Low carb pasta common questions

What is a daikon radish

If you haven’t made daikon radish noodles before, it may become your new favorite spiralized veggie! The daikon noodles are the perfect keto pasta that actually has a good texture when cooked!

If you are wondering what the heck a daikon radish is, don’t worry, I was in the same boat this time last year.

My first experience with daikon radish was in my CSA box. I actually got a purple daikon radish and had absolutely no idea what to do with it. So I pulled out all my cookbooks and found a recipe in my Inspiralize Everything cookbook.

Daikon radish is a long white (sometimes green or purple) root vegetable that resembles a GIANT white carrot. It’s actually a cruciferous vegetable (like cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli) and is extremely easy to cook with!

I tried the daikon radish raw and it was very radish-y. Sharp, crisp, but very refreshing. Not sure how else to explain the flavor.

What I discovered was that when you cook the radish, that sharp radish flavor subsides and you are left with a very delicious noodle! This mellow flavor makes daikon noodles the perfect keto pasta!

Substitutions

  • Daikon radish: you could also use zucchini or summer squash for your noodle base in place of daikon radish noodles but the texture will not be the same. A better choice would be spaghetti squash.
  • Olive oil: You could also use avocado oil, ghee or garlic olive oil.
  • Everything bagel seasoning: this is a combination of garlic flakes, onion flakes, sesame seeds, poppy seeds and flakes of salt. You could use garlic powder, fresh garlic or shallots in place of the everything bagel seasoning.
