Sautéed Radish Greens


It seems like such a waste to throw away or compost beautiful greens. Radish greens have a slightly peppery taste similar to arugula. They are best fresh from the farmers' market.

2 servings


  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons butter

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 4 medium purple radishes, sliced

  • 1 bunch radish greens, washed and chopped

  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese


  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat until butter melts. Add garlic and sauté until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add radish slices and sauté to bring out their sweetness, 1 to 2 minutes. Add greens and sauté until wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Remove from the heat and stir in feta cheese.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute sweet onion or shallots for the garlic.

Choose a large bunch of radishes to have enough greens for 2 servings.

Editor's Note:

Wash beet greens the same way you would collard greens: Cut the roots off. Fill a large bowl with cold water and submerge the greens. Swirl them around so that the grit frees itself. Use a colander to drain the dirty water. Repeat the process until the water stays clean.
