Spicy Roasted Radishes with Cilantro

Total Time: 1 Hour | Yield: 6-8 servings

Radishes are no longer the last thing to go on the crudite platter. Roasting radishes brings out their sweet flavor and makes them an easy summer side dish for steak, chicken, or fish. Topped with sour cream, jalapenos, and cilantro, roasted radishes have a little richness, a little kick, and a lot of fresh flavor.
