Simmered Daikon with Miso and Sesame


Slow cooking daikon radish renders it tender and slightly sweet. It lends itself well to strong flavours to complement its subtle taste. My favourite is sweet white miso and sesame.


  • 1 daikon radish
  • Sweet white miso
  • 2-3 tsp sesame seeds        


  • Peel the daikon and cut into 2cm thick slices
  • Lightly score the surface with a criss-cross pattern; this helps the daikon cook quicker
  • Put in a pan with plenty of water and cook until soft
  • Place a piece for each person in a small bowl, spread a thin layer of miso on top (or leave in a round as in the photo)
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds
