Two words: buttered radishes.

Most people don’t really get excited about radishes, but that’s just because they’ve never eaten them served on top of a piece of buttered bread with salt. This simple meal ― made famous by the French ― is a revelation and makes it clear just how great this peppery root vegetable can be.

While atop of buttery bread might be the best way to eat radishes, there are a few other recipes that also make this produce shine. Radishes are great when roasted, grilled and sautéed. They make salsas exciting and they pickle exceptionally well. One taste of radishes prepared like that, and you’ll soon see there’s more to this ingredient than salads.

These are the recipes you need to finally see the radish’s full potential.
