An Illustrated Guide to Radishes

by Lucy Engelman on June 18, 2012

in All Recipes, Vegetables

This pretty how-to on radishes from Lucy Engelman, a new contributor to Eat Boutique, has me thinking so many things like, I desperately need to take a drawing class. I should spend more time in the garden. Recipes topped with a fried egg make me lick my lips. Lucy’s creative drawings, grocery list and recipe leave no excuses why you can’t grow your own radishes and eat them too. Say hello to Lucy, friends!  -Maggie

    My radishes this year have been out of control…so good though, particularly when sauteed with the greens, and tossed with some fresh pasta, garlic, red pepper, chives, and goat cheese. YUM!
