03 Nov Radish Toast with Parsley Butter
Sometimes I look at the share we receive and immediately know what I want to create. Other times I pick a specific ingredient to showcase. This week I was headed in a completely different direction- I had an idea, but then I kept thinking about the beautiful winter radishes we have gotten the past few weeks. Their color alone makes any recipe a hit. The winter radishes- daikon, purple daikon, black, or watermelon- can all be used in this recipe. It also utilizes the fresh parsley and arugula from this week and garlic from previous weeks.
1 head roasted garlic (see below for recipe)
Parsley butter (see below for recipe)
Arugula parsley sauce (see below for recipe)
1-2 winter radishes
4 slices of bread (NORD sourdough bread works great)
Sea salt, lemon zest, finely chopped parsley- for garnish
- Roast garlic. Then make parsley butter and arugula parsley sauce using below recipes.
- Thinly slice radishes. I used a mandolin set on the thinnest setting.
- Toast bread.
- Assemble toast. Top toasted bread with parsley butter. Layer radishes on top and then drizzle with the arugula parsley sauce. Sprinkle with sea salt and lemon zest. Garnish with finely chopped parsley.
1 whole bulb of garlic
1 tsp olive oil
- Slice top ¼ of an inch off of garlic bulb to expose the top of the cloves.
- Place on a sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle with oil.
- Wrap up in the foil and bake at 375°F for 50 minutes.
- Remove and let cool.
- Squeeze out each roasted garlic clove.
- Great for dressings, to spread on toast, etc.
- Store in an airtight container in fridge.
4 Tbsp salted butter, softened
2 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 cloves roasted garlic
- Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.

- Use for above recipe but also would be great on potatoes or your favorite steak.
