Juicy, Nutritious Oven-Roasted Radishes
This oven-roasted radish recipe is an absolute GAME CHANGER and my favourite way to enjoy this nutritious spring vegetable. A helpful breakdown of radish nutrition is included for your benefit, together with a recipe for cooking those leftover radish greens!
I’ll be totally honest with you — I’m not a huge fan of raw radishes. I find the raw ones a little bit too peppery and bitter for my taste.
Roasted radishes, on the other hand, taste like an entirely new vegetable. They’re sweet, juicy, and absolutely delicious!
The first time I made oven-roasted radishes was a couple years ago while visiting my dad in Switzerland.
He had bought a bunch of radishes, and they were sitting on the kitchen counter untouched. I decided to try roasting them one evening and both of us couldn’t get over how good they tasted!
We loved them so much that I made them multiple times during my visit, and even wrote down the recipe for my dad.
If you’re someone who doesn’t love the taste of raw radishes (or you’re simply curious to try a new way of eating them), you may just want to give this recipe a shot!

Can you really roast radishes?
You bet! Just like most other veggies, all they need is a toss in olive oil, a few spices, and about 20 minutes in the oven.
You will be blown away by how incredibly sweet and juicy they become when roasted. I love eating them as a side dish, or adding them to a colourful grain bowl or salad.

Can you confirm about how many cups 2 bunches should make?
Hi Stacey! Hard to say exactly as the size of the bunches can vary, but I’d say it will make roughly 2-3 cups 🙂
