Roasted Radishes – A delicious side dish made with just 4 simple ingredients in less than 20 minutes. This is the best way to cook radishes!
Anyone else at a loss for what to do with all of those radishes in their garden? I know this year we planted radishes in the garden and when they popped up, we threw them in the back corner of the fridge because we had no idea what to do with them. There is only so many times you can slice one up and put it on a salad. I started to wonder if I could roast them up in a cast iron skillet with some butter and garlic so I gave that a try and I was pleasantly surprised. They tasted great! Cooking them took some of the bitter edge off and made them really wonderful to eat!
