Author Notes

While its not hard to recklessly toss away the green tops of daikon radishes & beets when they're store bought, the whole equation changes when you've grown the vegetable yourself or if the produce is fresh & Organic to boot. I've made this dish multiple times with various greens that adorn root vegetables, Home grown Radish, or a bunch of golden beet greens from Whole foods. Its a great way of getting 2 dishes from one produce. A great healthy deal! —Panfusine
