Hi everyone! I know I said yesterday I wouldn’t be blogging again until I came home from work in two weeks, but it turns out that there is a blizzard at the mine today so I won’t be flying there until tomorrow. Today I have been relaxing (and going through my work email) at my hotel, it is nice to get a very quiet day off! I find when I am at home I am always on the go because there are projects for me to do everywhere. Since I have some quiet downtime I figured I would write up a quick recipe post 🙂
Last week I tried a new recipe for roasted radishes, and they were so good and easy I just had to share! I love radishes but have only ever had them raw in salads and veggie trays. This recipe only requires 4 ingredients and is very simple to make. The resulting roasted radishes are fantastic – they taste peppery and sweet and this will definitely be a recipe I make again!
My husband Eric was busy judging beers for 3 nights last week after he finished work so I was on my own for supper. Usually when this happens I go through the random pantry items I have hanging around and make something to use them up. I had some mashed potatoes and shake n bake chicken breading that needed to be used but I wanted a tasty veggie side dish to spice up the somewhat plain meal. When going through the various blogs I read I found this recipe on Toronto blog Living Lou for roasted radishes: http://www.livinglou.com/2016/04/how-to-roast-radishes.html.
To make roasted radishes all you need is the following:
- 1 bunch of radishes
- 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- Freshly cracked pepper to taste
To make the roasted radishes start by preheating the oven to 450°F. Next, wash the radishes and slice off the stalks and any blemishes. Cut each radish into quarters and place them into a medium bowl. Toss them with the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Then place the radishes on a large baking sheet and roast for 15-20 mins, stirring halfway through the cooking time.
Serve the roasted radishes immediately and enjoy! As seen below, the radishes caramelize beautifully and turn a lovely light pink colour. Probably one of the prettiest and tastiest veggie side dishes I have made, and it is very easy too!
I hope you will give these roasted radishes a try and that you are all enjoying the lovely spring weather! I have a hot date with the cold Arctic starting tomorrow, but I will be back in two weeks with more cooking, baking, decorating and fashion posts – I’ve got so many posts planned!
