Daikon

(DIE kuhn) A long, carrot-shaped, white, Japanese radish. Daikons range from 6 to 15 inches in length with an average diameter of 2 to 3 inches. The daikon's flesh is juicy and white with a mildly spicy, radishlike flavor.

Recipes

  1. Braised Short Ribs with Daikon and Glass Noodles

    These tender short ribs are served in an intense broth made sweet with mirin and brown sugar and dark with soy sauce and sherry. "This is a variation of a Korean dish called kalbi tang," Sang Yoon says.

  2. Sunny Raw Nori Rolls

    Blended, soaked sunflower seeds replace cooked rice in these colorful veggie rolls. Collard leaves add firmness and keep the rolls from getting soggy. For the filling, you can substitute your favorite raw veggies, including jicama, radish, daikon , burdock, or even raw pickles!

  3. Crunchy Burdock with Toasted Sesame Dressing

    Beloved in Japan, burdock is a long, slender root vegetable that resembles a stick. Beneath the bark-like skin, burdock's flesh is crisp, earthy, sweet, and mineral-like. If you can't find burdock, try this recipe with raw beets, jicama, or daikon radish grated or cut into small, thin sticks.
