Radish Toasts with Basil Butter


  • 2 slices Iggy's Pain De Mie Bread
  • 1 tbl unsalted butter, softened
  • 10 basil leaves
  • A few grinds of black pepper
  • 2 medium or one large radish, thinly sliced (if using daikon or other large radish, you will likely not need the whole thing)
  • sea salt, to taste


1. Lightly toast the slices of bread and let cool.

2. Roughly chop the basil leaves. With a mortar and pestle, pound the butter, leaves and pepper together until well mixed. Alternatively mash butter, leaves and pepper together with the back of a sturdy spoon.

3. Smear each slice of toast with 1/2 tbsp of herbed butter. Arrange radish slices on top and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!
