Roasted radishes are divine! They lose a bit of their peppery kick and become beautifully tender and mellow. Earthy asparagus compliment them perfectly and the quick maple mustard dressing adds a wonderful taste. A quick side dish, salad, light dinner or lunch! Vegan and gluten free.
Raw radishes are great, but can be a bit peppery. However, if you roast them, the pepperiness fades away and they completely mellow out! This has been a major revelation to me.
There's only so many that I can use raw in a salad, so I always roast any leftover ones. They get beautifully tender in the centre. The flavour comes through but without the fiery kick.
I adore them with other spring vegetables and this awesome maple mustard dressing. Plus, the radishes give a lovely pop of colour to the green vegetables.
Just chuck all the veggies onto the baking sheet and roast them. Meanwhile, make the dressing (it's like a vegan honey mustard dressing). Drizzle it on the hot salad and enjoy!
We love it as a hot salad or a side dish.

Roasting asparagus also makes them absolutely delicious. Actually, what vegetable doesn't benefit from being thrown into the oven and ignored for a while?!
Seasonal asparagus is so flavourful and delicious. We often have it steamed, but roasting it is divine. I love the subtle char it gets as the ends darken and the stem becomes soft and tender.
Like with the radishes, the easy Maple Mustard Dressing really helps enhance their tasty flavour.

Try these adaptations!
- Add a handful of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) for extra protein.
- Throw in some diced tofu.
- Add other veggies. Most will take longer to cook, so add those first and include the asparagus, radishes and spring onions for the final 15 minutes.
- Serve the roasted vegetables over lentils, grains, couscous, rice or other hearty carbs.

Maple Mustard Dressing
This maple mustard dressing only takes a minute to make, but it adds a delicious pop of flavour to the roasted veg. It's like a vegan version of honey mustard dressing.
Simply put the maple syrup, mustard (I used dijon but you could try yellow, stoneground, wholegrain etc), oil, salt and pepper into a jar and shake, or else add them to a bowl and whisk.
Then drizzle it onto the roasted vegetables once they've come out of the oven. Serve warm or cold.
This dressing would be wonderful on warm potatoes, green salad, roasted cauliflower and many other vegetarian and vegan recipes!

I roast radishes with whatever other veggies I'm roasting at the time. They turn out mild and sweet with a beautiful texture. Can't wait to try the radishes and asparagus with the addition of spring onions!
Roasted radishes are some of my favorite things!
We love roasted vegetables! It really does offer such a fantastic flavor.
I am obsessed with Asparagus! I never roasted thpugh.
Nice idea! 😊
i definitely need to try roasted radishes. I am not a huge fan of them raw, but they sound amazing roasted. Especially with that dressing 🙂
I love roasted asparagus, but I have never tried roasted radish before. Looks delicious.
Oh wow! Love this idea! It's so beautiful to look at, and yet so quick and easy to make. I'm like you - I sometimes buy radishes, add them to a salad or two, then they languish in the fridge until I (shamefully) throw them out.
Will try this. Love the sound of the delicious maple dressing, too! Thank you!
Adore the idea of roasting radishes, something I had not thought of before, but makes perfect sense. Mellowing the heat kick and sweetening it up a little with the maple syrup sounds perfect.
