Tender and Sweet Roasted Radishes

Why You’ll Love It:

  • Radishes lose their peppery bite and become slightly sweet.
  • The texture transforms into a tender and almost juicy delight.
  • It’s an easy and low-effort side dish that complements any meal.


  • Radishes (any variety)
  • Olive oil
  • Unsalted butter

  • Salt

  • Fresh herbs (optional)


  1. Prep: Trim the radishes and cut them in half or quarters.
  2. Season: Toss the radishes with olive oil, melted butter, salt, and pepper.
  3. Arrange: Spread the radishes on a parchment-lined baking sheet, cut side down.
  4. Roast: Bake at 425°F for 20-25 minutes, or until tender and translucent.
  5. Finish:

    Drizzle with honey butter (optional) and garnish with flaky salt and herbs.

Serving Suggestions:

  • As a low-carb alternative to potatoes with meat dishes
  • With grilled fish or air-fried salmon
  • In creamy polenta or risotto
  • Added to roasted vegetable salads


  • Use similar-sized radishes for even cooking.
