This tasty meal has an ingredient in it that is fairly new to me but I have found some great uses for it. I’ve never really been a radish fan until I heard about the Diakon radish. It’s a mild winter radish that doesn’t have that strong bitey taste that you might find with the red ones but it has a ton of health benefits! It’s a very nutrient dense food and very low in calories. Diakons are said to help the body fight bacteria and viruses which is a great veggie to have around in the winter time for that alone. I also noticed that the flavor didn’t take over the whole dish but rather complimented it.
I’m always trying to work on my digestive health so I’ve been eating a really great non-soy miso soup. I’ve also started using the miso paste to flavor dishes and loved the results! In this recipe I tried to add it in at the end to keep the good probiotics thriving and healthy and it worked well!
Of course, I had to have Shiitakes in there for the Vitamin D. I use those in everything it seems along with fresh garlic. This meal is brimming with healthy ingredients!
