Roasted Radish Flatbread with Ricotta and Honey

Print Friendly

I just discovered my new favorite lunch of all time.

Or breakfast if you put a fried egg on top!

Orrrr dinner if you add some thinly sliced steak on top!

Orrrrrrrr dessert if you put a scoop of chocolate fudge ice cream on top!

Oh I’m just kidding, you guyyyyzzzzz.

There would be at least two scoops.

Aren’t radishes darling? They’re like crunchy little potent peppery root bombs of Earthy delight.

When the movie Julie and Julia came out a zillion years ago, I bought a bottle of wine, a bag of radishes and a stick of butter, and I plopped right on down in front of the TV set, pressed play, and I dipped each radish into the softened butter, then sprinkled each little bite with fleur de sel (because I’m a troll and had to be authentic), and I shoved bite after bite into my head, drank that entire bottle of wine, all by myself, on my couch, at like one o’clock in the afternoon.

And for the first time, I felt like I was a part of something. Something bigger. Something I could be proud of. Something I could call my own.

Oh no, wait. That was just the wine.

Remember when Jenny and Teri posted roasted radishes a little while back? And remember when you were like, “deeeeeeuuuuummmmm, Gina?”  Me, too.

Well, it got my noggin’ crankin’, so I decided to create a cute little lunch with ze radishes all roasted up super sexy-like, then placed on a nice spread of ricotta cheese, on a whole grain flatbread, drizzled with luscious honey, and garnished with some microgreens that my husband literally grew at his desk at work. (don’t ask.)

Dudes.

Everything. It all works. I hate it. The radishes are soft and sweet, but still have a deeeeelicate heeeeeeent of pepper glory. I left the ricotta plain, but you could easily whip in some roasted garlic and fresh herbs. Orrrrrrr some chocolate chips for your dessert version!

YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT IT.

And the honey? Child.

Get in that.

Roasted Radish Flatbread with Ricotta and Honey:

What it took for 2 flatbreads:

* 2 cups radishes, cut in half lengthwise
* 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
* 2 whole grain flatbreads (or flavor of your choice!)
* (about) 1 cup ricotta cheese
* 2 to 4 Tbs. honey
* microgreens for garnish
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat your oven to 400.

Arrange the radishes on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle 1 Tbs. oil over the radishes and season with a little salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes, until they start to brown on the edges and are tender, tossing half way through.

Brush the remaining oil over each flatbread. Then spread that ricotta over everything. Sprinkle the radishes on top of the ricotta. Slide back into the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until the flatbread is crispy on the edges.

Drizzle the honey over the flatbreads and garnish with microgreens! (or whatever you have on hand)

    This is seriously one of the most beautiful dishes I have seen in a long time. I saw it on instagram a few days ago and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since!

    Bev, I love this recipe so much!!! Especially the honey drizzled on top, what an excellent addition! You’ve given a whole new meaning to eating radishes!

    I want this nowwwwwwww. Radishes are one of my favorite things ever.

    And I died laughing about J&J because my mama and I did the same thing while watching it! With the radishes and butter. We were missing the wine…. WHY?!?!

    I’m in love with radishes this week! I’m so happy about this roasting business.

  20. Rosie @ Blueberry Kitchen May 25, 2013 at 5:47 pm #

    This is such a perfect looking lunch! All the flavour combinations in this sound amazing!

  21. Nutmeg Nanny May 27, 2013 at 2:16 pm #

    This looks so pretty and fresh! I love this :)

  22. Sarah Rose May 29, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    Made this last night, using a whole grain tortilla as the “crust”–two thumbs up!!! What a great combination of flavors. To save time, I think I will pre-roast the radishes in the future. If the radishes are ready to go, this would come together in a flash.

    Just discovered roasted radishes myself. Divine. Now those hot little buggers are enjoyable! I’m linking this recipe in my post tomorrow. I would love to try it. Lovely to find your blog.

  24. Sarah @ Well Dined July 26, 2013 at 7:00 am #

    Oh Bev, this is lovely! As you can see in my pingback (and my shoutout on instagram), I added a few ingredients (prosciutto and asparagus puree). I just loved this – the perfect end to Spring! I used homemade ricotta, which is like my favorite thing, it is so rich and creamy!

  25. Lauren September 22, 2014 at 11:49 am #

    I know you posted this so long ago but I just came across it. Where can you find already-made flatbreads? Or did you make them? Thinking of serving this as an hors d’eouvre at a dinner party but wanted something simple. This seems to fit the bill nicely – unless I have to make a fresh flatbread. :)

    [...] My friend Amy, always one to serve a beautiful meal, told me during a recent visit that she roasts radishes. This was good news. I love radish greens but the bulbs have too much sting for me. Roasting them takes out the bite and transforms the flavor. Now that I know this, I’ll actually eat radishes instead of stockpiling our CSA bunches in the fridge. Next I’ll try this flatbread. [...]
