Easy, Delicious, Healthy Radish Recipes

June 24, 2013 10 Comments »

Thank you Duda Farm Fresh Foods for samples of your Dandy Ministick Radishes so I could whip up these tasty and healthy recipes.

If you’ve been keeping up with my posts you’ve probably read that my family and I are experimenting with new foods. We tried cauliflower pizza/breadsticks, and kale chips. Both of which have gone pretty well with the family, although they prefer the cauliflower pizza, I must say I love both.

When I was approached by Duda Farm Fresh Foods to review their Dandy Ministick Radishes, I thought it would be a fun “challenge” to get my family to eat radishes and also try new healthy recipes.

Of course I scoured the web researching radish dishes, reading more on the nutritional values and studying good pairings with other foods. Here are some creations I made and other easy, delicious, healthy radish recipes for you.

Easy Delicious Healthy Radish Recipes MommyBKnowsBest

Last week, I made pulled pork for the first time ever for a great family who welcomed a beautiful little boy into the world. Luckily the pulled pork tasted great and was a hit for that family, and I had some left over. Keeping with the healthy eating, instead of putting the pulled pork on sliced bread or a bun, I though it would be yummy to try out a pulled pork lettuce wrap topped with delicious ministick radishes.

Here’s how they turned out:

Here’s my revised recipe for pulled pork that I was inspired by at Just as We Are: http://myrecipetolife.blogspot.com/2011/04/dinner-recipe-pulled-pork.html

And here’s how I made my Pulled Pork Spinach Wraps:

First make your Pulled Pork:

– Start with a 4-5lb Pork Roast {shoulder or butt works best}.

– For optimal flavor marinade for 1-12 hours before placing in your slow cooker.

– Create a wet rub for the pork roast using the following ingredients:

  • 2 Garlic Cloves pressed from fresh or 2 teaspoon of canned {olive oil preferably}
  • 2 tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons of pepper {more for a spicier taste}
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of stone ground mustard {or more for spicier taste}

Unwrap your roast, removing all strings from the roast, placing it on a cutting board or shallow dish perfect for covering with your rub and/or leaving to marinate.

Mix your rub together until all ingredients are combined, place the rub on all sides of the roast coating sides well. Cover and marinate.

When done marinating, place the roast in your slow cooker set to high, {I recommend using Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners for easy cleanup} and add 1 cup of water for a deliciously moist roast.

Let your roast sit for about 6 hours, {if you’re like me you may want to flip your roast over mid-way at the 4 hour point.}

Once done, carefully remove your roast from your slow cooker and shred the meat using two forks.

Place the shredded pork in a mixing bowl, and incrementally add tablespoons of your favorite barbecue sauce until you reach your desired taste level.

After your pork has cooled a little glean through your spinach leaves {I recommend not using baby spinach for the best size wraps.

Place your spinach leaves in positions conducive for optimal pulled pork holding, top with delicious, crunchy Dandy Ministick Radishes and voila, an easy, healthy, delicious meal:

    Oh my wow, these look so good! I am on a huge lettuce wrap/cup kick why did I never think to use spinach. So many more nutrients then lettuce.

    Those look good! I make a version that is pretty much vegetarian (we limit meat in our house), but we MUST have the radishes in it. Radishes are so yummy!

    I met them at Camp Blogaway this year…they have these cool celery straws that aren’t sold here in the states (yet). I didn’t know they also offered radish. Great recipe although I’d have to vegetarianize it : )

    Great Radish Recipes! Tried the Cinnamon Sugar Radish Chips. I have never been able to get the twins to eat radishes, no matter how if prepared them until they tried this radish recipe. They love it and wanted more!

    I like radishes because of their crunch. I have been using them as a topping on sandwiches and I appreciate a new recipe.

    I love the crunch that radishes add. If you haven’t tried them grilled or roasted, you should! They get a little sweet and are absolutely delicious!
