I’m pretty much in love with roasted radishes. They mellow out, soften, lose some of their heat and get a bit sweet when roasted. When I started coming up with farro recipes (see them all in our Farro Series here) it seemed natural to me to try roasted radishes and farro together. I added basil and feta as well. It’s a really delicious combination that I’ve made again and again.

Farro and Roasted Radish Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch radishes (about 12), trimmed and quartered
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 tsp. salt, divided
  • 2 cups cooked farro (learn how to cook it here)
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 oz. feta cheese
  • 5 large fresh basil leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Put the radishes in a 9x13" cake pan and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Roast until undersides are browned and radishes are tender, 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the radishes with the farro, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and black pepper. Top with feta and tear basil leaves over top.
