Radish for fussy eaters (no I haven’t gone crazy!)
I discovered something totally by accident and I thought of fussy eaters!
I wanted to have a radish in my salad, but the skin was dirty, and I couldn’t get it clean enough. I peeled the skin off and then realised the inside was crunchy but without the normal spicy bite of the radish.
Looking it up online, the spice is in the skin.
Removing the skin leaves a food that could work for fussy eaters because:
– It’s white – good colour for picky eaters as it’s non-threatening and the same colour as many familiar foods
– It’s crunchy. A frequently accepted texture for fussy eaters.
– It’s not dry, but not juicy either so texturally not a bad one!
It would work with dips or just as an alternative to raw veg like carrots that are commonly accepted.
