Oven-roasted radishes are an uncommon but yummy way to prep and serve radishes.
Roasting radishes brings out their sweet flavor and mellows that peppery bite a bit. Now radishes have easily become one of my favorite vegetables.
I snack on them daily. I like to slice them thin, sprinkle them with salt and lime. This and wasabi peas are my favorite snacks of all time.
This is also why I needed to learn how to best store radishes.
If you have been skipping past those fresh radishes in the produce section because you didn’t quite know what to do with them, then you are in for a real treat today.
Why love roasted radishes?
- They are beautiful when served. Let’s face it well-plated food just taste better. Eating is a visual experience as much as it is a taste experience. Roasted red radishes just add a bit of beautiful flair to the plate.
- Radishes are cheap and you can find them in most produce sections year around.
- Roasted radishes will be unexpected. For some reason, this isn’t as popular as a side dish as roasted asparagus.
- Roasting radishes is quick and easy to do. It only involves a few common ingredients. Once you prep it, you can throw the pan in the oven for 30 minutes and work on the rest of your meal.
- Roasting the radishes creates a milder flavor and pulls out that peppery bite that people often get surprised with when eating a radish.

How to roast radishes
When I roast radishes in the oven, this is how I do it. I wash and dry them thoroughly. Then I slice each end off and cut them in half.
If they are large radishes I may even cut them into four pieces.
Then I toss them with olive oil, minced garlic, lemon zest, rosemary and salt and pepper. Then I line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
Then spread the radishes out on the pan and allow as much space between them as possible.
I pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees. When the oven is ready, I roast them for about 30 minutes. Note to stir the radishes at the 15-minute mark.
When I pull them out of the oven, I sprinkle them with a bit of salt and serve them while hot.
