Can You Roast Radishes?

Radishes are traditionally added raw to salads and they taste mildly sweet,  pungent and spicy crunch in the end. You will be amazed that cooked radishes result in a mildly sweeter taste without the pungent and spicy flavor. Roasting radishes actually meld the flavors. 

Radish Nutrition

Radishes are related to broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, mustard and are members of the Brassicaceae family. Radish bulbs also called globes, can be as small as a grape and as large as a basketball. There are many varieties. 

The most popular radish here in the USA is round with red skin and white flesh. Originally radishes were black, but other varieties are pink, grey, or even two-toned green and white. 

They are a good source of vitamin B6, C, potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, calcium, fiber, folate, and riboflavin.  Radishes are natural diuretics, they purify the urinary tract system and kidneys. Studies contain detoxifying agents called indoles, these substances fight free radicals in the body. Read Pubmed.
