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 from the first bite! They are a great root vegetable side dish for spring, or a colorful addition to a salad. They’re gluten-free, vegan and paleo friendly! 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 raw 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) and toss until coated.

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 omelets, scrambled eggs, and your meal prep containers.
  • Make ahead: Chop the radishes up to 3 days in advance. Store covered in an airtight container 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.
  • Make them your own: Try adding lemon juice or fresh herbs for a different flavor.
  • 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.
