Radishes with Fromager d'Affinois

Pin It


I'm so excited! My radishes are ready! This year I planted French breakfast radishes (Raphanus sativus) mid January. We had cool wet days, perfect weather for radishes in Texas.


The squirrels have had a field day this year. They dug up half my garden which I planted with spinach, kale, beets, potatoes and various types of lettuce. They even rearranged my spring bulbs. There's a daffodil in the middle of my parsley!

crackers or bread
*Fromager d' Affinois or brie
radishes, sliced
green onions, sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Spread the cheese on the bread or crackers. Top with a layer of sliced radishes. Sprinkle with sliced green onion and dust with salt and pepper, to taste.


*Fromager d'Affinois is a very creamy, brie-like cheese with a soft delicate tasting rind.

So jealous! We won't be plantng our cold weather spring crops until April....your radishes are beautiful, have you ever tried the easter egg radish variety; they come in the prettiest colors!

Love this simple recipe, can't wait to try it once my radishes are ready!

Yes, I do have the easter egg variety! I planted a few rows yesterday.

Most of my planting is done at the beginning of the year when there's rain (with a second planting early fall). By June you may as well forget it unless you are willing to deal with plus 100°F and drought.

I try my best to use as little water as possible. Last year was so hot we broke several records, and I lost my lawn. At the moment I'm looking into drought tolerant native grasses which only require about a 1/4 inch or so of water per month.

What beautiful little radishes. It's such a simple, elegant meal. I like my radishes on baguette with butter. I've never had a sandwich with radishes and cheese. I'll have to try it.
