These tender roasted radishes are a fine accompaniment for grilled steak or roast chicken. Once roasted, radishes become sweet and tender and take on a more mellow taste. These radishes are easy-to-make and so good! I really like radishes – all kinds of radishes – I hope you also will!
Learn how easy it is to make roasted radishes. Check out your local Farmers’ Market for different varieties of radishes to purchase. Purchase radishes that are smooth, brightly colored, and with tops that are green and fresh looking. Avoid radishes that are soft, dull-colored, have white or brown scars, or black spots. If the radish tops are yellow, limp or slimy, the radishes are old or have not been refrigerated properly.
