I am excited to share with you my favorite baked roasted radishes recipe! Not only are these baked radishes loaded with yummy flavors, but they are also really simple to make. Once you learn how to roast radishes, don’t be surprised if they get added to your weekly rotation.
What Are Radishes?
Radishes are root vegetables in the cabbage family, also related to kale, broccoli and cauliflower. They can be red, white, green, purple, or even pink. They offer a spicy flavor that is naturally sweet, and are more mild when cooked.
This roasted radishes recipe is my favorite way to enjoy them.
Do Roasted Radishes Taste Like Potatoes?
What do roasted radishes taste like? Sort of like potatoes, but of course not exactly.
The texture of baked radishes is very similar to a potato. Roasting them neutralizes the sharp bite that raw ones have, so you can often use them as a low carb potato replacement.
Besides, the comfort food factor of crispy roasted radishes totally reminds me of potatoes! If you make them right, they get the same crispy exterior and soft inside. And if you brown them well, they just might become one of your new favorite paleo side dish recipes.
How To Roast Radishes
The process for how to roast radishes needs just five ingredients and a few minutes prep time. This no-fuss roasted radishes recipe requires minimal effort, and the result is perfectly crispy comfort food!
Here’s how to make roasted radishes:
1. How To Prepare Roasted Radishes
Before roasting radishes, wash and trim them. After washing, cut off the roots and the greens on top.
TIP: You can save the radish greens and use them in a different recipe, or add them to a garden salad. Radish greens would work in any recipe that calls for leafy green vegetables.
2. How To Season Roasted Radishes
Seasoning radishes for roasting is super simple. I use sea salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.
Mix all of your seasonings in a bowl, then toss the cut radishes in olive oil and the seasoning mixture.
3. How To Cook Roasted Radishes
Next, spread the radishes on a baking sheet.
TIP: It’s important to have the radishes in a single layer, which allows them to brown well!
Place them into the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of your radishes, turning halfway through.
TIP: Pierce roasted radishes with a fork to check the desired doneness. It should go in with virtually no resistance. Roasted radishes are done when they are soft inside, like potatoes.
Once they are finished cooking, sprinkle them with some extra salt.
Variations For Roasted Radishes
This roasted radishes recipe is fantastic as it is, but if it becomes a household favorite, you might be looking for some additional ideas to change it up once in a while.
Here are a few ideas for add-ins to roast with radishes:
- Onions – Add some cut red or yellow onions, then season and bake with radishes.
- Fennel seeds – They add a subtle sweet flavor.
- Garlic – It will resemble the flavor of garlic potatoes.
- Rosemary – Adds a great earthy flavor and delicious depth to the dish.
Are Roasted Radishes Healthy?
Yes, roasted radishes are healthy. Radishes are full of vitamins A, B6, C, E, and K, as well as potassium, fiber, antioxidants, magnesium, copper, and iron.
Plus, radishes are naturally low carb, gluten-free, and of course, paleo friendly veggies!
How Do You Store Roasted Radishes?
You can store leftover roasted radishes in the fridge for 3-5 days. Give them a light stir fry to liven them up before serving.
Can You Freeze Roasted Radishes?
Yes, you can freeze roasted radishes.
You can freeze leftovers, but if you’re making them to freeze, my preferred method of freezing roasted radishes is to just partially roast them before freezing. This stops some of the enzyme activity that tends to alter the texture of frozen vegetables over time. Then, you can just roast from frozen until they are done afterward.
NOTE: Roasted radishes that have been previously frozen won’t get as crisp as fresh ones.
