  • 2 medium bunches radishes about 3 cups

  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil like avocado oil

  • salt and fresh cracked pepper

  • 2 tablespoons butter see Note

  • 1 clove garlic pressed or minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest optional

  • fresh thyme sprigs optional


  1. Preheat oven to 450º F.

  2. Prepare radishes: slice off the stems and any tail on the root (The part trailing off the radish itself). Halve small and medium radishes; quarter larger radishes.

  3. Spread radishes on a baking sheet and toss with oil and lots of salt and fresh cracked pepper. Roast 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until browned in spots and a bit wrinkled but not burned.

  4. While radishes roast, brown your butter. Heat butter in small light-colored saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Watch butter carefully over 3-5 minutes until it becomes a deep, toasty brown and smells nutty. Remove from heat immediately when it turns this color or begins to smell nutty.

  5. Let browned butter rest 2-3 minutes then stir in garlic and a pinch of salt, stirring well until garlic is slightly cooked and softened and fragrant.

  6. When the radishes are finished roasting, remove from oven and pour browned butter sauce over. Toss; sprinkle with lemon zest and thyme sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately.



A New Summer Favorite

Those peppery, earthy, biting summer bulbs, that beg for display on a vegetable tray get left behind more often than not, as they sometimes singe and overpower the palate with their spicy bite!

Here's another idea.

Roasted Radishes with Browned Butter and Garlic. 

The taste is akin to turnips. Still earthy, but soft, the bitterness tamed by butter and garlic, with just a hint of fresh thyme.


A new summer fave!



And here's another idea.

Fresh Radishes in Salt with Butter. An Ida Gartner fave. 

Arrange the radishes on a bed of sea salt. Spread the butter on slices of toasted, sliced French baguette and arrange artfully on a platter. Serve at room temperature.
