Carrying on with the roasted vegetable obsession, I bring you roasted radishes. I know, you’re falling into one of three camps right now:

1) I hate radishes, goodbye.

2) I love roasted radishes!

3) HUH? Roast? Radishes? Weird!

I have something to say to each of you.

1) For you radish-haters: Wait! Don’t leave! My husband hates radishes too but he loves these.

2) For you who are reading this thinking, duh — roasted radishes are the best: Woohoo! Let’s be friends. PS: How do you make yours?

3) For you who have no clue what I am talking about: Read on. Your life is about to change.

About These Roasted Radishes

Radishes — tossed with a bit of olive oil, honey, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and stuck in a hot, hot, hot oven — become the tastiest little morsels. It’s no secret (far from it, actually) that I love roasted vegetables. Remember when I showed you how to roast broccoli? We eat that roasted broccoli at least once a week. But I of course don’t discriminate against cauliflower, carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, squash, or any other vegetable under the sun. Even Brussels sprouts! It’s all fair game. (PS: Make sure to check out my full list of roasted vegetables!)

The other night…this was my dinner: Sweet potatoes, broccoli, mushrooms, radishes, onions, and a Killian’s. It works, right?

I cooked a couple of chicken breasts for the other member(s) of my family who prefer to have meat with dinner. Everyone is happy!
