Does anyone have any advice on how to cook daikon radish? I'm getting some in my Freshbox on Wednesday and I've never cooked with it before.

I've looked online, but I keep finding things like this, which is a little more effort than I was hoping to put in on a weeknight (or... ever, really).

If you need further ingredient inspiration, here is what else I'm getting.

Recipes would be awesome if you've got 'em!

I don't think I would ever be able to face that radish square thing on a plate without yelling "WHY ARE YOU NOT A WEDDING CAKE, DAMMIT?!"

This is my contribution to the discussion.

The Koreans like a good daikon radish, but mostly as kimchi - in other words, spiced and pickled. So I got nothin', unless you want to make up a big jar of radish kimchi. I have three (3!) different recipes for radish kimchi in my Korean cookbook.

Is the recipe in Korean?

Don't get me wrong, I love on some kimchi, but if I want it I will probably just buy it ready-made. I definitely think we should revisit me borrowing that cookbook some other time though. Provided the answer to the question above makes it of any use to me.

The recipes are in English. (Even at the short-lived peak of my Korean-speaking ability, a Korean language cookbook would have been basically useless to me.)

I will bring it the next time I visit - if you remind me that you want to borrow it.

I'd suggest simply grating it, or use a vegetable spiraler if you have one, and eat keep it raw; put it in a salad, or as a filling (along with other fillings) in some sushi!

Those both sound good!
