The title perhaps ought to read ‘can a radish really impersonate a potato?’. I mean, raw radishes are anything but potato-y: spicy, bitter, and totally juicy. But when roasted, something magical happens, and the result is actually rather extraordinary. Fact is, this keto roasted radishes are pretty phenomenal.
Still, keep in mind that radishes are still radishes. And a slight trace will linger, but after a nice and (very!) long roast, they really are the closest thing to potatoes we’ve encountered.
So we cannot recommend enough that you give these roasted radishes a shot. Best case scenario you will be one of the lucky peeps to whom radishes totally taste like potatoes. And worst case? You’ll never whip them up again.
But we love them. Repeat, absolutely looove them!
And perhaps one of the most lovable things about radishes is their carb count. We’re talking 1.8g net carbs per 100g serving…! That equates roughly to 0.1g net carbs per medium 1-inch radish. Nuts right?
Be patient and roast them long enough that they’re nice and dry. Radishes have a lot more water weight than potatoes, so they need a little longer in the oven to dry out and crisp up.
We’re talking roughly 45-50 minutes.
Try them at minute 20 to 40, and they’ll still be too radish-like. At least in our humble opinion.
And do not forget a nice and simple seasoning of olive oil, thyme, and salt & pepper to get started. All finished off with a decent dose of Parmigiano Reggiano (i.e. real Parmesan cheese) in the last stretch of the roast.
Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Brush a baking dish or rimmed tray with olive oil. *
Add radishes to prepared baking dish, drizzle with olive oil, thyme, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Roast for 45 minutes, until golden and crisp, tossing them about half way through.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and roast for 5 more minutes. Serve right away.
*Based on your feedback, some of you are roasting them at 450°F/230°C for 45-60 minutes. So you will need to do some fiddling around depending on the size of your radishes and oven. So we suggest you taste them a bit along the way and adjust accordingly. Just note that we do prefer to roast them for longer at a lower temperature for optimal results.
Please note that nutrition facts are estimated for a 25g serving of raw radishes (about 4-5 medium radishes).
