These Easter Egg #Radishes are looking lovely fresh out of the ground, but we think they'll look even lovelier incorporated into this recipe:⠀

- Place radishes in a casserole dish⠀
- Cover with a mixture of 4 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp butter⠀
- Roast at 400 degrees for around 15-30 minutes, until tender⠀
- Sprinkle with preferred seasonings, but we recommend a little lemon zest, salt and pepper!⠀

We don't know about you, but our mouths are watering already... 😋
