Spring has sprung and summer is fast approaching and that means farmers markets and CSA boxes. We are doing Dominion Harvest right now, and I really like it. You can choose weekly or every other week deliveries (we do every 2 weeks right now). On Wednesday’s a red box full of veggies, eggs, cheese and sometimes a little surprise (we got jam our first week) are delivered.
This week our box contained collards (recipe for a salad coming next week) more eggs and cheese, shitakes, strawberries, rainbow chard, spring onions and radishes. Now I was excited about everything except the radishes. What to do? I am not a fan of raw radishes so it was off to the oracle of ideas, twitter. A few ideas to quick pickle them, slice and eat with fresh butter and salt and then a suggestion to roast them. Roasted veggies, yes.
Roasted Radishes with Spring Onion
1 bunch radishes, washed, tops trimmed off (save those and add them to a salad) and quartered
1 large spring onion, sliced
salt and pepper
rep pepper flakes (optional)
Toss the radishes and onion with oil, salt, pepper, italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. Spread on a sheet pan, roast at 400 degrees for 40-45 minutes, stirring half way through. Delicious! Roasting takes the “bite” out of the radishes, if you are not a fan, this recipe should change your mind.
