Not What You'd Expect "Home Fries"

Submitted by: LISTLOADRUN

Introduction

I do not like radishes. Sorry, but I don't. Ive been reading about how good they are for you though, so when I heard someone say how their flavor changed when they were cooked, I decided to play around some. What I came up with is a fantastic faux-home fry (at least we think so!). You won't fool anyone into thinking they're potatoes, but I bet no one suspects it's radishes!

We had it tonight along side an egg white/turkey/onion omelet - yum!

Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    small bag of radishes. sliced thin (I used a mandolin to get thin even slices - once cliced it was about 1.5 cups)
    1/2 cup sliced onions (whatever kind you like - we used red)
    a pinch of kosher salt
    a pinch of freshly ground black pepper
    a pinch of onion powder
    (add any other seasonings you'd like!)
    1 tsp olive oil

Directions

warm olive oil in pan over medium heat
add radishes, onion and seasoning, stir together. Cover pan, stirring occasionally, until mixture starts to brown. Unlike home fries, this won't truly stick together. Cook to your desired done-ness - we cooked ours until everything was that yummy caramelized brown color.

This made 2 small servings - a little less than a 1/4 cup each? When I make this again, I might double it to get a bigger serving
