Aufschläge 10 One Serving: 1/10 of a 10 serving recipe


  • 1 (2 Pfund) Daikon-Rettich, geschält
  • tsp Meersalz und mehr
  • 3 Esslöffel Butter, geteilt, plus mehr zum Einfetten der Alufolie
  • Tassen Schlagsahne
  • 3/4 tsp Pfeffer, plus mehr nach Bedarf
  • 1 tsp getrockneter Thymian
  • 1 tsp Zwiebelpulver
  • 1/2 tsp Knoblauchpulver
  • 1 Tasse (3 Unzen) geriebener scharfer Cheddar-Käse
  • 1 Tasse (3 oz) geriebener Gruyère-Käse
  • 1/4 Tasse Parmesan Käse
+ Rezept zur Einkaufsliste hinzufügen


  • Füllen Sie einen großen Topf zu drei Vierteln mit Wasser und bringen Sie ihn dann bei starker Hitze zum Kochen.
  • Den Daikon-Rettich quer in 2 oder 3 Stücke schneiden. Schneiden Sie den Daikon mit einer Mandoline oder einem sehr scharfen Messer in dünne -Zoll-Scheiben.
  • 1 Esslöffel Salz in das kochende Wasser geben. Fügen Sie die in Scheiben geschnittenen Daikon hinzu und kochen Sie, bis sie zart sind, aber noch ihre Form behalten, etwa 10 Minuten. Lassen Sie die Daikon in ein großes Sieb in der Spüle abtropfen und spülen Sie sie dann vorsichtig mit kaltem Wasser ab. Nach dem Abtropfen die Scheiben mit sauberen Küchen- oder Papiertüchern trocken tupfen.
  • Den Backofen auf 175 °C (350 °F) vorheizen. Stellen Sie einen Rost in das obere Drittel des Ofens. Verwenden Sie ein Drittel der Butter, um eine 8 x 10 Zoll Auflaufform einzufetten. Bestreichen Sie eine Seite der Folie, die groß genug ist, um die Auflaufform mit etwas Butter zu bedecken.
  • In einem kleinen Topf bei mittlerer Hitze Sahne, Salz, Pfeffer, Thymian, Zwiebelpulver und Knoblauchpulver erhitzen, bis sie an den Rändern köcheln. Reduzieren Sie die Hitze auf niedrig und köcheln Sie, bis sich die Flüssigkeit um etwa ein Drittel reduziert hat, 6 bis 8 Minuten. Den Herd ausschalten, die restliche Butter einrühren und beiseite stellen.
  • In einer kleinen Schüssel die geriebenen Käse mischen. In die vorbereitete Auflaufform ein Drittel der Daikonscheiben leicht überlappend schichten. Ein Drittel des Käses darüberstreuen. Wiederholen Sie dies, bis Sie drei Schichten Daikon-Scheiben haben. Restlichen Käse darüberstreuen. Die reduzierte Sahnemischung über die Schichten gießen. Das Gratin mit vorbereiteter Alufolie abdecken und backen, bis der Käse hellgoldbraun ist und die Flüssigkeit an den Rändern sprudelt, ca. 45 Minuten. Herausnehmen, Folie aufbewahren, Gratin mit Parmesan bestreuen und offen weitere 15 Minuten backen. Backofen auf Grillen stellen, dann kurz grillen, bis die Gratinkruste tief goldbraun ist und sprudelt, 1 bis 2 Minuten.
  • Das Gratin aus dem Ofen nehmen und mit der beiseite gelegten Folie abdecken. 10 Minuten stehen lassen und fest werden lassen. Aufschlag.

    Wow, this tastes as good as it looks! The texture and neutral flavor of the cooked daikon mimics potato perfectly. So satisfying!

    Had a little trouble finding Daikon Radishes but it was worth the effort. Delicious! I’ll definitely make it again.

    This might be favorite new side dish. I think I could make this for potluck and get folx to eat daikon too – you’d never know!!

    Most definitely one of my new “go to’s,” delicious! So much like scallop potatoes that you’d barely tel the difference.

    Loved it so much that it also makes my “Would serve to guests” top 10 list!!!

    Vielen Dank!

    The daikon preparation is genius. That alone is worth 5 stars. From there, anyone should be able to find their own way as if using a normal recipe.

    But then, a few things go terribly wrong: (1) Too much butter is called for… there’s just no purpose to so much in the pan … or the foil. The butter added to the cream, similarly, doesn’t really seem to add much dimensionality and it easily pools up. (2) Way, way, way too much salt is called for… too much in the boiling water, too much in the gratin cream mixture. I used only 1 tsp instead of the 1.5 directed and I couldn’t stand how salty the resulting preparation was. Next time, I’m following a traditional recipe or just using my own cooking skills to make a determination on salt. For that matter, salt would be best added in pinches, sprinkled at each layer step, along with pepper, with far less salt in the actual cream sauce. (3) Thyme powder is nice, fresh thyme is better. (4) One 2 lb daikon is a little light when laid into a traditional 8 x 12 pan. I’d have opted for a smaller pan or more daikon and gratin. (5) Similarly, the amounts of cheese used are slightly light, at least an extra half ounce each (cheddar and gruyere) would be better… and… back to the issue with the salt: adding the salty parmesan on top only increases the overall saltiness of this. I’d skip parmesan and consider buttered keto bread crumbs or use less parmesan and, again, reduce the overall salt in the actual dish.

    Those are large and significant quibbles, but I can’t deny the overall intent and manner of execution are exceptional. So, I’m compromising and giving it 3 stars. Would not be hard for it to score 5+ though.

    • Appreciate all the feedback, Chris. Salt is such a personal thing and we agree that it’s better to start out lighter and add more as you go.

    This is an amazing recipe. The only change that I did was to add a smidgen of freshly grated nutmeg to the sauce. Also this is a great make-ahead dish I prepared it and assembled it ahead of time with the exception of the two cheese toppings. The next day I took it out of the fridge 2 hours before I was going to bake it off and just before baking I added the cheese and then the last 10 minutes I sprinkled on the parmesan. At that point I put my oven up to 500° and put it in the rack and it Browns perfectly without having to put it under the broiler I didn’t want to risk cracking my beautiful French stoneware casserole dish.

    Can one replace the Daikon radish with the China Rose radish (Raphanus Sativus)? I cannot seem to find Daikon radishes or the seeds to grow them here in South Africa. Thank you.

    • Hi Sally – we are not as familiar with China Rose radish here in the U.S. but it looks like the kind of radish that could work. Give it try!

    This is amazing comfort food that I am surely going to use this holiday season. I gave it four stars because I had to leave one star off even though the dish itself is perfect. The use of aluminum foil in direct contact with food is toxic and create several health issues. It’s bad enough that the WHO puts out advisories against using aluminum foil in contact with food. Chefs and food industry professionals tend not to understand the difference between restaurant quality products like the aluminum foil or cling wrap that they use are different quality from what is available to the average home cook on their grocery store shelves. If you’re home cooking buying your aluminum foil and plastic wrap from the grocery store then don’t cook with either product. The aluminum foil in grocery store foil is full of heavy metals that Leach into your food and the plastic wrap that you get at the grocery store is not safe for using in water bath cooking, etc.

    Well worth the effort. Didn’t taste the radish flavor at all. I soaked them and dried them as suggested. I subbed Swiss for gruyere. A definite winner!!

    This dish was amazing! Yes I froze some as I live alone. I’m used to freezing scalloped potatoes and these are sturdier. I really missed scalloped potatoes so my thanks for posting.

    I NEVER write reviews, but I have to because this recipe is OUTSTANDING. My husband has not appreciated any of my keto-version recipes up until now, but after he tasted this au gratin he wanted only that for dinner, lol.

    BRILLIANT, and worth the labor it took to make! Thank you, and I’ll be trying more of your recipes. Thanks to the Keto Twins for sharing this recipe on their channel, otherwise I may have never found it!

    SPECTACULAR!. Absolutely delicious, used sour cream, single cream, andcheddar cheese. Next time, I need to remember to remove as much water as possible from the daikon before putting it in the oven. pArt from that AMAZING!

    • You would never know it’s not real potatoes, right?! Did you replace some of the heavy cream with sour cream? Not a bad idea.

    DROP THE FREAKEN MIC!!! These are AMAZING!!! I really could not tell these were not potatos. Keto comfort food at its best. I used layers of thinly sliced onion instead of onion powder.

    I made this for my whole family and it was a hit! Everyone said they couldn’t tell it wasn’t potatoes. Thank you. 🙂

    Both my wife and I loved it! Tasted as good as any potato au gratin or scalloped potato recipe that we’ve had. We will make it again.
