Sometimes a little kielbasa and potatoes just hit the spot. Potatoes are the key word here. I loved potatoes so much when I was a kid that my friend Kassie said she was going to buy me a 5 gallon bucket of mashed potatoes and gravy for my birthday. True story! I really wish it wasn’t! LOL! So, maybe my love for potatoes was a little too strong. Needless to say, when I started eating keto, potatoes and I had to break up, and it was hard.
I started looking around for a potato substitute, and I stumbled upon the daikon radish. The last time I ate a radish it was the early 90s. My grandparents grew them in the garden, and one bite was enough to tell me that I didn’t like them. So when I heard that radishes, and daikons in particular, are a good potato substitute, I shook my head in disbelief. No way! I am not sure if it was more curiosity or desperation that sent me down to the grocery to pick up these white, carrot like radishes, but either way I purchased a few. I have used them in several recipes now, and I think they are indeed a fabulous potato substitute. They take very well to the other flavors in the dish.
This dish is one that my mom made all the time when I was a kid. I always enjoyed it, and actually had kielbasa, potatoes and sauerkraut as the meal for my graduation party. The daikon radish works perfectly to make this dish low carb, and has all the same great flavors I remember! This low carb polish supper sure hit the spot! Did you make this recipe?
