I just got home from the farmer's market with lots of yummy things...I also brought home an enormous Daikon! Was feeling adventurous at the time...but now am a bit intimidated. What on earth do I do with this thing? Can you eat it raw? Put it in salads? Stir fry? Help!
I also used it in a big pot of soup. I put cut up leeks, diakon, and carrots in a small pot, brought it to a boil, put it in my blender and puree'd it. It was actually quite good, and the creamy texture was just what I needed :)
Yum! Thank you all so much for the recommendations! Those all sound good...and I think I have all the ingredients for soup (I bought some yummy fresh carrots last night too), so that might be dinner tonight...plus that would give me an excuse to try out my immersion blender :) Do you keep the Daikon in the refrigerator? Or perhaps only once you cut it? Treat it like radishes?
I keep mine in the fridge but not sure if im even sopposed to! definitely make the braised daikon from TKD, it is delicious and is a great side dish to any meal. Also, the daikon is a bit bitter when raw but i really like munching on raw daikon and hummus. I sneakily added raw daikon slices to a platter of carrots and cucumbers meant for dipping into hummus and everyone was like-what on earth is this white crunchy stuff and why is it mysteriously bitter yet yummy? 2 points for raw daikon yay!
