With skin that looks like it belongs to a rhinoceros and a root that looks like a rat tail, this may actually be the ugliest vegetable I’ve ever eaten. I added a few flowers to the plate to make this cancer fighting cruciferous more photogenic. But despite its looks, it really is an incredibly healthy plant food that promotes detoxification and I felt determined to find a way to disguise it as something delicious – like guacamole.
Black Radish Guacamole
4 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, peeled, and roughly chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 limes, zested and juiced
1 small black radish, finely diced
1/2 cup white onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon sea salt
Combine all ingredients and serve with chips.
On day 34 of this 365 day project, I ate my daily five (and I even convinced my kids to try whole kiwis – but my son turned out to be slightly allergic to kiwi peel). Did you enjoy yours?
