Radishes are Red: Valentine’s Day Meal Ideas

I recently received beautiful watermelon radishes in my Imperfect Produce CSA (Community-Sourced Agriculture) box. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I was inspired with the passionately pink-ish red radishes. Radishes have a bit of a bite on their own, so I decided to create a savory sweet dish that diminishes the bitterness, and highlights the beautiful colors.

Ingredients:
-1 bag miracle rice, prepared according to package directions
-1 large watermelon radish, sliced thin
-1.5 cup roasted broccoli
-2 tsp coconut oil
-1 tsp minced garlic
-1 tbsp sliced ginger (sushi ginger)
-3 tbsp Bragg’s liquid aminos
-sriracha, to taste

Directions:

1) Combine all ingredients, besides miracle rice, in a small pot on the stove. Let simmer together for about 15 minutes, or until the radish is tender and the flavor has mellowed.

2) Add in the prepared miracle rice and let sit on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3) Enjoy! This is delicious on its own, but also goes surprisingly well over greens with an Asian-inspired dressing (think miso, soy, or ginger flavors).

Doesn’t this just look like a romantic Valentine’s Day meal? Although I can’t say your breath will be great..
