Sautéed Radish Greens with Split Chickpeas

Sautéed Radish Greens with Split Chickpeas

Do you use the leaves of radish?

I did not until recently. In fact, I did not know they were edible until I saw a fellow blogger use them.

Radish leaves are very much edible and nutritious. They are rich in magnesium and vitamin C and K, so they are good to include in our diet. If you are someone like me that never used radish greens, this is an easy and tasty side dish to start with.

This recipe is simple and takes 15 minutes to prepare, provided you have the soaked chickpeas ready. Simply temper mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chilies, garlic, and a pinch of hing in cooking oil. Then add soaked and drained split chickpeas and saute them with cleaned and chopped radish greens until they are cooked. Season with salt and serve with your meal.
