taste the rainbow

remember those crazy vegetables I told you that I found?
a watermelon radish and a black radish.

well I sliced them up and roasted them with garlic and basil and olive oil.

honestly, it kind of scared me to slice up a normal-looking veggie and see neon pink inside.
and the black radish turned out solid white on the inside. 
so peculiar, these vegetables.

I roasted them at 450 degrees for an hour or so, until they looked brownish at the ends, and they were yummy.

 you should give them a try!

I imagine you found these at the farmers' market; I have never seen those or heard of them. We don't have them here that I am aware of.
