Boiled Radishes

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Metami

These taste a lot like new potatoes. The boiling takes the bite and heat out of them. NOTE: I have tried to cook them with meat in a crockpot like a roast and they do not turn out near as well.

It is amazing how closely these resemble new potatoes. The radish taste really does get boiled away. The texture is not quite the same (as another reviewer noted, they are a bit watery), but they are a great substitute for someone who has removed potatoes from their diet. They even looked like new red potatoes, because the bright red color gets boiled off. Thanks for the cool low-carb idea!
