Roasted Spring Vegetables

Roasted Spring Vegetables

I was so pleasantly surprised to learn how wonderful radishes are when oven roasted.  It never even occurred to me to cook them.  To me radishes were only served as part of a veggie tray.  Growing up, I remember mom making ‘radish roses’ and serving them on a nibble tray during the cocktail hour.  I tried to like them. Just didn’t.

Flash forward into adulthood with a seasoned palate and sense of culinary adventure, I can now say I welcome radishes with open arms and mouth.  I’ve learned to love them raw, especially in salads but I now also enjoy them roasted.

We already know that roasting veggies is a great way to enhance their flavors.  What was once bitter becomes slightly nutty and sweet.  In the case of radishes, there is less bite with a nice mild flavor.  Delicious.
