This is one of the vegetables that inspired me to start this blog. I was sharing my dream to start writing about vegetables with some amazing women almost a year ago during a networking event at Miramar Farms and even they got excited about the watermelon radish as I described it. Its slightly peppery-sweet taste is liked by even those who don’t normally enjoy radishes.
As a member of the cruciferous vegetable family (which includes broccoli, cabbage, kale, and Brussels sprouts), radishes contain phytonutrients, fiber, vitamins, and minerals that may protect us from cancer.
Three of these tennis ball sized vegetables disappeared from my counter last night as I was slicing them. Apparently my family enjoys them raw, although I just discovered that you can also bake them or turn them into crispy chips. We’ll try it and let you know!
On day 24 of this 365 day project, I ate my daily five (including those addictive sunchoke fries). Did you enjoy yours?
