I hope that you are not tired of daikon...







A daikon is quite a lot to go through, really. Initially I got one to grate a bit for a tempura sauce, then I made this salad, then I used it here... and I still had half left. So today I decided to eat more in salad, with red beetroot. I used a Japanese plum flower cutter, and a small heart cutter. I just added a drop of olive oil and salt before serving. Sill have lots of daikon left, maybe I could make Chiarina-ina rawvioli (the cutting with a biscuit cutter is the same, in fact when I saw it today I thought, modestly, two great minds think alike :-D), or maybe I can cook the rest in a Japanese broth... any ideas?

  1. Ciao Ale! Chi avrebbe mai potuto pensare che questa meraviglia fosse Daikon... sembrano biscottini! L'idea di fare dei "Raw..violi" non la scarterei, sarei proprio curiosa di vederli =)
    Un abbraccio e buona giornata, Chiara

  3. Rawvioli are sooo good...but if you've lots of daikon you can make pickles :) Once I made sakura shaped daikon pickles, colored with beetroot juice :)
    Sorry for mistakes, I know you speak Italian but I'm trying to learn English!
    Thank you so much Ale, you're very nice

    1. No problem, write in English, I make mistakes too, but blogging is fast, and colloquial! I thought of pickles too, you see, we think alike :-)!

  4. Non conosco il daikon, ma mi piace comunque tantissimo il modo in cui l'hai presentato in questo post. E utilizzerei questo carinissimo abbinamento per un bento, magari sopra delle foglie di lattuga. Un consiglio un po' banale, ma non avendo mai mangiato questo ortaggio non mi viene in mente nient'altro ^^''!

  9. I use daikon in soups, curries and stews. You're right about the size though, 1 is too much. Although those are all a bit heavy for the tropical weather we are having at the moment. Maybe a cold miso/soba/daikon would be a nice refreshing meal?

    Your beetroot/daikon slices are cute and remind me of shrewsberries.

    1. I got some nice soba from Japan, I may make the cold one and use a little grated for the sauce, but today I roasted a few slices and then put them in a parmigiana with eggplants and zucchini, and it was good :-)

  10. belli i tuoi cuoricini di daikon!
    dunque, a me piace moltissimo e lo uso sia crudo che cotto, in insalate, nelle zuppe, nelle minestre (con il miso, tagliato a listarelle sottilissime, è ottimo), negli sformati....ma uno intero a casa mia dura due giorni al massimo perchè ce lo sgranocchiamo crudo intinto a volte nello sciroppo d'acero ^^

  11. Con lo sciroppo d'acero mi e' nuova davvero :-), Oggi ne ho arrostite un po' di fette e messo uno strato nella parmigiana fra melanzane e zucchine. Ci stava bene!
