June's featured veggie is the radical RADISH at Veggie Buds Club! We hope you enjoy this delicious recipe from this month's Veggie Buds Club subscription box.
This recipe was developed by Heather Staller, a mom of two boys, ages 5 and 3, and cooking instructor specializing in bringing cooking into preschool classrooms. After college, Heather knew she wanted to be a teacher, but first followed her lifelong dream of going to culinary school. Teaching cooking combines both of her passions, and she truly enjoys introducing young children to the joys of cooking with fresh ingredients.

Getting kids excited about a new veggie often starts while shopping! Have your child choose which bunch of radishes they’d like to take home from the store or farmer’s market. The crunchy veggie comes in so many wonderful colors and shapes! Roasting radishes dramatically mellows it’s naturally spicy flavor and the little bit of honey in the recipe adds a touch of sweetness that we all love. Enjoy the roasted “coins” as a simple side dish or snack. We also love them as a topping for fancy toast: toast bread then top with mashed avocado (or cream cheese) and the radishes. Yum!
