I hate radishes. Yes, you heard me right. I hate them and always have. After I had learned that radishes are one of the foods that may help your pH level, I decided to give them a try one more time. Not only may radishes help your pH level, but they also are high in Vitamin C, help digestion, and may help remove toxins from the body.

Roasted Radishes with Honey
Since I know I don’t like radishes plain, I decided to try Roasted Radishes with Honey instead. Roasting radishes will help take out some of the strong taste. If you use coconut oil and local honey in this recipe, it even qualifies as a Paleo side dish. If you’re not following the Paleo diet, you can certainly use butter instead but the coconut oil gives it a nice taste.
- One bunch of radishes, remove the tops & quarter each
- 2 tbsp local honey
- 2 tbsp coconut oil or grass fed butter, melted
- 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- Preheated oven to 450F with the cast iron pan in it.
- Mix the melted oil/butter, honey and vinegar together.
- Add the radishes and stir.
- Put into hot cast iron pan and return to oven.
- Stir occasionally and cook for about 20 minutes.
This recipe is very quick and easy to make. If you have something you’re making in the oven already, it’s a matter of a few seconds to put this together as a side dish. Roasting does help mellow the taste and the added hint of sweetness from the coconut oil, and the honey give it a slightly sweet taste that I enjoyed.
When they’re done, you can eat them as is, or sprinkle a little bit of Feta cheese and some parsley, mint or basil over the top. I served them on a bed of arugula, but you could also serve them on beet greens.
