Daikon radish in a sweet miso sauce is warm and tender with the perfect balance of sweet and savoury tastes. Serve it with warm rice and other Japanese style dishes like Fish in Vinegar Sauce or Bento Chicken. It is suitable for vegans. Radish is low in calories but high in nutrition including Vitamin C, copper, folate, and fiber. Miso, from fermented soybean, is a helpful ingredient for menopausal symptoms and gut health.
