You want me to eat what? blogathon entry #13

What have you grown in your garden that as a child you would have never eaten? And what did you make with it? ~mysterylady36

Radishes yucky radishes.

Of course I shredded them up and topped a salad with them, but I also made;

Hoisin Chicken and Radish Stir Fry

1 ½ tsp. corn starch
2 tbl vegetable oil
4 oz. fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into ½ inch pieces
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into ½ inch strips
1 tbl grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 ½ cups trimmed, quartered radishes
4 cups romaine lettuce cut into ½ inch strips
2 cups steamed rice

Combine cornstarch with 3/4 cup water and set aside.

In a large skillet heat oil until hot, add green beans, stirring to coat with oil. Add a tablespoons of water, cover and cook until nearly crisp-tender, 3 minutes, stirring once. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is nearly cooked, 3 minutes. Add ginger, cook, stirring occasionally , 1 minute. Add hoisin sauce, bouillon cube and reserved corn starch mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils, 1 minute. Add radishes and return to a boil. Stir constantly until mixture thickens, 1 minute. Place lettuce in a large serving bowl. Spoon chicken mixture over lettuce and toss to coat. Serve over rice.
