Daikon is a type of white radish with a slightly sweet, mild flavor and crisp, white flesh. It is often used in Asian cuisine, such as in this recipe for the quick beef stew.

Daikon, also called white radish, is a root vegetable that is used in Asian cuisine. It’s best when eaten raw, but you can also cook it. Daikon is a good source of vitamin C and has some amount of potassium, calcium, vitamin A and magnesium. It’s also a good source of folic acid, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. It contains several other vitamins and trace elements. It’s tasty and has a mild flavor. That’s why it’s so popular in Japan, Korea, China, and Taiwan. It’s also known as “white radish” and is most often eaten as part of a Korean meal called “bibimbap”.

Daikon is a food that is likely to be new to most people and has only recently become more readily available in most Asian markets, both in the frozen food section and in fresh form. Daikon is a white, knobbly root that looks like a turnip and tastes something like a cross between a cucumber and a radish.
