Roasted Red Radishes with Salt and Pepper

Roasted Red Radishes

As a general rule I am not too fond of radishes of any variety; I find the taste too strong. However, ever since I saw Dimple Makani’s post on Roasted Radishes in Brown Butter Sauce, I have been wanting to try this simple yet oh-so-appealing dish. And try them I did this past week. Now I am in love with this dish. 🙂

While Dimple has a more decadent version that uses a Brown Butter Sauce, I made a simpler version that uses just salt and pepper for seasoning.
