Radishes. They aren’t really my favorite vegetable. Yet I seem to be finding myself with a lot of them lately. So I was determined to figure out something acceptable to do with them.

I asked around at one of my local farmers markets and somebody suggested roasting. I had never heard of roasted radishes, but it seemed like a good idea. Because what vegetable doesn’t benefit from a little olive oil, salt, pepper and high heat.

So I gave it a go and now I’m happy to announce that I’ve changed my opinion of radishes!

Roasted radishes are still somewhat earthy and assertive. But the majority of the spicy-ness gets mellowed out. They make a great visually appealing side dish. Or you can use them as a salad topping. I definitely recommend trying method out next time you find yourself with an abundance of radishes!



Roasted Radishes

Serves 2-4

Roasted Radishes


  • 1 bunch radishes (about 6-8 radishes)
  • About 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 lemon wedge


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Trim the greens from the radishes. You can leave the roots attached, if desired. Wash the radishes and cut them in half lengthwise. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and toss with the olive oil until lightly coated. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
  3. Transfer to your pre-heated oven and roast for 15 minutes. Using a pair of tongs, flip the radishes. Then continue roasting them for another 5-10 minutes, or until the radishes are tender and slightly browned.
  4. Remove from the oven. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice over the radishes. Serve immediately.


  • Dear Liz, I am not usually one for blogs and recipes but I love your sight!! Thanks for sharing all these great recipes. I run a CSA with 2 other women and our members are always looking for good recipes, radishes included! One radish recipe I found was for radish chips. Basically made the same way as kale chips. I have not tried them yet. I am enjoying having Raine here to help me put up all the food I grow. Best, Cindy


    • Thanks, Cindy. So glad you like the site. And good to hear you are enjoying time with your daughter! I haven’t tried radish chips – sounds interesting. Every recipe that I’ve made that has included an ingredient from my CSA I’ve tagged with the search term “CSA”. So if you type “CSA” into the search box at the upper right, you’ll find all those recipes. It might be helpful for you with your CSA. Enjoy!
