Lately I’ve been getting a lot of radishes in my CSA basket. I was simply washing, slicing and eating them in salads, but that got old pretty quickly! So I decided to try to roast them, which is my favorite way of preparing vegetables.
I washed and sliced the radishes and placed them on a baking sheet with some olive oil, salt and pepper. Baked at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes and they were fantastic! The pepperiness of the radish faded and a sweetness came out from the caramelization. I added the them to a salad, and I loved the warm vegetable on top of cold lettuce leaves!
