Today I introduce you to “How to Cook Simmered Daikon Radish”.
If you are a little bit tired of eating vegetables, you should try this.
It is delicious, flavorful and low in calories. It has a soft and juicy texture. It is way too good, so I can’t stop eating once I dig in!
Daikon is high in vitamins, minerals, fiber and so on. Also it is easy to digest, so we traditionally eat daikon with other green vegetables and rice porridge after new year’s (we eat a lot of big meals around New Years).
This recipe is very easy and the dish can be stored in the refrigerator for a maximum of 3 days.
In my meals, I always have rice, soup and some various side dishes which I make ahead of time. This is an incredibly healthy dish but you need other nutrition as well. This dish can be the main dish for me, but it actually has the nutrition of a side dish.
Here is the cooking video on my YouTube channel:
Peel and cut daikon. Simmer with the seasonings for 20 minutes. That’s it!!
I use a knife to peel daikon. This is because daikon has thick fiber under its peel. The fiber doesn’t cook through easily so if you leave it, the final texture is not as good as if you peel it.
