A simple dish of boiled white radish topped with green onions. A white radish can also be called diakon. This is the 3rd time I have used a rice cooker to boil the white radish. I did not add any seasoning. Just simple and natural. Boiling food is very healthy. A white radish can be found at most supermarkets.
To prepare the white radish, I used a small radish. I was able to use the whole white radish. If you use a big white radish, and you cannot finish it, you can use half of it and save the other half in the fridge to use next time. Peel the skin and put the knife at an angle. While turning, cut the white radish into pieces. I place all the white radish into a mixing bowl. Do not rinse the white radish again because you will take out all the delicious taste of the white radish inside.
All you need is the white radish because they take longer to cook. It takes about 25 minutes. To know if it’s tender. Insert a large toothpick. If it goes through, that means it is ready. If it’s not, you will need to cook it a bit longer. When it is all cooked, I use a skimmer spoon and scoop up all the white radish into a plate.
Kids and adults would love this white radish. It’s healthy and very delicious. I like this dish a lot. You can have these for lunch or dinner. The best combination that goes well with this dish is rice or noodles. The boiling water that is left in the rice cooker, you can drink it as soup or use it as a soup base for noodles. If you have never eaten the white radish, you can give it a try. When you make a lot, you can have it throughout the day. If you are a vegetarian, this can be a perfect dish to make. Try the recipe and enjoy.
