Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Roasted Radishes



Did you even know that you can roast radishes?  I sure didn't until I was at a French restaurant with a friend one day.  I have to say--I was intrigued. 

The cool thing about roasting radishes is that they get a little browned, and the bite that raw radishes usually have mellows a lot.  Radishes don't store well in the fridge, in my experience.  So, if you buy a bunch of radishes, only intending to use a couple raw ones, this is a great way to use the rest. 

This really isn't a recipe.  It's more like an idea, just in case it never occurred to you to roast a radish before.  Give it a try--it's super simple and yummy.  Hope you all enjoy!  --J
