This week's Crop Share is going to be RAD! Why? Because you're getting a bundle of RADishes! If you're a radish skeptic, fear not, because do I have a recipe for you. Or more like Crop Share member Misse Welch has a recipe for you. During the Early Spring round, Misse sent us this recipe as an entry into our Nalls Next Top Food Blogger Contest, and we've been drooling over it ever since and waiting for another go-round of radishes so we could share this great recipe with you all. So from Misse's kitchen to yours, we give you delicious way to prepare radishes. Because we all know, cream cheese makes every thing amazing!
5 oz cream cheese
1 cup radishes, quartered
1-1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 bunch chives, chopped
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic
I threw the radishes, chives, garlic and parsley in my food processor until finely chopped, and then added the lemon juice and cream cheese (cubed to make it easier). Once it was combines to the consistency of a dip, I added sea salt and pepper to taste and put it in a serving dish. I sprinkled it with paprika and it was ready to eat, more like devour! It can be eaten with veggies, potato chips, or I even used it as a sandwich spread!
