If you love potatoes and hash browns are your friend, I promise, you’ll love them made with radishes too! Don’t worry they don’t taste weird, in fact they are really good and have a lot of health benefits too. The calorie count is much, much lower than potatoes and if you like gardening, they are extremely easy to grow.
Let’s take a look. One cup of radishes has 18.6 calories and one cup of potatoes has 115.5 calories. The carbs are a lot lower too. Radishes weigh in at 3.9 grams while an equal measurement of potatoes is 26.2 grams.
Radishes are higher in sodium than potatoes and their potassium level isn’t nearly as high as their starchy counterpart. So depending on what your watching or what your diet prohibits, you’ll want to take this into consideration.
I happen to love both of these vegetables. Heck I could live on chicken and potatoes, so it’s probably good for me to insert some radishes in as well!
I don’t have a complicated recipe for you. Just chop up some radishes…
Toss them with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper…
Do the same with some bell pepper, sweet peppers and onions…
Toss the radishes in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook for about 4 minutes or so, stirring frequently. Then add in the pepper and onion mixture. Saute, stirring occasionally, until done and serve with your favorite eggs.

ooooh. i’ve made radishes this way before – they get tender, less spicy, and absolutely wonderful. it’s also nice to have a new way to eat them besides raw. High five for radishes at breakfast time!
Yummy! If you have a minute or two I would love for you to come link this up on my blog! Have a great day!

I love how unique this idea is Amanda! Bravo! It’s nice to see someone using creativity in their cooking! I once made roasted radishes (I think I did a post on them about a year ago) and they were FANTASTIC! I pays to step out of the box every now and then.

Huh, clever. Great idea! I love radishes, but I have never eaten them cooked – ever. Thanks for the inspiration.
