Roasted Radishes

This recipe, or at least the origins of it, comes to me courtesy of my oldest daughter.

A while back, I had a large bunch of radishes in my produce box, and, let's be honest, you can only eat so many radishes in your salad.  She mentioned to me that she roasts them, and I decided to give it a try!


1 bunch of radishes, washed well
2 cloves garlic
6 scallions
salt and pepper to taste
olive oil to coat

Wash the radishes, remove the tops and cut them in half.  Mince the garlic, and chop the scallions.  Put all 3 in a bowl, add a little salt and pepper, then enough olive oil to coat them.  Stir together thoroughly, then turn onto a greased baking tray and spread in a single layer.  Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or so, until the radishes are tender.

The peppery flavor of the radishes greatly mellows with roasting.  This made a great side dish with steak, because it had enough flavor to stand out.  And I believe I added the radish greens to soup in lieu of spinach, which was another win!  Sadly, no pictures; I so often forget to take them nowadays.

I'm going to try to remember to write more often.  In order to (maybe) make it easier to decide what to do, I've started a sewing blog: Marjie Ann Sews!  So, food, family and pups here, sewing and such things there.  Maybe I'll be more organized and less indecisive that way.

Edited to add: Sewing blog is live; here is the link: Marjie Ann Sews!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I've never heard of cooking radishes and may try it to see if I like them any better.

I've never heard of roasted radishes but it sounds interesting. I saw someone on another blog eating them sliced thinly on buttered toast. Didn't look that appetizing to me. Can't wait to read your sewing blog! Is it live yet?

I tried this long ago and loved it, thanks for the reminder. Diane
