Radish Super Mario Mushroom
Things I thought I never would have thought would have appeared on my blog in a million years #3054.
If you stalk me on Instagram or Twitter, you will be aware I hosted a retro party over the weekend, to celebrate Raz, Lky and my birthdays. With our birthdays a few days apart we decided to get together and have a joint party with a few of our fellow food bloggers. I decided to just invite a whole bunch of people, and only one couple said no… which left me with 19 people in my new house! If you want to check out what we got up to, follow the hashtag #retroparty on instgram. We had a photobooth, played Twister, listened to songs way before our time, and enjoyed food and beverages of the “retro” era.
One of the dishes I made was a French Onion Dip platter. It had the usual suspects; carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, capsicum sticks, cherry tomatoes, and these cute little radish mushrooms. I got the idea off google images as I wanted to know how to cut my radishes retro-ish. This came up and I knew I had to, but instead of doing it the way they did, I used my skills to do it the way I had been taught to make potato mushrooms from the recent BBQ Red Heads Festival masterclass. On another note, it was the first time ever I had to buy French Onion soup mix, and I felt so dirty standing in front of all the packaged sauce mixes, I felt like I was having an affair and didn’t want anyone to see me there 😛 bahaha!
So you too can impress your friends with your next dip platter, salad or whatever you wish to use them on. I can’t guarantee it will make you double in size and strength, allow you to smash through bricks or take and extra hit from enemies, but I tell you they will impress anyone!
