How Do I Eat It?
Radish sprouts taste like fresh radishes. Peppery but not too hot, spicy without being eye watering. An intense flavor and color combo to add to salad and wraps. Don't get fooled by their cute look: they will overpower your dish, use them sparingly at first!
They are used in some Asian dishes, especially the Daikon variety. Add them last minute to a hot meal, as they don't like heat.
