I used English cucumbers but you can use regular or Persian cucumbers as well. Persian cucumbers would be best as they are less watery than regular cucumbers. You’d need about 8 Persian cucumbers and 2-3 regular cucumbers if you were going to substitute.

Here’s a little shortcut, use kitchen shears to chop fresh herbs. I started using them to chop up my son’s food into bite size pieces so that he could eat without choking. It was so easy that I started looking around the kitchen to see what else I could cut up and settled on herbs. It’s so nice to be able to just grab a bunch of dill and start cutting. I use Kitchen-Buddy kitchen shears from Amazon. They are very sharp which is perfect. The only downside is that they don’t come apart to wash and don’t go in the dishwasher. I usually only use these shears for cutting herbs so that’s not much of an issue. However, they are heavy duty and could handle much bigger jobs.

Oven Roasted Radishes

This Oven Roasted Radishes recipe takes advantage of the fresh produce from your garden. After roasting the radishes, they have an almost sweet taste that’s completely different from the sharper raw flavor. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, seafood, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the autoimmune protocol, paleo and vegan diets.

Raw radishes have a sharp, almost spicy flavor. Until recently, I hadn’t considered doing anything with radishes beyond eating them raw or pickling them. This Oven Roasted Radishes recipe completely transforms from spicy to sweet. It’s a completely different flavor and absolutely delicious.

My father loves to nibble on raw radishes when I was growing up so they were always around. My dad used to sneak them into salads but I never really enjoyed the strong and spicy flavor. When I started the AIP diet, I realized that if I’m going to exclude so many foods from my diet, I needed to add in some new veggies. Radishes were one of those veggies I wanted to incorporate into my diet. I really wanted to love them but eating them raw just wasn’t an option so I tried braising them. I loved them braised but it required more attention than I was willing to give. It’s hard to watch the stove while watching your toddler. Then I tried roasting them and it was just so much easier. It’s one of those no fuss recipes that are totally satisfying.

I used lard in this recipe but you could definitely use an oil of your choice. I used it because lard adds another flavor to the dish. It’s almost buttery. I liked the subtle flavor but it would still taste good if you use a more neutral oil like avocado or olive oil.
