Mmmm....Monday: Melissa's tastiest "fries"

These delicious fries are not fried at all. In fact, they are raw daikons! (A daikon is a kind of long white Asian radish, very mild in taste.)

This is one of my new most delicious (and quick) things to eat. All you need is:

  • daikon (you can use a turnip, carrots, sweet potato, or jicama instead. I like daikon best for its crisp juiciness!)

  • juice of 1/2 lemon

  • 1 Tbsp tamari

  • 1 clove garlic - chopped small or pressed

  • 1 Tbsp chili powder (I don't use the very spicy kind!)

  • a drizzle of olive oil

Just peel and chop the daikon (or turnip) into fry shapes, kind of like "julienne" chopping, if you're familiar with the term.

Then toss with the juice of 1/2 lemon, tamari, garlic, olive oil and chili powder.

That's it! And it's soooo good.

Love to all,
~ Melissa
