Roasted Radishes

Radishes are often overlooked, but they make a delicious and healthy side dish when roasted in the oven. This simple recipe transforms radishes into a savory, fork-tender side for your main course. Adding spices, sour cream, and optional bacon bits elevates this dish to a new level of flavor. Here’s how you can easily make oven-roasted spiced radishes at home.

You’ll need:

  • Radishes, halved
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Paprika
  • Optional: sour cream and bacon bits for garnish

To make:

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Start by heating your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare the Radishes: Combine the halved radishes in a medium bowl with good olive oil. Sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika over the radishes. Mix well, ensuring each radish is evenly coated with oil and the spice mixture. 
  3. Arrange the Radishes for Roasting: Line a baking sheet or a casserole dish with aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Arrange the spiced radishes cut side down on the sheet. Spreading them out evenly will allow them to roast properly.
  4. Roast the Radishes: Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the radishes for about 25-30 minutes. They should be fork-tender and nicely caramelized on the outside.
  5. Final Seasoning: Once roasted, remove the radishes from the oven and taste them. If needed, adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper. 
  6. Garnish and Serve: Add a dollop of sour cream to the radishes for a creamy texture and rich flavor before serving. If you like a bit of crunch and extra taste, sprinkle some bacon bits over the top. These garnishes add a wonderful contrast to the soft and spicy radishes.
