Sauteed Radishes with Mint 
Serves 4

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 pound radishes, trimmed and cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch wedges
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons mint, roughly chopped

1. Heat oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium heat. Let butter melt and then cook a bit longer, until it’s a deep golden and beginning to take on a nutty smell, about 2 minutes total.

2. Add radishes to pan and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 minutes, tossing frequently, until radishes are tender and tinged with caramelization in places. Let cool slightly and sprinkle with mint and additional salt to taste.
