Daikon Radish (aka White Radish) is another underused vegetable. There are two varieties, the Japanese and the Korean White radishes. They vary in size, but the tastes are the same.
Daikon is most popular in Salads where its radish-like heat shines through. I use it a lot in home made juices – just a small chunk so that the heat does not overpower the juice – and it adds a spark to the juice that is not otherwise there.
But when cooked – steamed, simmered, sauteed, baked, roasted, fried – it loses its heat and becomes mild and delicious.
