Roasted Radishes with Their Greens, A Perfect Valentine's Day Bite!



What something sweet, tender yet caramelized with a sexy crunch for a side dish for Valentine's Day dinner? I suggest you change things up by simply roasting radishes with their greens.  The roasted and wilted greens taste similar to kale chips yet the radishes retain their beautiful color but mellow their peppery taste.  Use the roasted radishes with their greens as a side dish to your meat dish like lamb, chicken or pork or toss 'em in a salad.












Roasted Radishes & Their Greens

ingredients

1 bunch of radishes and their greens, washed thoroughly

1/2 Tablespoon olive oil 

Kosher Salt and fresh ground pepper

preparation

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Make sure to wash thoroughly and towel dry the radishes and their greens. If you purchases large radishes, I recommend halving them. 

Separate half the radishes from their greens, toss with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. I used my SILPAT.   Roast, for about 20 minutes or  until the radishes are tender and caramelized and their greens are crisp.  Let cool and enjoy!
 PS. Feel free squeeze fresh lemon juice.
