Air Fryer Radishes

Air Fryer Radishes

This is our air fryer radishes recipe. We flavor our roasted radishes with garlic and lemon.

It is truly amazing how the flavor of a radish transforms when it is roasted.

When you roast radishes, their sweet flavor comes out. There is still plenty of that peppery flavor that you expect but it is a lotr more mild. 

Radishes are easily one of my favorite veggies. I tend to eat them raw as a midday snack.

It had never occurred to me to roast them in the oven until recently when I got on a kick of having oven roasted vegetables for lunch.

Why the air fryer?

I love cooking anything that I possibly can in the air fryer. It feels easier to deal with in general. 

Also, I live in Texas and it is hot here a lot. The air fryer doesn’t heat up the house like the oven does.

Another thing that I love about roasting radishes in the air fryer is that it only takes a minute or so for the air fryer to heat up.

Now, I do find cleaning the air fryer slightly annoying. I seem to struggle to get the basket clean but it is still easier than cleaning the oven.

The bottom line

Have you tried roasted radishes before? We’ve had them in a slow cooker stew, where they picked up all the savory beefy flavor like potatoes or turnips would. 

I hope you get a chance to try this, just for the opportunity to experience how different these are when cooked. A bit like how a baked potato tastes NOTHING like a raw potato!

Just have too many radishes? Here’s our favorite way to store them to keep them fresh the longest.
