roasted radishes.

i bit into a raw radish one time three years ago, and i haven't touched them since. i'm not sure what i was expecting, but i was not a fan! i wasn't as much of a vegetable eater back then though, and i know better now that most vegetables are better when they are cooked (in my opion). plus i'm all about giving second chances. so....dear radish, we meet again! this time i oven roasted them with carrots and lemon, and sorry that there are way too many photos in this post but i honestly can't remember the last time i ate something so pretty.

INGREDIENTS
radishes
carrots
fresh lemon juice (and lemon slices)
olive oil
thyme
salt & pepper

trim radishes and cut carrots to the size you want. toss with olive oil, plenty of salt & pepper, thyme, and fresh lemon juice. spread on baking pan and bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes (or until vegetables are tender), turning vegetables over halfway through baking.

*since the carrots cook faster, the radishes were still a little firm when i took them out. so next time i make these i might actually steam the radishes for a few minutes before roasting them. and don't forget the lemon! the lemon was the dealbreaker, for sure. happy roasting!

  5. It looks delicious! I've been trying to incorporate more vegetables in my house - we tend to eat only lettuce/broccoli/ carrots. I've been in love with eggplants lately, but now I want to try radishes too!
    Your pictures are wonderful! What is that black background?

  8. they're so cute! I've not had many radishes before... I think I did the same as you - tried it raw and didn't touch it again. perhaps I shall have to rethink radishes...

  10. Cooked radishes are good--My friend likes to eat them in curry, which sounds weird--but try it.

  21. Just by the colors, I can tell it will taste amazing. I had bought some radishes before and was told to mix with steamed potatoes for the first time eating them... yeah didn't work for me. Hated them ever since. But, this? I'm so down to try them out again.

  23. One of my classmates made a stop motion video with fruit and vegetables and he used the radishes similar to some of your compositions. It reminded me of synchronized swimmers spinning in a circle. Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures.

  24. This is on tonight's menu! We have radishes from the farmer's market and had no idea what to do with them. Thank you!
    Do you mind if I ask what camera and lens you shot these with? They're gorgeous.
