Expert Tips:

  • Roasted radishes pair very well with a protein dish such as soy sauce chicken, stuffed chicken breast, and cornish hens.
  • Substitute the butter with olive oil or avocado oil for a dairy-free version.
  • Spread the radishes out in a single layer in the baking dish. Overcrowding can cause uneven cooking and steaming rather than roasting.
