I could rave all day about my love for root veggies, but I hardly ever get excited about radishes. Mayyybe you can slip a few paper thin ones by me in a salad, but really I’m an all kinds of meh no thanks for them. Fall is finally in the air and you know what? I’ve had a complete change of heart. A full blown 180 straight into radish love affair territory…roast these babies up and suddenly I’m high fives over the moon for them.

I’m talking seriously delicious like candy/mad crushing/I’m making them for Thanksgiving style of love happening over here…I’m almost embarrassed about it. It’s time to put the rad back into radishes…

Not only is this the easiest side dish possibly (no definitely) ever, it’s also super quick. All you need are 4 basic ingredients, an oven and 20-so minutes. Get ready, because it’s time to start impressing your holiday peeps with some radical rootage! Heeeyy!
