Dia’s Upside Down Spicy Radish & Bean Pie (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

use-2-lilUpside down spicy radish and bean pie? Am I off my rocker? Probably so, but I have spent at least a week trying to work out something completely original to do with radishes! Most people just assume you can’t cook them, but they’re wrong! Sauteed, grilled or baked, radishes taste great.
