Oven Roasted Vegetables
Roasting vegetables brings out the sweetness and the pure flavor of any vegetable. Roasting vegetables in the oven is such an easy way to cook vegetables, we do it most of the time.
Not only is roasting vegetables easy, but most of the time it makes for super tasty, slightly crispy vegetables that somehow become irresistible.
Vegetables irresistible? Yep, something I never thought I’d say but believe me. It’s possible. Just a little olive oil, salt and pepper is all you need for the most part. Try it with your vegetable side dish next time and see for yourself!
Have you ever tried roasted radishes? This was a first for me, I can’t say a radish is something that would be a go to vegetable for me. Raw radishes are pretty spicy, so I feel like you’re team radish or not. Not much in between.
BUT when you roast a radish…it’s a completely different vegetable.
The flavor becomes very mild, no spiciness at all, and the texture is soft but still has a bite to it. Almost like a potato, which is a win for the low carb diet followers since potatoes are usually not on most low carb menus.
So if you haven’t tried roasted radishes before, definitely try these Pan Roasted Radishes in Bacon Cream Sauce, I guarantee this roasted vegetable recipe will change your mind.
Simple roasted radishes with salt, pepper and olive oil are tasty all on their own. But you know I can’t stop there, these pan roasted radishes are simmered in a bacon cream sauce that’s so amazing you’ll forget your eating your vegetables.
This side dish recipe reminds me of something you’d get at a steak house, like creamed spinach or creamed corn. All those creamy, decadent side dishes to cut through those bites of juicy steak.
Pretty much a low carb dream right there. No, you can’t have those loaded tater tots but please, load up on the filet and creamy everything…
Can You Make These Roasted Radishes Ahead Of Time?
The one downfall to this ultimate, creamy roasted vegetable recipe is that you can’t make it ahead of time. It’s really not a dish that reheats well because the cream sauce will break upon reheating.
The good part about this roasted radish recipe is that it literally only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish so there’s not to much to worry about.
You can wash and cut the radishes ahead of time and fry your bacon ahead of time to save a few steps. Then once it’s time to get this recipe together it’ll be a breeze.
AND I wouldn’t worry too much about leftovers here, I can pretty much guess that there won’t be many radishes left behind.
So next time your looking for a side dish recipe to go along with that steak dinner, try these Pan Roasted Radishes in Bacon Cream Sauce! I hope you love them as much as we do!
