What's veggie this month?
It's that time of month again where we showcase a vegetable. So what is it this month? Don't shoot the messenger, but its radishes. The root vegetable that nearly no kid will eat but is actually delicious and very healthy for you. Let's break down into the healthy part first, then we will add a recipe at the end that hopefully the kids will enjoy.
First of all radishes are high in Vitamin C which as we learned earlier aides in boosting your immune system. They also contain potassium, folate, riboflavin, B-6, Vitamin K and a ton of other vitamins and minerals for a complete and nutrient dense little root. The water content of radishes also help in keeping you hydrated in the warm summer months. They also have some powerful detoxifying compounds.
But how do you get your kids to enjoy them? Good question with all these amazing health benefits. Hopefully we have the answer for you, no promises though. Baking the radishes or roasting them whichever you want to call it brings out a different flavor profile in the radish. So we found a couple roasted radish recipes for you to try.
1 Tbsp Butter
20 Radishes, you could use less if you like
Salt and pepper to taste.
Cut radishes in half, tops trimmed. Heat butter and arrange radishes cut side down.
Stir occasionally until radishes are brown and softened which is about 10 minutes.
We hope this recipe finds you well, we look forward to seeing you all soon.
