02 Jun roast radishes
A plate of roast radishes sounds like a child’s worst nightmare, a dish found in a Roald Dahl story. The Twits would eat a plate of roasted radishes for breakfast. You won’t believe how delicious they are roasted. Paired with the salty feta and some fresh mint, this is an amazing little side salad that also holds its own at supper time, served with a chunk of crusty bread.
