Herb Roasted Radishes

I’ve never liked radishes. Ever. They always seemed bitter and intent on ruining a perfectly good salad. Blech!

But the Mr likes them so I’ve learned to keep them around the house fairly often as they’re a great snack for him. However, one week he seemed to have forgotten them and so I found a lovely limp couple of bunches languishing in the fridge. Not wanting to waste them, I decided to throw them in the oven to see if they could be salvaged. I was even brave enough to taste one – and, lo! It turns out that roasted radishes mellow out beautifully when roasted and actually become rather sweet. While still keeping a little crunch. Now I’ve made them a few times since then to double check that the mellowing out wasn’t just because my first batch were – shall we say – a little past their prime. But, nope! Roasting relaxes radishes. Fact!

This isn’t much of a recipe and more like a method – just take whatever radishes you have around, then toss them in a little oil and spices for 10 – 15 minutes at 450F. As long as you lay them out in a single layer on a baking tray, your roasted radishes will come out perfectly. You could probably fit 4 or 5 bunches on a single tray, even sliced into quarters like I’ve done here. So even if you are a radish hater, give these a try! I tend to make them like a party snack here and there, but they’d probably be great as a little side dish, too. Hmm, must investigate!
