I've been thinking about that show- which happens to be having its 30 year anniversary- lately because like my little fraggle friends I've been on a crazy radish kick. I have discovered the joy of a cooked radish. Yum.
See, I never realized you could cook these little root vegetables up and completely transform their flavor. Cooking them takes a little of the bite away and you end up with a something almost like a potato with a kick. I'm hooked.
I had mine on the side with a little broccoli and a grilled chicken breast. I am loving using the grill again- thank you summer!
While eating be sure to check for any Fraggles! :D
- 1-2 bunches of radishes
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Pinch of fresh nutmeg
Wash and trim away the greens of the radishes. Cut into quarters or halves depending on size. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the radishes and garlic. Season to taste with salt, black pepper, and a bit of nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally until just fork tender- about 10 minutes.
