Really Rad Roasted Radishes (+ carrots & potatoes)

Roasted Radishes, Carrots and Potatoes

Roasted Radishes, Carrots and Potatoes

I know I’m a bit of a dork but I get so excited seeing vegetables growing in my garden.  The whole transformation from that teeny tiny speck of a seed into a wonderful, colourful and tasty piece of food that helps to feed my family still amazes me every time.  Yes, I know I can run over to the grocery store and buy my vegetables but there is just something so much more satisfying about growing it myself – oh, that and it tastes divine straight out of the ground.

Today after work I popped up to the garden to see how everything was coming along when I noticed some of my radishes were looking ready to be picked – how exciting, my first harvest of the year.  Now, I have to be totally honest here, I’ve never really liked radishes.  In fact, the only reason I grow them is for my mother-in-law’s partner Gary, but they’re out of the country for the next month.  So, that brought me to my dilemma this evening – what do I do now that I have all these radishes that are ready to be eaten.  After some consideration I realized that I could probably just roast them like I do my other veggies.  I gathered, chopped, seasoned and roasted and voila, they were spectacular. Roasting the radishes really mellows out the flavour so they aren’t so spicy. Note, that’s why you hardly see any radishes in the finished photo above – my husband ate most of them before I could get them to the plate to photograph.

This recipe is pretty loosie-goosie, just add a little more or a little less of whatever ingredients you like.

Ingredients:

  • 8-12 radishes halved or quartered
  • 8-12 baby potatoes quartered
  • 3-4 carrots chopped into chunks
  • tbsp olive oil (more if you use more veggies)
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp steak spices
  • 1/4 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp parsley

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Gather and wash veggies and chop into pieces.
  3. Put into a microwave safe bowl and microwave on HI for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Take out of microwave and pour olive oil and all the spices into the bowl with the veggies.  Stir around so that everything is evenly coated.
  5. Spread veggies onto a baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes.
  6. Take out of oven, let them rest for about 5 minute to cool and then serve with your meal.

    Thank you! This was great! It caught my eye because I’m planting some radishes but don’t really like them, even though I want to like them. They were tasty in this, not radish-y, and the potatoes and carrots were too. I’ll definitely make this again with radishes from the store and when I get my own!

      Oh I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe. I actually use this recipe all the time for my roasted veggies – just throw whatever veggies you have in and they’re always amazing like this.

    thanks from me too. Only occasionally use radishes in salads, but grew them this year with my granddaughter. Quick to sprout and easy to grow. Will roast some tonight! Would love feedback about the “tops” about more vegetables. Bought some beets and “experimented” – the greens sauteed were incredible.
