1 tablespoon olive oil
2 large bunches radishes, roots trimmed and cut into halves

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.
