Harvesting & Cooking Daikon (White Radish) Soup For Dinner

This is the 2nd and last harvest of my daikon or white radish. This last batch were slower in their growth and some didn't even form radish but overall, I am happy with the harvest.
I will be using the daikon to boil soup. I remember reading somewhere that the leaves can also be used together to boil soup but I was not sure, so this time I didn't use the leaves.
I removed the leaves and washed the diakons.
I used the leaves as compost for my plants.
The diakons forming a pyramid with the longest at 8 inches.
I also harvested some snake beans and a small white bitter gourd/
I stir fried the white bitter gourd and snake beans with chopped garlic and salt to taste.
And we can eat the stir fried vegetables with the above homemade sambal belacan or spicy dried prawns paste.
I used the harvested daikon to boil soup with roasted pork bone which has less fat than the roasted pig trotter. This time, I added goji berries and red dates and salt to taste. The soup turned out very tasty and was just nice for a warm evening.
After being dormant for quite a long time, I saw a white rain lily bloom when I was watering the plants.


So let it grow, and don't try to squirm out of your problems.

For when your patience is finally in full bloom,

then you will be ready for anything,

strong in character, full and complete.

(James 1:4, The Living Bible-TLB)

  16. Love the look of those daikons! But I see, yes, one lil fella hardly as any root. The leaves are so vibrant and green, seems a waste not to eat them.
