Tartines aux Radis - Radish Toasts

Each season, there is a variety of fruits and vegetables that I am looking forward to eating. For spring, radish is one of them. I love their pinky colour and the ‘crunch crunch’ they make when I bite into them. Most times I just eat them on their own or with a knob of salted butter, but sometimes I like something a bit fancier. We now have a proper herb garden on our balcony and I thought that chives would mix very well with radish. The other day, I had also made my own bread, and the thought came into my head: ‘let’s make tartines!’ – you know, just a piece of bread with a nice topping. And so, that’s what we had, radish toasts for a light spring dinner!

Radish Toasts – Serves 2

  • 4 slices of wholemeal or granary bread
  • 6 tbsp natural yoghurt
  • 1 spring onion
  • 8 radishes
  • A bunch of chives

  1. Chop finely the spring onion. In a bowl, mix it with the natural yoghurt, salt and pepper.
  2. Wash the radishes, cut out the green leaves and slice the radishes finely.
  3. Spread a good layer of the yoghurt and spring onion on the bread slices. Add the radish slices. Top with a few sprigs of chives and a little more black pepper. Serve with a green salad.
