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!
