I love radish shoots. Wish they were more easily available around here.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

I love peppery radish sprouts too. In fact, they're really the only sprouts I particularly care for at all. And I agree about availability - only come across them once in awhile in higher-end supermarkets like Harris Teeter & Whole Foods.

mollyanne, it looks to me like there's a mix of sprouts on top of the beets. i see at least three kinds, if you look at the thickness and colour of the stems. i see pea shoots, mung bean sprouts, and possibly radish or beet shoots.

...wait...i'm taking notes...you all are good at this...snow pea sprouts (or shoots?), micro-greens, mung bean sprouts, radish and beet shoots, pea shoots, baby frisee, pre-baby-stage mesculun mix...all sound like awesome delicacies...and to think I always thought alfalfa sprouts were the alpha and omega

Hm, my memory is shot, but I do remember Emeril making something just like that once, with beets and cheese, but cannot remember the name.
You are what you eat.
