Radical Radishes 4 College Cooking

Radishes!!! Peppery, spicy, sometimes even hot and fiery! Most folks would say they are nothing more than a salad bar condiment, but I would argue that in combination with crusty baguette, butter, and salt...they (whoever 'they' might be) may change their minds--budget-wise and flavor-wise!! 


This can be especially useful if there is no grocery budget for meat; or, if you are reducing meat, or have gone vegan altogether! Simple but satisfying! 

I add on some arugula and drizzle with olive oil--cheap and good for college cooking--great snack midday or as a light supper!
