I like radishes being sprinkled with salt and then being dipped in a little butter. I once saw them being served in this way on a cooking programme. Then yesterday, I had this thought in my mind as to roasting them. I’ve never roasted radishes before, but after doing so realised they make a wonderful side dish.
What makes this dish, is the brown butter sauce that seeps into the white pores of the radishes and is released gently when bitten into. I know I will be making these again for sure. Especially on Sunday’s with our veggie roast!
Such a great colour, comforting warm taste and butter!…just love it! Watch out for my Fab 4 tomorrow…I’m so excited!!!
Have a beautiful day, Much love D x
1 bunch of red radishes
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste
2 thin slabs of unsalted butter
Dried coriander leaves
• Preheat the oven to 190°c. Chop the green tops off the radishes and slice thickly lengthwise
• Place in a lined baking tray, sprinkle some salt and massage in the olive oil
• Roast for 20-25 minutes until radishes are tender
• Meanwhile in a thick skillet pan, melt the butter on a low heat and stir
The butter will start foaming
Brown speckles will appear quite quickly, once you see this the butter is ready. Take off the heat and set aside
• Once the radishes are roasted, place in a serving bowl. Pour over the brown butter sauce and delicately flutter dried coriander leaves on top to garnish
Such a beautiful colour, like jewels 🙂 I love the idea of roasting radishes, but had never thought to… Do they go soft, or do they still retain a bit of crunch? Thanks for posting!
Hey honey! Yes the colour is gorgeous, I just love pink! They remain with a little crunch which is what I prefer. Cooking them longer would make them soft I think. Tasted very different to eating them raw. Must admit was quite an indulgent treat with the brown butter sauce x
Mmm, sounds delish, where would we be without indulgence!!
My favorite vegetable 🙂 I have to try this one out 🙂
That’s great! Do let me know when you make them x
I’ve never cooked radishes, that looks really interesting xx
Neither me! First time x
Raw tiny pink radishes always beckon me when I’m in my regular farmers market, but they are slightly hot on our palette. Now your idea of roasting them and then drowning in butter is brilliant. I’m trying it.
Thanks Namrata…I did find that after roasting the radishes the heat did dull down a little. I like them hot but the ones I used were medium hot. The brown butter makes them that bit more special! Hope you enjoy 🙂
I love radishes! This looks wonderful! Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you Sarah and Happy Thanksgiving to you too 🙂
I love radishes but I always eat mine raw…now I know I can happily roast them. Thanks for sharing this!
My pleasure Liz.. I’m really glad 🙂
What a delightful idea–I would honestly never have thought of roasting radishes, but now I guess I have to try it! Thanks for the inspiration, Dimple!
I’m really pleased you like it, do let me know when you try them x
Roasted radishes? Oh, I never thought of that. Good one Dimple!
I just thought just pop them into the oven and see what we get! 😉
Delightful dish! Simple and vibrant 🙂
Great idea Dimple and sounds so heavenly with the naughty brown butter sauce!!
Thanks Selma…naughty but nice 😉
Love radish. This is a great idea, if I can rescue any from my constant munching.
Lol..Aneela! I know exactly what you mean about the munching x
I’ve tried this a couple of times as a subsitute for potatoes and enjoyed them. I used olive oil but love your idea of the brown butter sauce as that will get them a lovely taste. On the list of things to try!
Ooh…I must try with olive oil…for a healthier version!
I love radishes, but anytime I use them is for a regulars salad… I bet lightly cooked with brown butter their taste turns out really interesting! thanks for sharing!
Oh definitely! I love radishes also…but the brown butter and them being warm just takes them to another level 😉
This looks great, I keep seeing beautiful radishes at the markets, now I have an excuse to buy them!
Excellent, I hope you enjoy them 🙂
Roasted radishes. They could be a real hit in our household on baked dinner nights.
Let me know how you like them…I’m loving baked dinner nights!
Love brown butter, so this sounds right up my alley 🙂
I have only had radishes raw – what a genious idea!
Oh Afra! You must try!! 🙂
Gorgeous…and so yummy!
Ummm it was…hope you’re having a serene Sunday xx
I don’t think enough people know you can do that to a radish!!! They taste great that way!!!
Very true..I don’t make them enough this way!
this really looks so unique!!!
They look glorious! 🙂
I love the colour….!
Yummy! 🙂 Beautiful color! 🙂
