Oven Roasted Radishes!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

If someone had told me that I would love roasted radishes, I would have said, "are you kidding?" Actually, I have never and I do mean never been a fan of, the radish. They get hot or spicy with size and often overpower any salad or sandwich they are put into.

But this is the second recipe I have made that has the cook, roast those little red guys. The first recipe was a roasted radish and carrot salad. It was wonderful! I plan on making that salad again. Vegetable salads, especially roasted vegetable salads are on my radar right now.

In my traipse through Pinterest looking for radish recipes, I also came across this one for a simple roasted radish side dish. Not only delicious, it is easy and uses those large radishes that do have a bit of a bite to them.

Roasted Radishes, easy and delicious! Perfect for those radishes that were found in the garden and a bit too spicy for fresh eating.

We shared dinner with friends last night and these were on the table. Everyone loved them and the preparation is very simple. Unfortunately, while I was fairly busy with the whole process of having friends over for dinner, I did not snap any photos of the preparation at part of the recipe, but it is simple and I know you can do!

Trim radishes, and cut in half.

In a large bowl, toss radish halves with 2 T olive oil.

Once dinner was done, and the clean up almost completed, it started to rain. Summer evenings will keep you guessing.

Oven Roasted Delicata Squash and Onions

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Roasted Delicata Squash, with onions.

I did not like Delicata squash the first time I cooked it because quite honestly I cooked it with the wrong method. I view this delicate vegetable in the same light as other winter squash. I cut it in half, scraped out the seeds and gave it a roast in the oven. Only to be disappointed, and vowing to not bother with it again.

But I was wrong! For the record, being wrong is completely OK, as long as you correct any errors that were your part. So I did.

Delicata squash is delicious. Mild in flavor, easy to cook (ahem, if you do it correctly...) and completely adaptable. One change I began making many years ago was "Let's eat more vegetables.". And I was serious, serious enough to give my goal a tag on this very blog. And I have spent the time since then trying and enjoying recipes for vegetables of all kinds.

This method will work with just about any other food you are baking in your oven, for the easiest dinner available, giving you time to relax or if need be, get other chores completed while dinner cooks. I baked this along side our main course at 350 degrees, putting it in the oven before the main course so it could take on a caramelized flavor.

Roasting vegetables is very adaptable, with no hard and fast rules. If you are oven sharing once the main dish is cooked, feel free to turn up the oven to 425-degrees and get the caramel action going, so everyone can enjoy dinner together.

Roasted Delicata and Onions
by the seat of my pants
350-degree oven

2 Delicata
1 large Onion
2-3 T oil, olive or avocado
Salt and Pepper
2-3 T sugar
1-2 T Balsamic Vinegar

Cut squash in half, scrape out the seeds, and slice crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.

Cut onion lengthwise into slices, separate.

Drizzle with the oil, and season with salt and pepper. (For me this worked best in a large bowl).

Spread out onto a large baking sheet, sprinkle with the sugar. Bake until tender 1-1/2 hours.

To serve, drizzle with the Balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy!

Onion Gratin

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Onion Gratin
Onion Gratin
If you like onions, you will like this simple and delicious dish. I made this for our Sunday dinner and it was well received by all, even the non-onion lovers. I do have to confess that I got a bit carried away with deleting the images from my camera and this is the only survivor. But it is simple to put together and, honestly, what is done is done!

Onion Gratin
By the seat of my pants
400-degree oven

2 or 3 onions, sliced about 1/2 inch thick, you can ring out or leave in a solid slice
olive oil
dry bread crumbs (1/2-3/4 cup)
Parmesan cheese (the green can is fine for this dish)
salt and pepper


Cover the bottom of a large lidded pan with a thin layer of olive oil. Add onions, then season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with a layer of dry bread crumbs, then the Parmesan cheese. Bake covered for 20 minutes, remove the cover and bake an additional 20-30 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

Note:  The onions will not be completely cooked, they will be crisp-tender.

If you want fully cooked onions, bake for 30 minutes covered, BEFORE adding the dry bread crumbs and cheese.

Serves 6-8

Enjoy!
