How do I eat radishes

Radishes also taste wonderful when they are briefly fried in a little olive oil in a wok. They go very well with sweet fruits such as apples, mangoes or grapes. In Asian cuisine in particular, it is common to skillfully combine spicy and sweet foods.

The fresh, spicy radish leaves can be used in salads or other dishes just like herbs. They taste particularly delicious when they are prepared like spinach or as an ingredient in green smoothies, soups and sauces.
