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

Ingredients:

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.
