Radishes with Honey and Lemon

Braising radishes tames their natural pepperiness and adding honey rounds out their flavor with a touch of sweetness.

YIELD 4 servings


2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon each lemon juice and vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large bunches radishes, roots trimmed and cut into halves
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


1. Whisk honey, lemon juice and vinegar in a small bowl. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add radishes and sauté 2 minutes. Add honey mixture and stir to coat. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt, pepper and chives. Serve warm or room temperature.

I like the idea of roasting radishes with baby potatoes, and the lemon in this one is OK, but why must everything have a sweetener added to it?

This sounds good, except that I would use rice syrup or barley malt instead of the honey to make it vegan.
