The peppery flavor of radishes shine in this simple recipe for Radishes in Browned Butter and Lemon.
3 cups radishes, halved lengthwise, with root and 1-inch stem left on
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup torn radish leaves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Add radishes to pan; cook 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add radishes to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until butter is browned and fragrant. Add rind, juice, and salt; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat; stir in radish leaves and pepper.
Good, simple side dish. To some degree tastes a bit like potatoes, and is something of a different way to prepare radishes, at least for us. I liked it, but agree it is a bit simple in terms of flavor. I'd suggest going with pepper to taste.
Wasn't sure if I would like this since I've never really cooked radishes before but I had some in the fridge so I thought I'd give it a go. Really enjoyed this and very easy and quick to make! Goes well with almost anything. My radishes already had their tops cut off so I stirred in some mixed greens&herbs that I had instead of the radish leaves and that seemed to do the trick.
