Honey-Roasted Radishes

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Roasting mellows radishes’ sharp bite, as does a touch of honey and delicate white balsamic vinegar. Wilted radish tops add great texture and a pop of color to the dish. Serve with lamb, steak, or pan-roasted trout.


  • 1-3/4 lb. radishes (about 2 bunches), tops removed and reserved
  • 2 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 Tbs. white balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven, set a 12-inch ovenproof skillet (preferably cast iron) on the rack, and heat the oven to 450°F.
  • Trim the radishes and then halve or quarter them lengthwise, depending on their size. Trim and discard the stems from the tops, wash the leaves thoroughly, and pat dry or dry in a salad spinner.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the honey, butter, vinegar, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Add the radishes and toss until coated. Transfer to the hot skillet, spread in a single layer, and roast, stirring occasionally, until the radishes are crisp-tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the radish leaves, and toss until the leaves are just wilted; serve.

    This recipe tastes horrible, I had to through away more than half of it, as we could just not finish it due to the taste. What a fantastic way to waste a bunch of perfectly good radishes. Not impressed.

    This recipe transforms the bitter radish into an outrageously delicious side. It's also a great use of the leaves. Recommended with fish and pork.
