Delicious! We had these radishes with shoe string sweet potatoes and medium rare NY strips topped with Maytag blue cheese. This lovely radish recipe is from Bon Appetit magazine’s April 2011 issue. I was shocked at how much I like these radishes.
Roasted Radishes with Brown Butter, Lemon, and Radish Tops
- 2 bunches medium radishes (such as red, pink, and purple; about 20)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- Coarse kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 450°F. Brush large heavy- duty rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Cut off all but 1/2 inch of green radish tops; reserve trimmed tops and rinse them well, checking for grit. Coarsely chop radish tops and set aside. Cut radishes lengthwise in half and place in medium bowl. Add 11/2 tablespoons olive oil and toss thoroughly to coat. Place radishes, cut side down, on prepared baking sheet; sprinkle lightly with coarse salt. Roast until radishes are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally, about 18 minutes. Season to taste with more coarse kosher salt, if desired.
Melt butter in heavy small skillet over medium-high heat. Add pinch of coarse kosher salt to skillet and cook until butter browns, swirling skillet frequently to keep butter solids from burning, about 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in fresh lemon juice.
