Parmesan Keto Roasted Radishes ๐Ÿง€

i.e. ‘Potatoes’

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, absolutelyย 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?

The Trick

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.

Oh, and don’t forget that you can always add radishes along with your keto roasted chicken. Truly ideal.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches small to medium radishes (about 20) trimmed and halved or sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons thyme fresh or dried
  • flakey sea salt to taste
  • black pepper freshly ground to taste
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ยฐF/200ยฐC. Brush a baking dish or rimmed tray with olive oil. *

  2. 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. 

  3. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and roast for 5 more minutes. Serve right away. 

Recipe Notes

*Based on your feedback, some of you are roasting them at 450ยฐF/230ยฐC 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.ย 

Please note that nutrition facts are estimated for a 25g serving of raw radishes (about 4-5 medium radishes).ย

    I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it was most deifnitely not this!! HOW ON EARTH do they taste like potatoes?!! THANK YOU! I’ll be adding them to the thanksgiving menu ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Paola says:

      hahaha…! YUP! The same thing happened to me the first time I tried them!

      Fairly magical ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo Paola

  2. tried this recipe today. I was very skeptical about roasted radishes because all my life I ate them raw in salads or just like a snack.
    I was very pleasantly surprised how delicious they were roasted.

    The only thing I think 45 minutes made them way overcooked. Next time I will do 25 min so I have some crunch left.

    • Paola says:

      Hi Angela! I get you, I was also VERY skeptical about roasting them! But glad you also liked them!

      And thank you for the feedback on the time! I have heard quite a bit of different feedback about this from readers (one said should be 1 hour 30!!). So maybe it should read roast to taste?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thanks for getting back! xo! Paola

  3. Karla says:

    I’m intrigued by this, thank you for the recipe! Has anyone tried them without the Parmesan? I’m wondering if that is a “key” ingredient to making them taste so good?

    • Paola says:

      Hi Karla! I’ve made them several ways, with and without Parmesan, and I think the trick actually lies in how you cook them! Want to get them nice and crisp here!

  4. Nicole says:

    For years I have been sautรฉing my radishes with water, pat of butter, and chicken bouillon. I cook them until soft and caramelized. Yummy. They are requested by my family for all holidays (and they were skeptical about cooked radishes until they tried them). I can’t wait to try roasting them!
