{ Garlic Miso Roasted Radishes }

One of the those early garden delights we all look forward to is the crunchy, peppery radish. Our first round of radish seeds we planted this year didn’t germinate due to a bad batch of seed, so we are sadly STILL waiting to share this bright-coloured bounty with our CSA members.

Did you know you could roast radishes? Many people have never tasted them in any form other than raw (and sometimes pickled)– we sure hadn’t until we moved to the farm!

Cooking radishes takes away the spicy bite in them, leaving you instead with a sweet, subtle flavour like that of a young turnip. Add in a bit of garlic, lemon juice, and savoury miso paste as this recipe suggests, and you have a fresh delight for the senses! Give it a try and see for yourself– these flavourful little fellas do not disappoint.

A big thank you to Jessica Musslewhite of MUSHROOMS & THYME blog for this wonderful recipe and images featuring our beloved garden produce. As we enter into another exciting market garden season here at Grey Arrow Farm, we can’t wait to experience all the recipe goodness she has in store for us!
