Roasted potatoes are something we LOVE in this house.
Apparently they’re not gentle enough on blood sugar levels to be eaten abundantly, ahem, note to self.
Instead, we now often make roasted radishes. They’re easy, tasty and perfectly acceptable for those low carb S meals!
At first I was super sceptic – can you even roast radishes? Isn’t that gross? But no, actually. Super tasty, I promise.
How to Roast Radishes:
What radishes do you use for roasting?
Since we have little kids, I try to pick mild radishes. Remember, my daughters think cinnamon is too spicy…
I also like to take large, round ones because they slice up nicely and roast evenly.
Do you peel the radishes before cooking?
Heaven forbid! Or do you really want to stand around, peeling teeny-tiny little radishes? ?
I absolutely never peel the radishes before cooking/roasting. Their skin is perfectly edible, and so pretty in pink!
Do you slice them or can you leave them whole?
I slice the radishes because they roast in less time that way (and I’m fairly quick at cutting them in half, so the slicing doesn’t take up more time than the extra baking).
I also find the sliced sides roast up nicer than radishes left whole, but that’s up to you!
Even if you’re a sceptic like I was… Go on, give yourself a nudge and give these Oven Roasted Radishes a try!
You might just be in for the biggest surprise ?
