Braised Radishes with Dill Recipe Ingredients:
Radishes have a sulfurous mustard oil in them that stimulates the circulation system as well as the liver and kidneys to help with a detox. They are very good for the skin because of their high sulfur, silicon, and vitamin C content. A good source of fiber they taste delicious as braised radishes with dill.
Coconut oil is actually very good for us and I use it to fry with and in this braised radishes with dill recipe. In tropical climates like Polynesia, Sri Lanka, and the Yucatan where they have a diet high in coconut oil, the people are healthier, have less heart disease, cancer, and colon problems than unsaturated fat eaters. It is now accepted that there is good cholesterol and there are good saturated fats. Learn the 12 benefits of Coconut Oil, this newly declared Amazing SuperFood.
To get the most health benefits from Garlic, let it sit for a minimum of 5 minutes, after cutting and before eating or cooking. Waiting for 5 – 10 minutes allows the health-promoting allicin to form. When you let it sit, allicin is formed and this is worth the wait. Add some garlic to your soups, stews, and salad dressing recipes to lower high cholesterol. Sometimes it is easier to use some Organic Freeze Dried Garlic so no chopping and peeling and it can be quickly added to this braised radishes with dill recipe.
Unregulated chemicals in tap water are not good for us! Most of us already know that our tap water is filled with unregulated chemicals! And many of us always filter it before drinking it or using it for cooking as I do in this braised radishes with dill recipe. I have for decades.
Here is the water filter I am using and am very happy with it. The only way to remove fluoride is to use a reverse osmosis system and some are better than others. When I did my research this is the one I decided on.
APEC Water System, 5-Stage Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filter System
I always use Pink Himalayan Salt which is a salt that is actually healthy for you!
Black Pepper adds a little extra flavor to this braised radishes with dill recipe.
I like both of these black peppers: Trader Joe’s Black Pepper Peppercorns with Grinder or Simply Organic Pepper, Black Medium Grind Certified Organic. The pepper adds a bit of heat to these quick pickles. You can pepper according to your taste.
