Cooked Radish "ふろふき大根"

(posted; Japanese meal page)
I've been wondering how radish is cooked in European cooking because we mainly eat it by using soy source. It helps us a lot when we don't have much appetite.

*"furofuki-daikon. ふろふき大根"
From our dinner several days ago.  Minced chicken meat on top is cooked separately from the radish and thicken them with starch. I think the soup is delectable as well. 

From this page you can see other varieties of them;

*Fried Tofu (揚げ出し豆腐. agedashi-toufu)
And this one I cooked last night.  Grated radish is inevitable as it upgrade the tastes a lot.   Funny that like my father and late brother, grating radish is my husband's job.

We sometimes have grated radish just putting the soy source. It is especially good for our stomach as the amylase it contains won't be destroyed without heat.
And I wish I could figure out why my pictures are bluish with the white back; calling to  support center both pc and camera maker hasn't been the much help(^^;) 

(about me; Valentine design version )


  1. Hello Miyako, your dishes look yummy. I am not sure if I have ever tried this radish. But you soup does look yummy. thanks for sharing. Have a happy day, Eileen!

  2. Those look yummy, my dear friend Miyako! I like to eat radish, too, and we usually eat it in salads. I will have to try it in soup sometime as I'm sure it would be delicious. You are right in that it is a very healthy vegetable.

    Your meals always look so very good- you are a terrific cook, my friend!

  3. Hi dear Miyako. First of all, I LOVE the valentines look of your blog. Very pretty, and you've done an excellent job with it! Those meals certainly look delicious, and VERY healthy. We eat radish in salads, raw, but they are tiny little things with pink on the outside. Perhaps this is a different sort of radish?! Isn't it funny, how men have certain jobs that is always left to them? Always a pleasure to come over and see you, and I hope you and hubby are keeping well. Hugs & Love from your friend in the West xx

  4. we have types of radishes that we like to eat raw. some are mild. some are 'hot'. then there is horseradish which is quite spicy and is used in sauces. i don't think many folks in the US cook radishes.

  5. European horseradish tastes differently, but still enjoy the japanese one! Nice soup, would love to try it one day!

  6. Dear Miyako,
    I'm not sure if I've ever had radishes cooked but I have had several different types raw. They are wonderful in salads and now that I've seen the ways you have prepared them I will try them cooked and see if I like them that way as well. I've been meaning to say how much I like the Valentines look you have on your blog. It's very pretty. Warm hugs and love from your bs

  7. Hi Miyako. I love the Valentine look of your blog too.

    I also love radish but I have never seen a radish like this one. I have only seen and eaten the small round red ones.

    Your dishes look so very yummy. I would love to try all of them!

    I hope you are having a lovely day and that your week will be just wonderful!

    ♥ Big hugs! ♥

  8. It all looks delicious Miyako!

    You have been busy!

    Have a great week my friend.

  9. I haven't seen that type of radish. Ours are small, reddish on the outside and white in the middle. We usually eat them raw and in salads. Your meal looks delicious.

  10. Hello Miyako.
    I love radish, though in England they're a lot smaller. We tend to have them in salads. They remind me of summer. When I think of Japanese radish I remember the Radish God in Spirited Away. xxx

  11. Your soup looks delicious, Miyako. Nice that hubby helps with grating the radish. I've only tasted the little red ones we see all the time here, raw, in salads. I will check our Asian supermarkets for daikon. Glad you are feeling better. ((hugs)) xo

  12. Hello sweet Miyako,
    I always love your food pictures. They look like I should step in and taste everything.
    This looks delicious and I do not see any off color in the photos.
    We have radish here,big white like that, I may have to try cooking some!
    Love and hugs

    OMG tofu.... i miss tofu alot. I love any dishes with tofu.

    thanks for sharing the Japanese flavor.

  16. Hello Miyako. I'm sure I must have tasted a radish dish while I was in Japan, but don't remember. We tried so many new dishes, both Japanese and Chinese, some of them more memorable than others. In fact when we came home my sister and I had a hard time adjusting again to eating the less healthy western food we normally ate.
    Have a lovely week.


  17. Miyako sama,
