This recipe use daikon radishes as a potato substitute. I never considered cooking a daikon radish until I, quite literally, almost tripped over one on the grocery store floor.  I didn’t even know what it was at the time, but now I’m fairly certain that our chance meeting was meant to be. I searched through the vegetables to figure out what it was, then did a quick web search to find our the carb content.  One carb per 1/4 cup!  Definitely worth playing with in the kitchen.

I was a little concerned after I peeled it.  It smelled something like a radish.  I guess that makes sense, because, after all, it is a radish.  I had just hoped for a potato with a radish shape and carb value.  A little disappointed, I still continued with my culinary exploration.

I found that cooking this vegetable makes all the difference! Cooking softens the taste and allows it to combine well with other flavors.  In this recipe  I combined it with  onions, paprika, salt, pepper and a bit of hot pepper flakes.  Delicious!
