AIP Daikon Hash browns

While grocery shopping we decided to buy a parsnip. It was quite humongous actually and I planned to make some whipped parsnips with it. So I was chopping it up and I had some water that was boiling and I was almost ready but I decided to nibble a little piece. Hmmm. That is weird! I didn't know that parsnips taste just like RADISH!!! Well, there goes my plan for whipped parsnips! Google says that the root is actually called a daikon! Oops! What on earth shall we do?! Once it was mixed with some flour and made into a dough, we smooshed it and threw it (more like placed it carefully) into a pan. When they were done we tried a little shnibble of it and OH MY GOODNESS! IT IS SO GOOD! I could hardly believe how tasty it was! Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside! It was perfect! The radish flavor nearly vanished but the small hint of it worked perfectly with the onions and ginger! Hmmmm!

They may not look fantastic but they are quite deceiving!
