Roasted Radishes

If you’re tired of the same old roasted vegetables, it’s time to try something new! Radishes aren’t a vegetable I typically think of outside of their place in crudités, or shaved on tacos, but they deserve more of a chance!

Raw radishes have that spicy flavor that they are known for, but roasting radishes brings out their natural sweetness to their peppery taste and adds a depth of flavor that will surprise you! The texture after roasting them are perfectly tender with a slight crisp around the edges that will make you want to go back for more.

Delicious roasted radishes are a perfect side dish on their own to complement a main meal, or even as a topping on a salad! If you’re not a typical radish fan, I think this may surprise you!

You can even use the radish greens in a recipe to go with your meal! Try out this Radish Green Pesto that’d go great on top!

Regular paprika can be used if you don’t have smoked paprika, but you may miss out on the subtle smoky flavor. The great part about the seasoning mix is that you can make it whatever you need to go with your meal! Add in some Italian Seasoning for more herbaceous flavor, or onion powder to punch up the flavor.

Add a squeeze of lemon juice after they’re done cooking to brighten up the flavor!

Can I prepare the radishes in advance?

While roasted radishes are best enjoyed fresh and hot out of the oven, you can prepare the seasoning mixture and cut the radishes in advance to save time when you’re ready to roast them.

How should I serve roasted radishes?

Serve them as a delicious side dish to accompany some Grilled Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs or pork tenderloin! Add some extra vegetable side dishes to your meal with Air Fryer Broccoli or Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Carrots.
