How to Make Creamy Riced Potatoes


  • 1 cup vegetable stock or water
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 pounds radishes with their greens, radishes quartered and greens reserved (see Note)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 ounce sorrel leaves, stemmed and thickly sliced (1 packed cup)

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large skillet, bring the vegetable stock and butter to a boil over moderate heat. Add the radishes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they are crisp-tender and the liquid has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a shallow bowl. Scatter the sorrel over the top and serve.


Save the radish greens for the Potato, Leek and Radish Green Vichyssoise.
