Braised Radishes and Leeks

Braised Radishes and Leeks

Makes 2-3 servings.

2 Red Dog watermelon radish
2 Red Dog leeks
2 tablespoon olive oil
¾ cup vegetable broth – or enough to cover the vegetables ¾ of the way
5 thyme sprigs
Sea salt – to taste
Black pepper – to taste

Prepare the radishes by trimming off the tails and chopping into large dice. Prepare the leeks by slicing off the ends and dark green part of the plant. You will only use the white and light green part. Rinse this part to remove any sand or grit, and slice each one in half lengthwise to get 4 long leek slices.

In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat the olive oil and add the radishes and leeks. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes. Add just enough broth to cover the veggies ¾ of the way (approximately ¾ cup). Add the thyme sprigs. Bring everything to a boil, cover, and turn heat to low. Simmer until the vegetables are tender but not falling apart, about 15 to 20 minutes. 

Remove vegetables from the skillet. Pour some of the liquid over the vegetables before serving, season with salt and pepper, and enjoy!
