Serves: 4-5
Ingredients
  • 2 small bunches garlic scapes, cleaned and trimmed
  • 2 small bunches French breakfast radishes, cleaned, trimmed and halved (or quartered, depending on their size)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • juice of ½ a lemon
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • zest of ½ a lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Wash and trim your garlic scapes, then cut them into halves or thirds, depending on their length. Wash and trim your radishes (you can leave a bit of green on top, if you like, for color) and halve or quarter them, depending on their size.
  2. Place your vegetables on a baking sheet, toss with the olive oil, salt, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, black pepper and fresh thyme sprigs. Place in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until the radishes are tender. Sprinkle with your lemon zest and a little extra sea salt before serving, if you like. This makes a great side dish or is wonderful tossed with pasta or over mixed greens.
