Nothing says the chill of winter is over quite like fresh radishes, which are super low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals. And adding fresh mint will surely put a spring in your step.
Sauteed Radishes with Mint
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.
