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
Salt 
Pepper

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.
