Daikon- a mild-flavored, large, white East Asian radish

I know, I know, I just can’t stop raving about the place! (see past blog post) But it really is that good. Here’s a simple recipe Angelina is sharing with us and is a great way to use diakons, sweet potatoes or other winter root vegetables you’re just not sure what to do with.

Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and Diakon


thinly sliced diakon

thinly sliced potatoes

3 cups half and half (or milk)

2 cups shredded cheese

a little fresh grated nutmeg

black pepper and salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350. In a saucepan gently heat to a soft boil the milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Butter a baking dish, ladle some of the milk on the bottom, then alternate layers of potato, diakon, cheddar and milk.  Finish with a milk and cheese layer and a few dots of butter and bake 30-40 min till bubbly.  Let rest at least 20 min before serving.

As a side note, sliced kohlrabi is excellent in this dish as well.  Also, you can play with what cheese you use based on your budget.
