I’m not a big fan of radishes, but a recent post by Darya Pino Rose got me interested in roasting some. Roasting mellows them out. According to NutritionData.com, a half cup of raw sliced radishes has only 2 grams of digestible carbohydrate. That would also supply 29% of the adult RDA for vitamin C, 7% of folate, and 8% of potassium. Antioxidants? Other phytochemicals? Googling “nutritional benefits of radishes” yields a bunch of unreliable sources.

I eat radishes mixed in a pesto with red potatoes and onions and some sausage and roast them for about an hour, my family loves them.
Kate, you’re making me hungry. When’s dinner?!
