I love daikon! It is such an versatile ingredient. You can pickle it, use it in a salad, shred it for a raw slaw, spiralize it for raw pastas, wrap it up, and fry it up in a pain to create delicious dishes that will remind you of cooked noodles!
Today I used it in place of brown rice pasta for this delicious cooked Sesame Noodle Dish.
Spicy Sesame Noodles
- 1 medium Daikon, spiralized (around 6 cups)
- 2 t toasted sesame oil
- 5 scallions, diced
- 1 T soy sauce
- 1 T siracha
- 1/4 c Wasabi Ginger Dressing
- 2 T toasted sesame seeds
Believe it or not, Daikon noodles are delicious cooked with red sauce and pesto. The radish bit mellows out and it really soaks up the flavor of your sauce.
I'm thrilled to say that this is the daikon that I bought almost a month ago for $.29/lb which was maybe one of my best scores of all time! I usually pay around $.79-$.99/lb.
I've been asked by a few people about the reduced produce bin that I frequent. It is a chain store, but very localish one called Market Basket. I know they exists in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, but I'm not sure if they are in any other states? I recognize how fortunate I am to have access to such good prices.
