I’ll be totally honest with you — I’m not a huge fan of raw radishes. I find the raw ones a little bit too peppery and bitter for my taste.
Roasted radishes, on the other hand, taste like an entirely new vegetable. They’re sweet, juicy, and absolutely delicious!
The first time I made oven-roasted radishes was a couple years ago while visiting my dad in Switzerland.
He had bought a bunch of radishes, and they were sitting on the kitchen counter untouched. I decided to try roasting them one evening and both of us couldn’t get over how good they tasted!
We loved them so much that I made them multiple times during my visit, and even wrote down the recipe for my dad.
If you’re someone who doesn’t love the taste of raw radishes (or you’re simply curious to try a new way of eating them), you may just want to give this recipe a shot!
