Farmer's Market Food - Roasted Radishes

We've been going to the farmer's market almost every week now that we discovered there is a vegan food truck there!  Finally they are starting to have more and more produce.  Last week I bought some nice radishes but I kept forgetting to pack them in my lunch so a week later I still had almost all of them still sitting in the refrigerator.

Several years ago I read online about someone roasting radishes.  I couldn't even imagine what that would taste like since I had only had them raw.  It is amazing the change they go through after roasting for about 30 minutes.  The flavor completely mellows and they turn a pretty pink color.  Usually we go through stages with radishes where we all eat a ton of them and then all of a sudden stop.  That is when I go back to this recipe and serve them as a side dish with dinner.

I've never actual measured my ingredients since it depends on how many radishes I have on hand so this is more of a technique than a recipe.

Roasted Radishes

Cleaned radishes cut into bite size pieces (usually quartered)
Vegetable oil

Lightly coat the radishes with oil then add salt and pepper to suit your taste.  Roast in a 425 degree oven for about 30 minutes, stirring once or twice.
