1 bunch of radishes
1 tablespoon olive oil

In a bowl, toss the radishes with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and any herbs you are using.
Spread the radishes out on a baking sheet in a single layer.
Roast the radishes in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until they are fork-tender and slightly browned on the edges.
Remove the radishes from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
Roasted radishes are a great way to add some variety and flavor to your meals. The high heat of the oven brings out the natural sweetness of the radishes while also adding a nice char and smoky flavor. The radishes are also a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and fiber.
For a more complex flavor profile, you could also add some grated parmesan cheese, lemon zest or even some honey in the last 5 minutes of roasting. These roasted radishes can be paired with any meat dish or even a simple pasta, adding a burst of freshness to your plate.
