Who Knew??

After I made the radish sandwiches today for lunch, I saw all of the radish greens sitting on the cutting board. I wondered if I could do something with those too. I looked on line to see first if they were  safe to eat, and then how to make them. It seems they are high in vitamin C and I found a recipe for “Radish Greens Pesto” from a  site calle “Chocolate & Zucchini. ” So I made it. I have to say, so far this has been my favorite recipe that I have made. It is so full of flavor & freshness. I will never throw radish greens away again!  The recipe : 2 large handfuls of radish greens, washed and stems removed, 2 tbsp olive oil, I used more, some lemon peel, 1/4 c toasted pine nuts, 1 clove fresh garlic, I used 3,  chili pepper spice, salt & pepper. Everything into the food processor. I had some angel hair pasta that I tossed with the warm pesto. Topped that with some parm cheese. Bob did take a bite of it, so he tried, but he stuck with his steak & mashed potatoes.

    So creative! I knew you could eat radish greens, but I don’t think I’ve ever known anyone actually to cook with them. The most I’ve ever done is throw them in to simmer as part of vegetable stock. Looks like a great dish.
