More About Daikon or Mooli:

Daikon is the Japanese name for this mild tasting large white radish, which literally means “large root”. The daikon in this photo was organically grown in Eastern New York State, and is over a foot long. The supermarket varieties are usually scrubbed clean, and are whiter. Wikipedia says, “In the UK and continental Asia it is most commonly known as mooli.” It is great to eat raw in salads, or to munch on for a snack or for a dip. One of the nice things about daikons is that they can be stir-fried with other vegetables and they still retain their crispness much like water chestnuts.

We could not find detailed nutritional information on daikons, but did find that a 30 gram serving of daikon has 1 gram of protein and 1 gram of unsaturated fat for a total of 15 calories. They are also relatively high in vitamin C with the 30 gram (1 ounce) serving providing 15% of our daily need.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal. After that they then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection. This way we can experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy. It’s a great way to live and our foods provide almost all of our vitamins.
