What is a Daikon Radish?
Seriously, if you haven’t made daikon radish noodles before, it may become your new favorite spiralized veggie! The daikon radish 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. But 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 radish noodles the perfect low carb pasta!
How to make low carb pasta noodles from daikon radish:
- First, peel your daikon radish with a vegetable peeler and cut off the top and the bottom of the radish
- Next set up the radish on the Inspiralizer, to blade D to spiralize the radish into thin angel hair pasta noodles
- Once the noodles are spiralized, add them to a hot skillet with some garlic olive oil.
- Cook the low carb pasta for 6-8 minutes and serve hot or cold with your favorite toppings!
