{ Roasted Radish & Asparagus Polenta } 

I am seeing roasted radishes everywhere lately! When I saw this post, I knew I HAD to try them! What better way to welcome Spring and celebrate than make a big bowl of YUM! Happy Spring! Happy Meatless Monday! Happy Meatless March!

Here’s a recipe for polenta topped with roasted radishes and asparagus in a jalapeño citrus herb vinaigrette.

{ ingredients }

  • Polenta (follow your favorite recipe – I made a classic version with corn meal, veggie broth, water and butter)
  • 2 cups of radishes, cleaned and quartered
  • 1 cup of asparagus, cleaned and chopped
  • 3 Tbs. Olive oil (I used Tuscan Herb)
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed and diced
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 4 basil leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

{ directions } 

  1. Prepare polenta. While it simmers, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix radishes with 1 Tbs. of oil and salt and pepper. Pour radishes onto baking sheet.
  3. Mix asparagus with 1 Tbs. of oil and salt and pepper. Pour asparagus onto baking sheet or into baking dish.
  4. Roast radishes and asparagus in over for 15-18 minutes, unt lightly browned.
  5. While veggies roast, mix lemon juice, jalapeño, basil, salt and pepper, and the last Tbs. of oil in a small container. Mix well and set aside.
  6. Serve polenta topped with asparagus and radishes. Drizzle jalapeño lemon herb vinaigrette and add extra salt and pepper to taste.
