I know, I know. I have been quite slacking these past many months….but I am back!! I have accumulated many new recipes that I can’t wait to share with you all!! Not that you need to hear any excuses for the lack of posts, but I have been busy working on an exciting new project (I’ll share details when I can) and building my social media presence (something bloggers have to do supposedly…). Now that I am back, I want to share a very easy yet totally cool new recipe: Roasted Radishes. It’s summer and there is an abundance of radishes either in your garden or at the farmer’s markets. And while radishes are great added to salads or used with dips, have you ever thought about roasting them? They kind of look like new potatoes but their flavor is uniquely their own. Roasting totally transforms their crunchy, peppery flavor turning them soft and almost sweet. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
Take your bunch of radishes and trim the tops and bottoms. Give them a good scrubbing so they are nice and clean. Slice each one in half putting them in a single layer in a roasting pan. Generously add olive oil stirring to coat each radish half. Next, sprinkle the them with salt, pepper and thyme. Roast at 375º for 15-20 minutes (they are done when you can easily pierce with a knife). Remove from oven and squeeze fresh lemon juice all over. Top with parsley and serve immediately. What a unique side dish you just created!!
