Radish Cakes Recipe

2 cups of grated radish (daikon preferred)
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped (red, yellow or green)
1 clove of garlic, minced
3/4 cup of bread crumbs (more may be needed)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
oregano, basil and thyme
sea salt

Cooking Instructions:
Mix the grated radish with salt in a large bowl and refrigerate for about 30 minutes, in order to soften. Drain out any excess moisture and stir in the onion, bell pepper, garlic, pepper and herbs. Once this is mixed, add the bread crumbs and egg. Mix together well, and form into round patties. You may need additional bread crumbs, or you can even add a little flour if the consistency is not quite right.

Heat a large skillet with a little oil if you like, or you can use 1/2 water and 1/2 vinegar with a little lemon juice to give them a tangy flavor. Saute the patties over medium heat until they are nicely browned. Since they contain raw egg, so you will want to cook them through. Let them sit covered on paper towels until they are ready to serve. They can also be served on top of pasta with red sauce for a beautiful and delicious meal!


Daikon radishes are high in Vitamin C and used for skin health, respiratory health and bone health, among a few. Local organic daikons are in season and can be found at the Farmers Market.
