Although it seems like the temperatures are never going to get above zero, and the green grass will never be seen again, Spring is approaching! This past week we all experienced a little bit of Spring whether you knew it or not. The Bailey GREENhouse and Urban Farm seeded their first set of radishes for the year. Radishes commonly have a bad reputation for their tang and spice, but they have many health benefits including being a high source of vitamin C and a sore throat soother. In honor of these cute little guys, I have found a unique and different recipe that may make the biggest radish hater say, “yum!” By combining sweet with spice, these radish chips are guaranteed to make you crave more. Don’t fear what you have heard, they taste as good as they look!

CINNAMON SUGAR RADISH CHIPS

Serves: 2-3

 INGREDIENTS

  • 10-15 radishes
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • ½ tbs. honey
  • 1-2 tbs. cinnamon sugar mixture

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Slice the radishes approximately ¼ inch thick and put them in a microwave safe bowl. When you are done slicing, microwave for about 30 seconds to soften them up. Drain any liquid, and add them to a larger bowl.
  2. Add the olive oil, honey, and cinnamon sugar. Mix well to coat all of the radishes. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure they are evenly spread out and not stacked on top of each other.
  3. Cook for 15 minutes at 350, then remove the radishes and flip them over. Reduce oven temperature to 225 and bake for another 20 minutes. You will notice they will begin to shrink in size and crisp up, which is a good thing! Remove from the oven, plate and serve.
