By Veronica LePinske. It's easy to slip back into old habits. Grabbing something quick and greasy for lunch is a very easy habit to fall into, but there are easy and cheap alternatives, and with just a few minutes in the morning you could enjoy something so much better for lunch. Did you know that the French equivalent to PB&J is radishes swirled in butter and sprinkled with sea salt with slices of baguette? Delicious, satisfying, and so much better than a greasy burger, this easy and elegant lunch is cheap and easy to make and provides all the energy you'll need to make it through a busy afternoon without the guilt of a greasy sandwich and the drowsy feeling that follows.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of radishes
  • fleu de sel (sea salt)
  • 1/2 stick of fresh butter (unsalted and softened)
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley and fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of dried herbs de provence
  • 1 baguette, sliced
  • freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

  1. Start by trimming your radishes. Cut off the leafy greens and trim the tip and root ends. Slice the radishes very thinly into discs (almost translucent-thin). Warm up a baguette in the oven on 325 degrees F for 15-20 mins. Cool the bread slightly and slice the bread in 12 slices. Spread a thin layer of butter on the bread slices and top with a few thinly sliced radish disc and top with parsley. Top with a pinch of fleur de sel and cracked pepper.
