If I know anything about vegetables, it’s that they’re better roasted. Seriously. A little salt, pepper and some time in the oven goes a long way when you’re preparing cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and more. Now, you can add roasted radishes to the list of veggies that become even more delicious when they’re fresh from the oven.
If you’ve never experimented with roasting radishes before, it’s definitely worth a try— namely because they’re so easy to prepare. And yes, vegetables are good for you, yadda yadda. But, let’s be honest: what’s most important is how they taste.
Fortunately, if you search “roasted radishes” on Pinterest, a whole new world of radish preparation will come alive. You can experiment with spice combinations and even how thick or thin you slice the vegetables to get the desired crunchiness.
