We’re in full fall swing, let the #roastallthings commence! Starting with root vegetables to be exact, I love roasting vegetables to bring out their natural sweetness and make a warm savory side dish to pair with any meal. Radishes are a long time favorite of mine and with so many varieties, there are endless possibilities when it comes to preparing them.
I especially love roasted radishes as they make a great alternative to potatoes while still maintaining lower starch, and lower carb, without lacking flavor or satisfaction.
I’ve been loving spending days walking around my neighborhood, seeing all the fall foliage then coming home and roasting vegetables. It makes the my little apartment warm, cozy and smell amazing.
These radishes not only have the most vibrant color, but their flavor becomes a nutty rich taste that is complimented perfectly with a good dose of Tin Star foods brown butter ghee and fresh thyme.
One of the best things I learned from living and cooking in Italy is that simplicity is best. Not overbearing ingredients by adding too much to a single food, but rather let it stand alone and compliment it. That’s what I love most about these roasted radishes, they are simply delicious.
