Roasted Asparagus and Radishes with Garlic

I absolutely love roasting my veggies, it makes them super crispy and draws out a delicious natural sweetness from them. This is the first time I experiment with roasting radishes and I must say I really did enjoy their flavor, I hope you do too!

Health Tip: Radishes are packed with loads of vitamin C which helps build up your body’s natural immunity, they are also a low calorie food; about 1/2 a cup of sliced radishes contains only 9 calories, so snack away!

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of asparagus chopped
  • 5 radishes sliced
