I love eating radishes raw, dipped in softened butter and sprinkled with salt. I never tried them roasted though, until a friend started eating fewer carbs and I wanted to help out.

They are surprisingly delicious and full of flavor and a great side dish for spring. Try them; you might be pleasantly surprised!

Ingredient notes

  • Radishes: While they are available year-round, the best radishes arrive in April. These smaller, milder radishes are a treat for spring, and you might be able to find some additional rare varieties to enjoy.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil for easy cleanup. In a large bowl, add radishes, olive oil, garlic powder, dill weed, salt and pepper (I like at least ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper; sometimes I do a little more).

Recipe tips and variations

  • Yield: 3 cups, enough for 6 1/2-cup servings.
  • Storage: Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Add extra roasted radishes to omeletsscrambled eggs, and your meal prep containers.
  • Make ahead: Chop the radishes up to 3 days in advance. Store covered in the refrigerator until you’re ready to roast.
  • Keep things dry: After you rinse your vegetables, pat them dry or allow them to air dry before they go into the oven. More moisture = more steam = less toasty crisp bits.
  • Crowd control: Crowded vegetables create steam which prevents them from getting toasty. The baking sheet surface in contact with the radishes is what gives your roasted vegetables those brown, crunchy bits. Also, flip your veggies halfway through cooking so the other side has a chance to get just as delicious.

Recipe FAQs

If you are someone you love is trying to eat fewer carbs, roasted radishes are a great replacement to potatoes. One cup of radishes contains about 2g net carbs.

Radish greens are edible whether they are raw or cooked. Some radish greens have a fuzzy texture, but it will go away if you cook them.
