I like these, but I struggled to figure out what to do with 2 pounds of them. They are quite mild tasting for radishes (not really peppery or spicy at all), so here's what I ended up doing with them:
0.5 lb sliced with a mandolin and quick-pickled in the fridge (you can google plenty of recipes for this). Great on tacos!
0.5 lb used in Asian chicken soup:
This was really good and the radishes are mild so they don't overpower the dish. They reminded me a little bit like water chestnuts with their crunchiness.
1 lb used in in a daikon radish parantha:
In this context, they remind me a little bit like zucchini: they add moisture and nutrients to the flatbread but again, they don't dominate the flavor.
