Creamy Braised Radishes

These creamy braised radishes are a delicious fall comfort food.

I’ve been trying to cut down on the amount of starch and grains I eat. The problem is that on these crisp fall evenings, I really like hot, creamy comfort food. So I’ve been mashing all sorts of things, cauliflower and celery root being my two favorites. Until tonight.

Tonight I discovered braised radishes, and I couldn’t be happier. I love the radishes from our garden, but I can only eat so many in my salads. I’ve never really known what else to do with them. But we’re about to have a bumper crop come in and I was looking for ideas. This recipe originated from Suzanne Sommers, although I altered it a bit. Let me just say Yum! I think I have a new favorite root vegetable. And it’s straight from the garden. What a bonus.
