This picture sucks, but I believe those are kayakers in the water – right near the pier.
I’m taking it as a bizarre statement of the times we live in that a: the fact that they’re within spitting distance of a State government building made me nervous, and b: I immediately wondered if it would be appropriate to say something since I was seeing something out of the ordinary, despite the fact that there were FDNY people out and about near their own boats.
Sent a pic to the DH instead.
Radishes + butter is not a new concept, but I couldn’t help mess with the idea a bit – especially after viewing a scroll-through Facebook video for something called Cowboy Butter. Cowboy Butter sounded enchanting, but required too many ingredients. So, I got to researching, combining, and playing around a bit and I think I hit on something fantabulous here. This sauce is great with roasted veggies, steaks, burgers & zoodles … pretty much everything.

Roasted Radishes with Gold Sauce
1/2 lb. radishes
Oil for roasting
2 Tbsp. unsalted grass fed butter
2 tsp. whole grain mustard (my favorite is Maille)
1 tsp. honey
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce (watch your labels!)
2 tsp. Texas Pete or other tomatoey hot sauce
2 Tbsp. chopped chives
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 400F. Chop your radishes into about 1/2 inch segments and toss in a Tablespoon or so of your favorite roasting fat. Sprinkle with salt & pepper and spread out on a baking sheet. Roast at 400 for 20 – 25 minutes or until beginning to brown.
While your radishes are working, make your sauce by melting the butter in a small pan over low heat. Whisk in the rest of the ingredients (minus the fresh herbs) until combined.
When the sauce is combined, throw in the herbs plus a couple pinches salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning.
Serve drizzled over the radishes. Also great with meats – really pretty much anything; I’m loving it with eggs, and may even attempt to thin it out to make a salad dressing.
Serves 2 – 4
