Fried radishes. Can you even do that?

Well, sure. Pick your radishes…

…and give them a good bath.

Next, cut them into thin slices, as you would if you were frying potatoes.

Heat up your skillet on medium (I love my cast iron skillet – just like this one!) and toss in a bit of your favorite oil/fat/lard. In this particular instance, I used 2 tablespoons of oil for about 5 cups of sliced radishes.

When both the pan and oil are hot, toss in your sliced radishes. Stir them around.

Experiment with seasoning. I like freshly ground black pepper and some garlic salt. You could also toss in some onion or diced peppers, or any other of your favorite veggies.

If you have a cover for your skillet, use it – it will cut down the cooking time. I stir the radishes around every 5-7 minutes or so. I like my radishes fried until they’re getting towards that caramelized-ish state, which takes a good half hour on medium heat.

Fried radishes are much more mild than their raw counterparts. I’m glad I’ve found a way to enjoy these gorgeous, colorful veggies. You should definitely give them a try!
