I recently ran a Spiralizer Masterclass at my Explore Raw Cookery School in London! Yay! Not only did we have loads of fun spiralizing the life out of a mountain of veggies and fruit I managed to answer lots of the ‘silly’ questions that often arise when exploring a new topic. And the thing is none of them were silly questions at all! One of the questions that really stuck in my mind was ‘can you spiralize this? can you spiralize that?’ and I always respond with ‘try it!’.
Learning something new has to be experienced but I loved the response when I asked the group ‘Can you spiralize a radish, do you think?’ the answer was ‘no!’ from the group – well their eyes surely lit up when I said that yes, indeed you can spiralize a radish!
With some spiralizers you need a large radish and to use the smallest blade to get lovely fine noodles. With some of the chunkier spiralizers this is quite a tough job and you definitely need a large veg to get the swirls going. You can also use the ribbon setting although as radishes are so small you may get just one curl.
But the results are never as good as when you use a spiralizer with fine blades such as my ProSpiralizer™ You get 4 blades (ooh cool!) and this is the spiralizer that I have had and have used now for years. No faults and no complaints! It’s the one that I use at all my retreats and Raw Juice Camps!
If you have a spiralizer with sharp cutting blades and ‘small teeth’ you can indeed spiralize the smallest of radishes as shown in the picture!
The ProSpiralizer™ is my spiralizer of choice and the one I recommend!
Radish spirals are beautiful sprinkled on salads and make a stunning plate decoration for any dish. They are perfect for pickling (yes!) and will get you back on the radish wagon. I must admit I am not a massive radish fan but now that I can spiralize them that’s all changing now!
