Cute, crunchy and peppery, radishes are a pretty addition to any plate. They’re best eaten raw, and can be easily sliced into salads and sandwiches, or enjoyed whole and dipped into houmous for a healthy snack.

The young leaves are delicious in salads or cooked in the same way as spinach. They’re also well suited to stir-fries or quick, Asian-style pickles because they hold their crunch and don’t go soggy. Check out our very easy ways with the perfectly peppery radish.
