Simple Supper Friday: Turkey Radish Hash

Turkey radish hash

It’s that time again … it’s Simple Supper Friday! Tonight’s meal is inspired by one of Mark Sisson’s recipes in his cookbook, Primal Blueprint Quick & Easy Meals. I took his pork and radish hash and modified it slightly, making it my own. Instead of making it with leftover pork, as the recipe suggests, I used leftover turkey burgers that I made the other night. Remember, I’m not a pork fan anyway. I also added one chopped turkey andouille sausage, which added a nice zest. Here’s my version of Mark’s recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp grass-fed butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large bunch of radishes, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 leftover turkey burgers, cut into small pieces
  • 1 turkey andouille sausage, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth, preferably homemade
  • 1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Avocado slices
Directions:
  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat and add onion and radishes. Sauté five minutes.
  2. Add chopped turkey burgers, sausage and broth. Simmer five minutes more until liquid is evaporated. Garnish with parsley and add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve with avocado slices.

It’s funny, I never thought much about cooking radishes, but after making this recipe, I think I prefer to eat my radishes cooked. It tones down the strong, pungent flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind raw radishes, so long as they’re cut thin and not too spicy, but they taste much more pleasant cooked. Next time, I think I’ll try roasting the radishes. Have any of you ever roasted radishes? If so, what’s your take on it?

    Roasted the larger radish named ‘purple heart’ aka chinese red meat with oil and cumin. Liked them just fine but I was after a turnip. “There are no mistakes, just pleasant surprises.”

    Nice! Where do you find a radish like that … farmer’s market? I don’t know that I’ve seen one before. Thanks for your input, by the way 🙂

      New Seasons Market carries that radish time-to-time. 🙂
