I saw this on 30 Minute Meals. I've never had cooked radishes but they looked yummy. Putting this here for safekeeping.

I have to respectfully disagree with the other commenter. These are amazing. I make these ALL THE TIME but I usually omit the shallot because I never have many fancy ingredients in my pantry and I'm generally too cheap and lazy to go to the grocery store often. Anyway, these are a great low cal, low carb, tasty side dish...or main dish if you love radishes like I do. Once cooked, the radish doesn't taste anything like it does when it's almost tastes like a combo of potato and parsnip. That's why these are so great on a diet! Try it - you might be surprised. I've made these for a lot of folks and the reviews are usually resoundingly positive.

I did not have chicken stock, but I had about a cup of chicken broth. I thawed that and added 1/2 c. water and 3 bouillon cubes. I followed the rest of the recipe, except I substituted garlic/onion for the shallot.. I might have added a tad too much salt, BUT it's delicious. I had a hard time leaving the radishes alone while I reduced the sauce. I love radishes, be they "strong" or a bit more mellow. I think the cooking mellowed these slightly. Great dish.

Loved this. I chose this recipe to introduce my children to radishes. They love cooked turnip, and my 8 year old asked right away if they were related. The sweet and flavourful sauce was excellent. I will be making this again.
