Pan-Roasted Radishes

 Do you guys remember Fraggle Rock? Man, I loved that show as a kid! Little radish-munching-communist-puppets embarking on adventures. What's not to love?

  I've been thinking about that show- which happens to be having its 30 year anniversary- lately because like my little fraggle friends I've been on a crazy radish kick. I have discovered the joy of a cooked radish. Yum.

   See, I never realized you could cook these little root vegetables up and completely transform their flavor. Cooking them takes a little of the bite away and you end up with a something almost like a potato with a kick. I'm hooked.

 This couldn't be easier. Just wash up and trim your radishes. Quarter them and season them up with a little S&P and nutmeg(I don't know why- I just like it in there) Cook those babies until they are just fork tender.

 I had mine on the side with a little broccoli and a grilled chicken breast. I am loving using the grill again- thank you summer!

While eating be sure to check for any Fraggles! :D

Pan-Roasted Radishes


  • 1-2 bunches of radishes
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Pinch of fresh nutmeg

Wash and trim away the greens of the radishes. Cut into quarters or halves depending on size. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the radishes and garlic. Season to taste with salt, black pepper, and a bit of nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally until just fork tender- about 10 minutes.
