Keto Black Seed Red Radishes. Who’d a thunk something so simple to make could taste so good. This was originally a dish made with potatoes and probably came from India. Please don’t confuse black seeds with black sesame seeds because there is a world of difference and as you might imagine, with a little ginger and turmeric thrown in, tastes a bit like curry, (not really) but with no coconut milk.
In most health discussions regarding black seeds (Nigella Sativa) you will see it being used as an oil but for our purposes we are using the whole seeds. Besides being healthy, their taste is incredible. They are used all over the Middle East and Africa and I have to say I am in love with the taste and sprinkle them prodigiously on all kinds of dishes. Notice how different they look from black sesame seeds, they are smaller, and have rather sharp, pointed angles. Here are a couple of recipe pics showing how I use them. The first is an African Peanut Soup and the second is a Keto Lemon Tahini Mint Salad Dressing. Keto black seed red radishes for a completely different and fabulously tasting vegetable side dish.

- Be careful using turmeric as it stains EVERTHING in its path. Not only your food but your hands and yes, sadly your clothes. You cannot get it out and I don’t care what anyone says. That's my story and...I'm sticking to it.
- Yes, and you can mix the sour cream into the radishes too. I didn't do it because I wanted you to see the beautiful colors before covering them.
