We need some more color in our life these days, don’t we? If I didn’t convert you to love radishes with these roasted radishes, then let me seal the deal with radish toast with goat cheese and flaked sea salt!
Radishes are one of those things I’d never given much attention to. I think I discovered them on the veggie tray at my French-themed bridal shower. We brought home the leftovers and I realized I loved crudite and that radishes weren’t just for color!
I bought some more some time later and assumed I need to do the crudite again. That was silly, but whatever got me eating veggies, right?
Only since discovering my husband could eat them on his LowFODMAP diet did I decide to buy them again. And now with some extra in the house, I’m dreaming up more conconctions (i.e. radish toast with goat cheese, sea salt, and – OBVIOUSLY – bread).
Common radishes in market have that bright red/pink skin. What you might find available now are Easter Radishes. They have purple, red, and pink skins. They’re so beautiful!
The size of these radishes also tends to vary, giving you a wonderful assortment to make your food a little more artistic!
Radish Toast Toppings
If you just placed sliced radishes on top of tasty goat cheese (you have to try the chevre from Stepladder Creamery) on top of sliced, toasted baguette – it wouldn’t be bad. Let’s be honest. But if you really want to kick these toasts up to the next level (and make them memorable), the flaked sea salt and chive are musts.
Radishes can have something that resembles a peppery taste, so pairing it with the salt, it’s a classic combination. And, truth be told, chives make everything better in my humble opinion!!
GOAT CHEESE RADISH TOASTS
If you're wondering how to enjoy radishes, start with basic deliciousness - goat cheese on toast! These radish toasts blend their unique flavor with the creaminess of goat cheese on delicious bread slices. Top with flaked sea salt for the perfect flavor combination!
- 8 to 10 slices baguette toasted
