Native to China, radishes have been grown around the world for thousands of years. Radishes are generally quite spicy, however, some of the many varieties such as the White Icicle radish, have a milder flavor, while the French Breakfast radish tastes slightly nutty.
Both the root and greens are edible, and can be tossed into stir-fry or salads, blended with salsa, mixed with tacos and sandwiches, roasted with herbs and olive oil, whipped into omelettes, or even baked into bread. Related to the peppery wasabi, radishes are not quite as popular as other vegetables, but this spicy vegetable will add zing to any meal, while the vibrant colors will add a colorful touch to any dish.
Loaded with fiber and vitamins B-6, C, magnesium, folic acid, potassium, zinc and calcium, and low in calories, radishes have extraordinary health benefits, especially the rare Black Spanish radish root, which has been used homeopathically for centuries as a tonic for gallbladder and liver issues. Black radish also helps in lowering cholesterol, and since it detoxes the liver, it can lower your risk of cancer or autoimmune disease, such as arthritis or diabetes. These nutritious radishes also contain antioxidants and anti-fungal properties which aid digestive issues.
