Don't throw away your radish greens! Use them (or in a pinch, spinach) to make this easy, cheesey dip. Best of all, you can prep it the day before!


  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped radishes

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 1/4 cups coarsely chopped radish greens

  • 125 g cream cheese, cubed and softened

  • 3/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, divided

  • 1/4 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 400F. 

  • Melt butter in a medium frying pan over medium. Add radishes, onion and garlic. Cook until softened, 4 to 6 min. Add radish greens, stirring until wilted, 2 to 3 min. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  • Stir in cream cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan, sour cream and pepper. Scrape into a small (2 1/2-cup) oven-safe baking dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan.

  • Bake until dip starts to bubble around sides of dish, 10 to 12 min. Remove and let cool slightly before serving with halved radishes, veggies or crackers.
