The spicy crunch of a raw radish is tamed into a soft, crunchy and slightly sweet addition to green beans in this colorful recipe. Impress friends with the transformative roasted side, ready in about 45 minutes. The color of the radishes gets a little muted but still pops agains the bright green beans. Try the radishes with baby kale for an easy variation. Serve alongside a grilled or roasted flank steak, thinly sliced. A smooth puree of cauliflower rounds out the plate with color and texture.
