How to roast radishes

Roasting radishes is very simple, and this easy recipe is the perfect intro if you haven’t tried it before! It’s really as easy as 1,2,3:

  1. Clean and cut the radishes in half (try to get them into even sized pieces)
  2. Toss them with some cooking fat
  3. Sprinkle with seasonings and roast

How to prep the radishes

One of our main tips for prepping these roasted radishes is this – don’t throw out the greens! When you cut off the greens from the radishes, you can save them for use in a different recipe. Just wash them, pat dry and wrap in a paper towel for storage in the refrigerator. You can use radish greens in place of other leafy green vegetables in salads or other recipes.

How do I know when the radishes are done?

The best way to tell if radishes are fully cooked is to stick a fork in them! A fork should slide in easily, without much resistance. If the radishes feel hard and the fork won’t go in easily, cook them a little longer. Radishes cook similar to potatoes, so you are looking for them to be soft but not mushy or burnt.

Variations on this roasted radishes recipe

We liked the depth of flavor created by the smoked paprika and rosemary in this recipe. However, if you want some variety, you could completely switch the seasonings around to create some different flavors.

Some ideas:

  • Extra savory – add some diced onions and garlic to this recipe
  • Italian – use some italian seasoning and a squeeze of lemon juice after roasting
  • Mexican – toss with some chili powder and cumin
  • Cheesy – top with some grated cheese if you eat dairy (or some nutritional yeast for strict Paleo + Whole30 compliance)
