Roasted Radishes with Curry Dip


    Roasting radishes creates a whole new vegetable as it tames their spiciness and transforms them into nuggets full of mellow sweetness. The radishes are also excellent when tossed with herb mixtures such as herbes de Provence or za’atar before roasting.


    1 lb (450 g) radishes, trimmed and halved
    2 tsp (10 mL) grapeseed oil
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
    1/2 cup (125 mL) plain yogurt or sour cream
    1 tsp (5 mL) curry powder
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice

    Preheat oven to 400 F (200C).

    Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss radishes with oil, salt, and pepper. Place in oven and bake for 35 minutes, stirring once halfway, or until wrinkled and tender.

    In small bowl, whisk together sour cream, curry powder, and lemon juice.

    Serve roasted radishes with curry sauce.

    You might think of protein as something you mainly get from a meal and, therefore, not a component of dessert. But, if you’re going to opt for dessert from time to time, why not consider working in ingredients that go big on this important macronutrient? It’s easier (and more delicious) than you may think! Protein is an essential part of every cell in your body and plays a starring role in bone, muscle, and skin health. So, certainly, you want to make sure you’re eating enough. And it’s best to spread protein intake throughout the day, since your body needs a continual supply. This is why it can be a great idea to try to include protein in your desserts. When protein is provided in sufficient amounts in a dessert, it may help you feel more satiated and help temper blood sugar swings. Plus, in many cases, that protein comes in a package of other nutritional benefits. For instance, if you’re eating a dessert made with protein-packed Greek yogurt, you’re not just getting protein; you’re getting all the yogurt’s bone-benefitting calcium and immune-boosting probiotics, too. Adding nuts to your dessert doesn’t just provide plant-based protein, but it also provides heart-healthy fats. Yes, desserts need not be just empty calories. Ready for a treat? These protein-filled desserts with a healthy twist are dietitian-approved—and delicious.
