Daikon may be a new veggie for you. It is technically a radish but has an extremely mild flavor. If you have tried zucchini noodles and you were a bit disappointed by how wet the zucchini made the sauce, try daikon instead! It holds up great—even to the thickest, meatiest spaghetti sauce.

1 large daikon radish (about 2 pounds)

1 cup chicken or beef bone broth, homemade (here) or store-bought


Spiral slicer

  1. Peel the daikon and cut off the ends. Using a spiral slicer, swirl it into long, thin noodlelike shapes.
  2. Place the noodles and broth in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cover and steam for 5 to 8 minutes, until the daikon is soft. Remove from the heat and drain the noodles. Serve with your favorite keto sauce or top with butter or coconut oil and a sprinkle of salt and serve as a side dish. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
