Meals in Minutes: Braised Radishes

Braised Radishes
Serves 6


1 tablespoon butter
2 large shallots, finely sliced
1 pounds radishes, about 2 bunches, tops trimmed and radishes sliced in half
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
½ cup vegetable broth
½ cup finely chopped Italian parsley
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


Melt the butter over medium-high heat in a wide skillet. Place radishes cut side down in the pan and cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes or until bottoms begin to brown.
Add the shallots and cook, stirring, for another minute.
Add the balsamic vinegar and the broth. The liquid should just come up around the sides of the radishes. Cover, lower heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the radishes are tender.
Remove the lid and continue to simmer for 3-4 minutes or until the liquid has reduced into a syrupy sauce. Add the parsley and stir to wilt. Season with pepper and serve.
