Roasted radishes just might be your family's new favorite side dish. Nuttier, sweeter, and with just a hint of spice.
Roasted Radishes. Huh? Aren’t radishes supposed to be the crunchy little colorful things in salads? Or the little red balls on the veggie tray that no one eats? I like radishes. I don’t love them. I love thin slices or little pieces, in salads mostly or on sandwiches, but I wouldn’t pick up a whole radish and snack on it plain. My husband? If there are radishes on a salad, there is probably a small red and white pile on the side of his plate when he’s finished eating the salad. He’s not a huge fan. (Though I'm wondering if he might give them a shot in Emily's Feta Cheese Dip Recipe...)
Buuuuuuut it turns out he is! Roasted vegetables for the win. As always. Roasting vegetables is magical. The process brings out so much flavor and sweetness and ohmygoodness yumminess. If you’re boiling your vegetables, no offense… but you’re doing it wrong. Crank up that oven and ROAST.
You guys. Let’s talk for a minute. I’ve been seeing recipes for roasted radishes floating around for quite some time now and I’ve always wanted to try them. Put roasted radishes on your recipe bucket list. Do it! Do it now! I can't begin to explain the sweetness, the nuttiness that comes out of these little veggies.
These radishes stay true to their spicy selves, but are sweetened up with the roasting process as well as a touch of honey. Lemon juice and olive oil deepen the flavor and turn these into vegetable candy. I’m so glad I finally tried roasting radishes. It certainly won’t be the last time.
Still not convinced? Ease your way in to roasting vegetables with this roasted broccoli recipe, roasted carrots, or my absolute favorite, roasted mushrooms. Try adding them to a salad, like a fall version of this Roasted Vegetable Summer Quinoa Salad Recipe.
