Garden Fresh Roasted Vegetables

Do you have Radishes, Turnips, Peas and Asparagus in your Garden?

I do – and didn’t know what to do with them – until now!

 

I have an abundance of radishes and peas in my garden and we can only eat so many of them fresh.  Then I found out you can roast radishes!  Who knew – only ever heard of eating them fresh.

So I cut up and threw in a baking dish – 3 radishes, 1 turnip, 6 pea pods (left whole) and 3 small stalks of asparagus.  All fresh from my garden!  I kept the amounts small because only my husband and I were eating and we weren’t sure if we would like it…but we did!

I added a couple of pats of butter and a little seasoning salt.

And then I baked at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes.

I forgot to take a picture of the dish before we ate it!!  But here is a pic of what was left in the baking dish!  Not very pretty, but very delicious!

Don’t be afraid to experiment in the kitchen.  I didn’t follow a recipe for this – I just made it up with what I had fresh from the garden and in the pantry.
