Roasted Radishes


I tried something new for us.  Roasted Radishes.  I love radishes, but Michael doesn’t really care for them.  I have always eaten them raw and usually with a salad. I love their crunchiness and the peppery flavor that they have.  I have been trying different roasted vegetables and I am loving them.

I put a cookie sheet into the oven and turned the oven on to about 425 to 450°.   I bought a couple of bunches of organic radishes with the greens still attached.  I cut off the greens and the root tip on the other end.  My chickens will get these.  I then washed them really well and let them drain in the sink for a little bit.  Then I put them in a bowl.

I melted a little bit of expeller pressed coconut oil. Just a little to drizzle over them. I then salted them with Himalayan Pink salt and black pepper.  You can add a little bit of rosemary or thyme as well.  Whatever you might put on roasted red potatoes.  I tossed them in the bowl to make sure they all got a little oil on them.

I then stirred them all around and tried to make them all turn over. I put them in for another 4 minutes. I did this 3 times. They ended up being in there about 16 to 18 mins. These were fairly large radishes.  They were REALLY GOOD!!!  Even Michael liked them and said he would like to have them again. They almost tasted like roasted potatoes.  You would not know you were eating a radish.  The next time I might try putting a little tiny bit of olive oil on them when they come out of the oven, or even a little bit of butter.

  1. we 1/4 them and saute in butter, yummy! 🙂 did you know, Ben Franklin’s favorite dish was hot buttered radishes 🙂

  2. Did you know you can eat the radish leaves, also? I’ve been experimenting with this the last couple of years. It takes a little getting used to however when I blend them into smoothies I don’t notice any difference from other greens.

  3. I learned that radishes can be cooked a couple of years ago, and I really like them that way now! My family doesn’t care much for them, but if they are cooked they eat them without really noticing. I’ll have to try roasting them next time!

  4. Our family favorite is roasted pork bites with butternut squash, potatoes, zucchini, onions and red bell pepper.

    We cut everything into bite sized pieces put in a large pot and drizzle olive oil and assorted seasonings on them then put in 2 large cookie sheets then we dot with a little bit of butter, drizzle honey and sprinkle brown sugar cover with aluminum foil for 30 mins @ 350 degrees and then uncover and cook another 15 mins uncovered @ 400 degrees, YUMMY!
