Parmesan Roasted ‘Potatoes’ i.e. Radishes ๐Ÿง€ gluten free & keto


  1. Cindy says:

    How on earth do these taste like potatoes and how did it take me so long to find out? Been living low carb for 2 years now & was missing potatoes. Found this recipe on Pinterest and gave it a try. Turned out fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Kathleen says:

    I peeled and cut daikon radish into large bite sized chunks (They looked just like potatoes). To me, daikon radish are milder. Also, I did not have a lot of time to roast. I microwaved to slightly tenderize the radish. I drained them, spread them on a cookie sheet, added olive oil, salt and thyme and then broiled the radish chunks till brown and tender. When ready to serve, I sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Oh my, these mock potatoes were scrumptious!!!! Definitely going to make this recipe again and again! Thank you for a fun, easy, delicious, family favorite side dish.

    Can you roast these lower but longer? I have something else to bake at same time and has to be at 350

  4. Angie Hartuian says:

    Wondering if this recipe can be made a day in advance or if best eaten straight away. Thank you so much.

    • Paola says:

      I’ve found they’re surprisingly good the day after too (but think more cold salad, radish-like). IF you want them as more potato-like I would do fresh and warm xo!

  5. Karen Carroll says:

    I liked the flavor and texture of the radishes but thought the thyme was way too strong. I used 1 1/2 tsp. dried thyme. Next time I’ll try rosemary and garlic as another comment suggested.

  6. Stephen Simone says:

    Tried these tonight, and they are astoundingly good!
    Gonna try adding rosemary and garlic when I stir halfway through roasting.
    New to Keto, and was already mourning the loss of my beloved roasted fingerling potatoes.
    These will take their place quite nicely.
    Thank you so much. Love your site!

    • Paola says:

      That’s great to hear Stephen, happy you loved them! You should also check out the hash browns with radishes, they’re awesome too (even more potato-like!). xo and thank you for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Kate says:

    I was pretty scared at the thought of anything radish, I’ve never been a fan! I tried peeling them first, hoping to help get rid of some of that radish-taste, eww! I’ve learned like you that low n slow is the way to go! I was stunned at how good they were…with no radishness at all ๐Ÿ™‚ Think I’ll try them unpeeled with your recipe, those little guys weren’t easy to peel at all!

    Thank you for sharing all your hard work, you’ve made low carb not only tolerable, but DELICIOUS! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Paola says:

      Kate it’s my absolute pleasure! And surely do try them with the skins one, they add a bunch of flavor and crispness once roasted! xo!

  8. Tanya George says:

    Wow!! First time I have ever bought radish, I tried them raw and wasn’t too sure then I found your recipe and now I am hooked. ๐Ÿ˜‹. Hoping I can convince the children. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Hollie says:

    I just wanted to say that I’ve made these twice now and I absolutely love them! I’ve never been a fan of radishes, but roasting them takes away everything that I didn’t like about them. Their so good that my 11-year-old son devours them! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with my family!

    • Paola says:

      That’s so awesome Hollie so happy you’re enjoying them so much! And yup, they definitely turn into a completely different veggie when roasted! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo!!

  10. Rayan says:

    I had never cooked with radishes before, but I had been really missing eating potatoes. This recipe is fantastic. I was able to have “potatoes” with my roast beef. Almost like I wasn’t on keto at all.

  11. Amber says:

    These were delish! Followed recipe exactly and they were perfect. Only thing Iโ€™d suggest is noting that they cook way down so you have to start with more than you think youโ€™ll need. Thank you!

  12. Terri says:

    I was very skeptical. I don’t like raw radishes and neither does my husband. We both LOVED them!! He even asked for seconds!

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. 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

  16. stace says:

    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
