Daikon Radish Skin and Carrot Kinpira

Daikon Radish Skin and Carrot Kinpira

I made a veggie side dish for a bento. This is a great way to use daikon radish peels!


Skins of daikon radish
3/4 of a daikon radish
Daikon radish
4 cm
Daikon radish leaves
to taste
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
Toasted sesame seeds
to taste
2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon
Shichimi spice
as needed


1. Cut the daikon radish skins, daikon, and carrots (with the skins) into block sticks. Wash the daikon radish leaves (with some daikon attached) well and cut into small pieces.
2. Stir fry with sesame oil.
3. Once they have cooked, add in the daikon leaves and the toasted sesame seeds, and stir fry.
4. Add in the mirin, soy sauce, and shichimi spice. Stir fry until the moisture evaporates. Then it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made "Chinese-Style Simmered Chicken Wings & Daikon Radish with Star Anise" Recipe ID: 1688240 and used the leftover daikon peels to make this.
