Did you know that roasting radishes makes them way sweeter and removes their famous sharp bite? Neither did I until I had an abundance of radishes and started experimenting with ways to cook them! They mellow out and caramelize in the oven, proving my hypothesis that roasted veggies = best veggies!!!
I roasted my radishes with asparagus and flavored them with fresh garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper. You could substitute the olive oil with melted vegan butter, but I think the olive oil has a greater depth of flavor that comes through during the roasting process.
I recommend this side as a way to change up the usual roasted veggie routine, and experience the wonder of the roasted radish! You’ll never be the same again!
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and chopped
5-6 radishes, trimmed and chopped
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, toss asparagus, radishes, olive oil, salt and pepper and spread evenly on a nonstick baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, tossing halfway. Remove from oven and sprinkle with minced garlic, and toss to mix. Return to oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately
