After the strong and record-breaking windstorm that rocked through Western and Eastern Washington, we had quite a fiasco on our hands at the farm. The hoop house built just this summer had ripped and broken in the strong gusts. Sadly, we had to pull all of the radishes that had been growing peacefully in the greenhouse and find a way to enjoy them. Having never experienced radishes cooked, rather only raw and chopped in salads, I decided to get creative and cook them in a variety of new ways. First up? Roasted Radishes.
A handful of radishes
Some olive oil
Whatever spices you desire. I used sage, rosemary and salt.
Wash and chop the radishes in small pieces. I decided smaller was better because you got more of the delicious roasted flavor; more surface area for spices.
Toss the slices radishes in olive oil and lay out on a greased cooking sheet.
Add your chosen spices
Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes, until golden brown
Enjoy alone or as a side dish. The roasting takes away the radish’s bitter flavor and the result is smooth, creamy and tasty.
