Garlic and Pepper Daikon Rice Recipe

Last week in my blog I told you all about the importance of using the skin of the daikon to make sure you maximise your Vitamin C intake.

So today, I wanted to give you a recipe to do just that, Garlic and Pepper Daikon Rice!

Garlic and pepper daikon rice

This recipe is just perfect for this time of year because it uses seasonal veggies (i.e. daikon) and also is warm and nourishing. It is also the perfect way to introduce someone or a child to daikon, because the vegetable is secretly hidden in the rice! So enjoy!



  • 2 cup medium grain rice
  • 2.5 cup water 
  • 150g daikon, diced 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 
  • 2 tsp stock powder or 1 cube stock 
  • 1 tsp sea salt 
  • 1TBSP olive oil


  1. Wash the rice.
  2. Heat the garlic and oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add Daikon and salt.
  3. Cook and stir over until slightly soft then stir in rice and stock powder thoroughly to coat the rice then add the water.
  4. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 10 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
  5. Top with chopped parsley or Daikon leaves and generous amount of freshly ground black pepper. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
