CSA (my) Week 6 and Daikon Radish Chips

Today was week 6 for my CSA veggies from KYV Farms but I haven’t had a chance to make a recipe plan so we’ll just have to wing it.  I can’t wait to try the beets, mainly because I haven’t liked them when I’ve ordered them in restaurants but I’m told I will like them fresh so I want to see if I really am a beet person after all.
Since I was having the minestrone soup leftovers I decided to make some Daikon radish chips (recipe below) in the toaster oven as an appetizer.  I was surprised the thinner ones actually came out crispy and they all took on the seasoning flavors beautifully. I didn’t use a mandolin this time but next time I definitely will just so they all cook uniformly and I might try out some different seasoning mixes just to keep things interesting.
Can you believe how gorgeous these veggie photos always come out?  I can’t take the credit. I almost never have to adjust the color or lighting.  They really are that fresh and gorgeous.
Thank you, Vivian and Francisco, for all your hard work to provide us with these organically raised vegetables that nourish me and my family.  I can only hope that more and more people will catch on to the value of the small farm and CSA.

And Daikon Radish!
I love these as they are so low in calories and have lots of vitamin C.
I did a quick radish recipe that is so easy it almost isn’t a recipe but I’ll tell you what I did…
Daikon Radish Chips
1 Daikon radish, sliced thinly (a mandolin will yield the best results)
Olive oil spray
Coarse sea salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, to taste
1. Preheat broiler.  Spray a baking sheet with olive oil and lay the radish slices down.  Spray the tops with olive oil.  Broil for 5-8 minutes until just beginning to brown.  Flip and broil second side 5-8 minutes.  Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
***Note:  Watch the radish closely under the broiler to ensure they do not over brown.  Cooking times will vary with thickness of radish slices and proximity to heating elements.
