Roasted Radishes – Think Twice About This Peppery Veggie

FAIRY

So, my first question is this…..do you really like radishes?  I honestly can say that I can’t stand them…

UNTIL NOW!  I know they have a bunch of health benefits and I just love their sister, the Daikon Radish. I can eat those babies all day long.  There’s just something peppery about the taste that I don’t like them raw.

So, I had an idea and a thought (well, I actually saw a recipe for roasted radishes on a group I’m in on Facebook).  I still had a thought though.  I of course grabbed my iron skillet and added coconut oil. Chopped all the radishes up and I had two turnips I picked from my garden so I through those in the skillet too.  Added some rosemary and salt and pepper and baked them in the oven.  The rest is history!

Oh my goodness!  These are my new friends.  I like meeting new friends.

Here is my version of roasted radishes.  If you’re on the fence like I was, give these a try.  You will not be disappointed!  So delish!

Oh and the health benefits.  Check all this out:
