Pickled Daikon Radish Greens Furikake, 0.7 oz
Freshly harvested daikon radish greens and salt are the only ingredients in Kenchanzuke’s Pickled Daikon Radish Greens Furikake. It’s a Japanese-style savory sprinkle, which features a robust flavor and aroma with an intense umami derived from fermentation. Kenchanzuke, tsukemono (Japanese-style pickles) specialty maker in the Izumo region of Shimane Prefecture, knows that fresh, quality vegetables have the power to deliver great flavors even after fermentation, without needing any additives. Kenchanzuke’s lactic acid fermentation naturally boosts the umami, flavor, and aroma of the daikon radish greens. These features are even further enhanced by the company’s special methods when processing the pickled greens into the furikake’s dried flakes. Because of its robust flavor, intense aroma, and crunchy texture, Pickled Daikon Radish Greens Furikake has more versatility than traditional furikake, which is usually enjoyed by sprinkling over cooked rice. You can also use Pickled Daikon Radish Greens Furikake as a seasoning for fried rice, pilaf, pasta, and stir-fried dishes. Daikon radish greens are a rich source of nutrition including beta carotene, vitamin C, and calcium, and you can enjoy these same benefits from the furikake as well.
Traditionally, furikake (Japanese-style savory sprinkles) is enjoyed sprinkled on cooked rice or dusted over onigiri rice balls. Pickled Daikon Radish Greens Furikake adds a great kick to cooked rice when used in the traditional way, however, its robust flavor, intense aroma, and crunchy texture make it more versatile! You can season fried rice and stir-fried dishes with it, as well as mixing it into pilaf, tempura batter, and pasta sauce. You can, of course, mix it into dressings and dipping sauces. This umami-rich furikake is great with olive oil, garlic, and cheese, so you can exploit its exquisite tastes with Italian or Spanish dishes like carpaccio, peperoncino pasta, pizza, ajillo, and paella.
