Radish Sprouts

japanese-food-kaiware-daikon It’s nutritious containing vitamins and minerals. It’s cheap. It’s probably one of the most versatile vegetables. Easy to cook — In many cases, you don’t even have to cook. And it’s also easy to cultivate by yourself if you want to, and even children can do! So, what can we ask more for a single sprout food? Let’s get one or two packs for dinner on your way home. Recipes? Prepare some cheese sticks and pick up some Kaiware Daikon and wrap them around with a sheet of ham for a quick and neat hors-d’oeuvre. Or sprinkle some Katsuo Bushi, Shōyu (soy sauce) and a little bit of sesame oil, and a simple and healthy Japanese salad is done! Or cut them into pieces and mix them with egg and some broth, sugar and Shōyu to make a delicious omelette. Recipes seem to be limitless, and it’s all up to you. In whatever way it’s cooked, its refreshingly pungent flavour makes your eating experience zesty!
