Low-Carb Roasted Garlic Radishes
- 12 oz radishes, trimmed & cut into wedges (about 2 ⅓ cup wedges)

- 1 bulb of garlic cloves
- ¼-½ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 Tablespoon hemp seeds

- Wash radishes and slice off both ends. Cut radishes in half or into quarters, depending on their size (aim to keep them all about the same size for better roasting).
- To a mixing bowl, add in radishes, peeled garlic cloves, oil, salt, and cayenne pepper. Toss to coat evenly. Spread on a baking sheet and roast in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until desired doneness, turning hallway through. A few minutes before the radishes are done, sprinkle on 1 tablespoon of hemp seeds and pop back into oven for two minutes.
- Serve hot as a side dish and enjoy!
