Roasted Chicken and Radishes

I tried out a new recipe today. Oven roasted radishes. They're awesome! If ever you crave a potato alternative ... give that a shot. The recipe is super simple to make. I'll post pictures later.

1.
Quarter a bunch of radishes.

2.
Toss with olive oil.

3.
Place on a baking sheet and season as you wish - freshly ground pepper, rosemary, sea salt, etc.

4.
Cook for 25-30 in a 350 degree oven. You may want to turn or toss the pieces at about the 20 minute mark (optional).

5.
Enjoy!

Update:
I think the next time I make these, I'll probably cook them 5 minutes longer (so that they'll be even softer - a texture even closer to potatoes). Careful with the salt too. My "LC potatoes" were a little over-salted. I sea-salted by eye. Apparently I need glasses. :-)

I will put your oven-roasted radishes on my list to try! Cro puts them in with the pot with a roast to slow cook and they turn out great too. Thanks for another way to cook them, yum.

Oct,

I think I first read about the use of radish on your blog!

It's just been too hot to make slow cooked foods these days. In the Fall, I plan to add some radish to our crock pot cookin' ala Cro!

Hope you both have a great weekend!

Thanks, Cilla.

Hope your weekend rocks!

Angie,

I know, right?! I surprised Mad by telling her we were having potatoes as a side dish for dinner. She thought I lost my mind (again)! :-)

I think the next time I make them I may cook them a few minutes longer and use slightly less salt. That should make them even tastier.

ooh radishes? I will have to try it! What about rutabegas? I bought some of those the other day thinking they were turnips and now I have no idea if they are even low carb at all!!
