Why Radishes?

Did you know that radishes have a lot of great health benefits?  I grew up eating radishes from my dad’s garden and I planted radishes this spring in my own garden.

I was researching recipes using radishes and ran across a Quinoa recipe that includes radishes.  I’m always looking for a new recipe for quinoa (which is a great healthy alternative to pasta or rice).  This is a recipe that I put my own twist on using radishes, parsley, mint and basil from my garden!  The chopping was well worth the time.  For another twist, this recipe is also good with grilled marinated chicken breast or even on lettuce wraps.  Hope you enjoy!

You don’t need a lot of space to garden or grow radishes,  and there are several varieties of radishes that can be grown year round depending on where you live.  Give it a try.  You can even use a container to grow them in.
