I love radishes. When I start seeing them in the markets in the spring, I can't wait to grab some up. Radishes are usually eaten raw often only in salads. I also love them pickled like the ones you get in an authentic Mexican restaurant. But did you know that they can be roasted? Roasted Herbed Radishes are delicious and a great side dish for grilled or roasted meats.

What do roasted radishes taste like?
Radishes usually elicit a love-or-hate reaction. Many don't like raw radishes because they can be a bit peppery or spicy. That's just the reason I like them raw ... especially with a bit of cold, grass-fed, salted butter and a bit of flaky sea salt. But when radishes are roasted, they mellow out quite a lot and, in fact, are a bit like roasted potatoes.
What kind of radishes are good for roasting?
Any radish you would eat raw can be roasted. It's that simple. Roasting large radishes is an exceptional idea because they are so big and sometimes hard to consume the whole bunch before they start to go bad.
Alright ... have I convinced you to try Roasted Herbed Radishes! Here's how to do it.
Preparing Roasted Herbed Radishes is as easy as pouring oil over them, seasoning them, and roasting them for a few minutes. It doesn't take a ton of prep or time.
What kind of seasonings are delicious?
As always, SALT--a good sea salt! And a bit of pepper and some herbs or spices, if you choose. Try some basil, or chives. Oregano or thyme. What about garlic, cumin, and paprika? You do you.
