Seriously, these are pretty delish, that peppery crunchiness is fabulous. But if they are too “bitey” for you, have you ever considered roasting them?
First, some quick facts about radishes:
🔎 They are a root vegetable, come in several different colours & are related to cabbages.
🔎 Great source of vitamin C & the red skinned ones are super high in silica.
🔎 They are antibacterial & antifungal, as well as rich in antioxidants.
🔎 Radishes contain the phytochemical, indole, which promotes detoxification – seriously, your liver & kidneys love these little guys.
So, roasting radishes? I often chuck some radishes in when I’m doing a tray of roast vege – if you have not tried, it is super delish. Even if you are not a huge fan of radishes, seriously give this a try. The baking brings out the sweetness but tones the peppery flavour down. Honestly, even my non radish peeps are onboard with roasted radishes!
