NUTRITIONAL NUGGET.....R is for radishes

These tiny veggies may not look like they’ll give you much more than a tasty crunch, but try this for size:

  • Radishes are low in energy, fat and sodium and high in fibre. - They are a source of folate and vitamin C. - 10 radishes count as one of your 5 a day and provide over 10% of the Reference Intake for folate and vitamin C.
    Check out these 3 ways to enjoy radishes:
  1. Simple salad: Keep them whole or slice finely for a colourful addition to any salad
  2. Curry them: yes, radishes add texture and colour to curries! Simply throw sliced radishes into your favourite curry and heat through.
  3. Red dip: Their vibrant colour helps liven up any dish. Add finely sliced radishes to Greek yogurt, cracked black pepper, and chopped fresh coriander leaves and then scatter with pomegranate seeds.
