Springtime is when the radishes are starting to be seen fresh in the vegetable markets, so why not use them in more ways than just in salads.
I have never been a real fan of radishes but my husband loves them. I have to admit that I have tried to avoid them. When he goes to the grocery store or vegetable market with me, when I get to the checkout there is usually a little bag of radishes in the buggy (I know I’m Southern and we call them buggies). I guess they just miraculously jump in there.
Now……what am I supposed to do with these little red balls?
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Coarse salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Fresh lemon juice
- Toss the radishes with oil.
- Season them with salt (I use no salt) and fresh ground black pepper.
- Place them on a baking sheet and roast at 450 degrees. Stir them once.
- Roast until they are slightly tender and charred, usually about 15 minutes.
- Sprinkle with more salt.
- Drizzle with lemon juice.
These would make a great side dish for a beef recipe, especially one enjoyed out on the patio on a cool spring evening.
- Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
- Salt (no salt)
