Quick Dish - Daikon Radish to the Rescue

Quick Dish - Daikon Radish to the Rescue

This is great for when you need a quick, refreshing side dish.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Daikon radish
about 10 cm
Sesame oil
2 tablespoons
Dashi stock granules
2 and 1/2 teaspoons
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Bonito flakes
to taste
White sesame seeds
to taste
Shiso leaves, optional
1 to 2


1. For the daikon, I used the spicy root tip, but I recommend using the top.
2. Slice into 7-8 cm sticks.
3. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan, then sauté the daikon sticks on medium-high heat. When they start to become translucent, sprinkle dashi stock granules, then drizzle soy sauce into the pan from the sides.
4. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with shaved bonito and white sesame seeds, then serve! How fast is that?
5. If you have shiso leaves, slice and sprinkle on top! That will add a nice touch, and a tasty accent.
