oil
  • 1 stalk green garlic, trimmed and chopped (white and light green parts only)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add 2 teaspoons sea salt. Boil turnip cubes just until tender, 3 to 4 minutes; remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon, pour off any excess water, and set aside. Next, boil radishes briefly, 30 to 60 seconds; remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon, pour off any excess water, and set aside.
  2. Set a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add grapeseed oil and when hot, add turnips and radishes, and a pinch each sea salt and pepper. Turning vegetables only once or twice, cook 8 minutes or until golden-brown. Turn heat to medium and fold in green garlic, cooking for about a minute. Push vegetables to the sides, melt butter in the center of pan, and add the eggs, salting each individually. For over-easy eggs, cook uncovered 4 to 6 minutes; for over-medium eggs, cover pan for 3 minutes, then uncover and continue cooking just until whites are set, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Finish with minced parsley and sea salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
