Branching Out

 I'm slowly branching out with my vegetable choices. Last week: Kale. This week: Radishes.

Aren't they cute? Seriously- radishes remind me of a clown nose or rudolf's nose. They look so happy! 

You MUST try this kale recipe from Mrs Molly over at Urban Nester. Andrew and I made it last week and threw in some asparagus & tomatoes. It is to die for! I raved about it at work all night and couldn't wait for leftovers.

I already ate some radishes in my salad but want to try a bit more with these pretty little red balls. So- I'll try a simple radish mashed potatoes.  

Do you have any great radish recipes?


  1. Great pics. Radishes are great, especially in a tuna or chicken salad. Enjoy your newfound veggie friends!

  2. Kale chips are awesome: (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/melissa-darabian/crispy-kale-chips-recipe/index.html)

    As is Kale and Cheddar Frittata: (http://orangette.blogspot.com/2007/03/carrot-kale-carry-on.html)

    And radishes are divine when served like they do in France with butter, salt and a baguette. Yum! (http://orangette.blogspot.com/2005/05/on-rewards-and-radishes.html)

    Swiss chard is also a really fun leafy green to eat. I've tried it in a few different ways, and I just love it. Way to expand on your vegetables!


Leave me some love!
