Radishes become sweet and tender when roasted in a hot oven in this easy radish recipe. If the roasting doesn't mellow the bite of the radish enough, stir in a sprinkle of sugar or honey along with the butter and thyme.

Soooo easy and surprisingly pleasant - with one addition. When trying to add variety to your table and use local fresh produce pick up some winter radishes (and I added beets). All of the sometimes harsh flavor punch these two sometimes impart baked out yielding a light pleasant dish. Enjoyable to smell with a nice texture and taste. Next time and there will be one soon I will improve on the presentation and make cleanup a bit easier - somehow. It could be garnished and sprinkled with a number of things but I enjoyed the pure and simple character of the recipe. Thanks EatingWell! Pros: Great use for radishes from local farm. Cons: Recipe calls for large baking dish - A 2qt dish is better. And cleaning the dish is a drag. Read More
