Radishes on Buttered Baguette

HEADERI recently moved to Vancouver from Saskatoon with my family. I was excited about the move, especially the weather – not too hot in the summer, not too cold in the winter. But, wouldn’t you know it, we are in the midst of a heat wave in Vancouver, and air conditioning isn’t a common thing in the condos or apartments here. Turning on the oven is the last thing I want to do in this weather. Thankfully, since Vancouver has amazing farmers’ markets and grocery stores, delicious, satisfying eats are easily made without overheating.

This morning at the market I grabbed some local radishes, peashoots and butter. I picked up a baguette on my way home and I was set. So ridiculously simple and oh, so delicious.


Radishes on Buttered Baguette

– a bunch or two of radishes, thinly sliced
– pea shoots or any micro greens
– baguette
– chilled salted butter
– fleur del sel and freshly ground pepper

The butter is key in this recipe. You want to thinly slice the butter, almost like it’s a cheese. The creaminess works so well with the peppery taste of the radishes. Smear a generous amount of butter on a slice of baguette, top with thinly sliced radishes, sprinkle with fleur de sel and pepper and garnish with pea shoots.


Sometimes the simplest things are best. Enjoy.
