I’d been spending the last few weeks waiting for my radishes to mature when suddenly the thought hit me
‘Dave, you don’t actually like radishes do you?‘
Also I had planted them very thickly which meant that few had matured. So what was I to do?
Try making some radish pesto, that’s what.
I took about 50g of walnuts from the cupboard and toasted them,whizzed that with half a clove of garlic (I’ve gone off garlic a bit this week after a bout of sickness last week), blitzed that with about 35g of radish leaf, added some extra virgin olive oil in a stream to get a nice consistency, stirred in some Parmesan-esque Sainsbury Basics cheese, a bit of lemon juice and salt and pepper for seasoning.
I had it with pasta and it didn’t taste as bad as I first feared. It was definitely better than eating the radish itself.
