Oven Roasted Radishes

The first garden crop to enjoy each spring is the humble radish. Whether you grow your own, stop by a farmer's market, or the produce counter, I urge you to make this delicious side dish!


If someone had told me that I would love roasted radishes, I would have said, "are you kidding?" 

Actually, I have never and I do mean never been a fan of any large radish. They are hot or spicy and often overpower any salad or sandwich they are put on or into. And then I ran across this recipe for Oven Roasted Radishes. 

But I should back up a bit, this is the second recipe I have made that has the cook, roast those little red guys. The first recipe was a roasted radish and carrot salad, which we loved! Vegetable salads, especially roasted vegetable salads are on my radar right now. What a delicious way to get more vegetables onto your table and hopefully into your family at mealtime!  

Simple recipes are often the best ones!

In my traipse through Pinterest looking for more radish recipes, I also came across this one for a simple roasted radish side dish. Oven Roasted Radishes are not only delicious, but also very easy to prepare. Plus this recipe actually tames those large radishes that do have a bit of a bite to them, making them the star of the show.

The first time I made these we had invited another couple over to share dinner with us, one summer evening. Now I know most cooks do not make a new recipe when they have guests coming over. Instead offering tried and true favorites for a successful meal. But I have been a new recipe with guests coming over rebel for a few decades now and as always it was fun seeing how much this dish was enjoyed. Turns out, everyone loved them! Even me...


And the preparation is very simple. 

Unfortunately, while I was fairly busy with the whole process of having friends over for dinner, I did not snap any photos of the preparation. But in fact it is so simple you don't really need photos. And while it is a long way off to summer, it turns out radishes are one of the first crops to come out of a garden, yours or your local farmers market. When they do, I hope you give these a try, they really are good!


Some additional thoughts on this recipe:

If the radishes are one bite in size, you may leave whole. 

If the bunch contains large and small radishes, only cut the large ones in half. 

Don't throw out the tops, save them and make a batch of Radish Top Pesto, you can thank me later!

  • pepper

  1. I've never been a radish fan either, but it seems like roasting them would mellow them out a bit.

  3. Must admit I've never dreamed of oven roasted radishes, although I love the bite I get from eating fresh radishes. Will try this dish. At What's for Dinner Sunday so hope you'll check my posts out as well. Nancy Andres @ Colors 4 Health.

  5. I do not like radishes.
    Are you saying that when you roast them they are no longer spicy? I may be willing if that were the case. You’ve got me curious. We grow them but I don’t eat them!

    Thanks for sharing a new idea at the Homestead Blog Hop 436!

    I may be willing to try it.
