    These roasted radishes are simple and delicious. I think 10 minutes in the oven is all they need–they’ll be a bit sweet but still crunchy.
    From one of my favorite food blogs, Leite’s Culinaria

    Ingredients
    1 pound radishes (about 2 bunches)
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    Leaves from 3 or 4 fresh thyme sprigs (about 1 tablespoon), plus more for garnish (optional)

    Method
    1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
    2. Lop the tops off the radishes, leaving about 1/2 inch of the green stem attached, if desired. Rinse the radishes well.
    3. Place the radishes on a rimmed baking sheet or in a large ovenproof skillet or two. [cast iron is perfect] Drizzle with the melted butter and olive oil, sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and thyme, if desired, and toss to coat. [even easier: put the butter and oil in the skillet and stick it in the oven as it pre-heats; it’ll be perfectly melted by the time you toss in the radishes]
    4. Roast for 10 to 15 minutes, until the radishes are tender but still slightly crunchy (red radishes will turn pale pink in color, lighter radishes may turn a pale gold). Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with fresh thyme, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature.
