Radishes for Lunch: Stalks, Leaves, and All

Posted by

I was in the market yesterday. A man standing next to me pick up a gorgeous bunch of radishes -- big and hearty with purply stalks and leafy greens.  He asked Nivia, the lovely farmer, to lop off the leaves.  She begged him no and explained that the tops contained so many vitamins and nutrients that it was a crime to throw them away. Instead, Nivia offered a simple recipe: three ingredients (chop and sauté with a glogg of olive oil, pinch of sea salt and crack of pepper).  The man, despite being in the market) was flabbergasted at the thought of having to cook.  So I took them -- lucky me --  and did exactly what Nivia suggested.

They are divine -- the type of thing that instantly makes you feel good -- strong, alive and full of Qi.  Perfect lunch. Perfect day.

For a bit of staying power try the tender greens mounded over toasted grainy bread and a tablespoon of pumpkin seed butter.

  • Thanks for your advice on this blog. 1 thing I would wish to say is that often purchasing electronics items over the Internet is certainly not new. The truth is, in the past 10 years alone, the marketplace for online electronics has grown considerably. Today, you will find practically any specific electronic gizmo and devices on the Internet, ranging from cameras along with camcorders to computer spare parts and video games consoles.
