Whether you have an excess crop of radishes or just love all low carb radish recipes, then making this butter is a great idea. With a recipe like this, I would usually list the suggested uses at the end, but because this recipe is rather unusual, I thought I would list them first:
- Spread on toast (check out where to buy low carb bread)
- Add a dollop to a grilled steak
- Slather it over steamed low carb veggies
- Serve it with low carb bagels
- Add it to roasted fish, like cod or haddock
So why radishes? Well, a medium radish contains just 0.1g net carb. That makes them SUPER keto friendly! Although adding them to salads is a common use for radishes, they are SO good when roasted! And they are good for you too: they are a great source of vitamins E, A, C, B6, and K, antioxidants, fiber, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron and manganese. Move over, avocado – we've found the new low carb superfood!
How to Make Radish Butter
Trim the radishes and place them in a food processor. Process until very finely chopped.
Add some softened butter and process again until as smooth as possible.
Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper as desired. This generally depends on the pepperiness of the radishes – the mixture might not need any pepper at all.
Store the radish butter in the fridge, covered. Remove from the fridge 5-10 minutes before serving to allow it to soften slightly. Eat within three days.
