Daikon and Broccoli Stir-Fry

When I lived in Japan, I was introduced to all sorts of new food!  One vegetable that I fell in love with was daikon, which is essentially a huge white radish.  In Japan, people often pickle them or put them inside sushi rolls.  Aside from going to the local Japanese restaurant here, I haven't had it since.  I was ecstatic to grow it here during the summer!  We pulled a "daikon" out of our garden about 2 weeks ago, it was way too small.  Yesterday, we pulled another one out...they're starting to get there!

We wanted to use up the medium-sized daikon before our wedding.  We're leaving for our honeymoon for two weeks and are trying to use up all our fresh foods!  I got this recipe from wal*mart.  They have free recipes in the produce section of our wal*mart.  I had to change some items to make it vegetarian.  The end result was soooo good.  We're very pleased with the results.  Definitely can't wait to get more daikon out of garden after our honeymoon.

On this note, this might be my last blog until the first week of August.  Sorry folks, I'm tying the knot!

this is a daikon (a white radish)

  • 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp. less-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 daikon, cut into thin strips
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 
  • 1/4 cup cooked and chopped spinach
  • Rice
  1. In small bowl, stir together broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch and sugar
  2. Heat large skilled and add oil, when hot proceed to step 3
  3. Add daikon and broccoli; stir-fry in hot oil until crisp-tender
  4. Add sauce mixture and garlic and spinach.  Cook and stir until sauce thickens (approximately 10 mins)
Serve over rice!
