watermelon radishes - a new twist

so i got these beautiful watermelon radishes from our CSA (community supported agriculture) - Eating With the Seasons and needed to find a way to serve them cooked.
why cooked?  raw, it's a little spicy for hubby and i since we don't have other things to pair it with.  
so i decided to roast them with a little honey to cut the spiciness and they turned out beautifully.

honey roasted watermelon radishes

4 medium watermelon radishes, cubed
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp honey

preheat oven to 400
toss everything together
spread onto roasting pan
roast in oven for 15 min, take out of oven, toss cubes around
put back in oven for another 15 min, or until it reaches your desired texture.  we like it soft, with the honey caramelizing the outside to a nice brown.


  1. Learned something new today! I had never heard of watermelon radishes...! Sounds delicious though especially roasted like you did.... Hmm, now let's see and try to find them!
