Daikon Cakes

So I made these for a friend of mine and she asked “What kind of meat is in these?” I told her there was none and she says “SHUT UP, NO WAY.” Um, yes way. Supposedly a radish hater, she sends me a text a few days later saying “All I need in my life is some radish cakes.”
So all radish haters unite because you are about to turn a corner in your world of food love.
  • 2 Daikons
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • Seasoning (salt, pepper, garlic…and chili powder if you have it)
  • Butter for frying
  1. Shred daikons and squeeze out excess liquid.
  2. Beat egg and mix with shredded daikon.
  3. Add breadcrumbs and stir together.
  4. Use a heavy hand with seasonings.
  5. Make into patties and fry in a pan coated with butter. (Everything is better in butter).
I melt cheese on the top of them but that’s just how I roll. Michelle Murillo (credit for the picture belongs to her) says you must 1. Grow chives in your front yard. 2. Fry them in hot oil. 3. Pat them dry. 4. Chop them up and add to sour cream to make a wickedly wonderful condiment. Or…you could be lazy like me and serve them with whatever condiment needs to be finished up and out of the refrigerator. ;-)
Cheers and Happy Eats!



  2. haha. Just make sure to get ALL the liquid out, well as much as you can, from the daikons, and then you can make them without the bread crumbs. So there you go, gluten hater.
