I was a little scared of this recipe - but really curious about what radishes would be like cooked (plus I'm always looking for a little 'strange'). Great! The cooking time in this recipe is perfect the radishes get softened - but still have a crispness to them. Cooking also brings out the 'rootiness' of the radish but they are still peppery. I did end up adding more wine near the end for flavor but really if you 'salt & pepper to taste as the recipe suggests you should have no problem with blandness. Thanks for the recipe - we'll do it again! Read More

I followed the recipe salted and peppered etc. but did not care for this at all. My dad loves radishes so much and was looking forward to this but even he didn't want to eat them. We will be eating them raw again from now on. Read More

I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I went a little heavier with the wine. Used different radishes and thyme out of the garden and will make this again soon. Read More

My radishes took a few minutes longer to cook so the color was almost entirely bleached out of them (although the sauce was very pretty) - I think next time maybe I'll try halving the radishes especially if they're on the large size. My only change was to use sherry instead of wine (realized I only had red wine on hand...) and the sherry added a nice flavor to this dish. Pretty good and I'll most likely make again when I'm looking for something "different". Thanks! Read More

I had a nearly full pound of radishes that needed to be used. Salad making wasn't using them fast enough and the kids wouldn't eat them anyways. Stumbled on this recipe because a photo on the home page photo contest. They turned out pretty good. Reminded me of turnips. The kids still wouldn't eat them not even a taste but I will still make them again when I've got a surplus of radishes. I baked them covered in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes. Read More

In my quest to shake up the veggies in my life I stumbled across this recipe. It's very delicious and makes a colorful plate. My radishes did take much longer to cook than the recipe said. I think next time I will slice them in half. Read More

Really great way to use radishes which I normally don't eat. Pleasant slightly sweet taste which everyone likes. Have made this several times and think it stands well without the thyme if you are out. Either way it's a unique use for radishes and will become a summer table staple in our house. Read More

I made this recipe recently when my aunt gave me a lot of extra multi-colored radishes. I made this exactly as written and found the radishes pretty bland. I don't think I will make these again but this was a pretty and interesting way to use up surplus radishes. Thanks for sharing! Read More
