Ginisang Labanos (Sauteed White Radish)

You can make labanos or white raddish the star of your menu. Aside from pickled labanos which I love as my korean side dish. There are more ways you can cook this raddish with.
You can simply use a medium hole shredder to easily shred it and saute with any meat you have. On budget days, you can saute it with sardines, leftover meat like chicken, ground beef, liver, mini dried shrimp and saute it with lots of tomatoes. Yummy!
