I have so many memories of sumptuous long family lunches with skewered lamb and chicken kebab, rice with golden saffron and side dishes of radish (with the green tops on!) with feta cheese and flatbread, known as lavash. To me, this was the epitome of family celebration so when I received some in my veg box this week all those wonderful memories flooded back. Radish is an under-appreciated vegetable maybe due to the slightly spicy bite it has. To make it super “friendly” one of the best ways to eat it is to have it grated with a dash of lemon and squeeze of honey and some seasoning and voila! you have a dish that looks inviting with its deep pink blush, and sweet and sour flavours. The green leaves can be eaten raw or chopped up and used in any dish that requires parsley, spinach, or watercress, both in cooked or raw form. The grated radish is fabulous served with ginger and turmeric chicken kebabs.
