Do you love radishes as much as I do?

Of course you do!

I have been obsessed with these radishes for a long time.  I have used them to top my Collard Greens Stew and put them inside zucchini rolls!

Tips for making these radishes

  • Slice them lengthwise because they will roast evenly
  • Use thick, bulgy radishes for this recipe
  • Make sure the radishes are hard and maybe even a little unripe
  • Refrigerate the roasted radishes after making them, if you don’t use them up right away
  • They won’t last more than 2-3 days after you have made them, so, eat them quickly

Why I love these radishes

They are packed with so much nutrition and they have so many holistic properties.   Their strong flavor makes them just right to be a side dish.

Baking them in the oven makes them juicy and tender.  It also takes away some of that strong flavor. 

Do you know how delicious basil and radishes taste?  It is like a little bit of heavenly flavor in your mouth.  The basil flavor lingers for a while which makes them so delicious.

I put these buttered radishes into a zucchini roll and it was delicious.

You can always use lemon balm butter or Garlic Herb Butter to roast these radishes. They will taste amazing. Or, you can choose from a medley of compound butters to flavor your radish chips.

As you may have worked it out by now, I am a huge fan of making veggie chips. See my eggplant chips obsession and beet chips obsession.

Did you know that butter is good for you?

Version 1 of this recipe

Old Photo - Overhead View of a White Rectangular Serving Tray with Sliced Radishes Arranged in 3 Columns and 6 Rows. White Tray Is Placed Diagnolly From Bottom Left to the Center. To the Left of the Tray, a Pair of Red Chopsticks Rest on a Folded Sushi Mat. The Sushi Mat is Also Placed Diagonaly.

Different recipe, different picture, but they still taste delicious.

Occasionally, I will revisit previous recipes and do a makeover on them. You probably came to this page based on this photo. The Buttered radishes are made with Asian flavors. However, I decided to re-vamp the recipe and bring you the new version you see above. I think you will like it.

  1. Radishes are totally my thing, such a yummy bite in spring! I’ve had them in salad and roasted plenty of times, but not with your flavor combo, yum!! One more way to enjoy one of my fav veggies, score!!

  2. It has never occurred to me to cook radishes, either – much less grill them like this. What a simple, yet brilliant idea… guess what I’m going to be looking for when I go shopping?

    Thank you so much for sharing this lovely spring recipe – don’t suppose you could actually do something about hurrying spring along, could you? 😉

    1. Thank you, Nicole. I have actually consulted with weather and it has agreed that it will come earlier than planned! So, get ready for some beautiful weather. It is just around the corner. 😉

  3. I love the idea of adding Hoisin sauce! I recently made some roasted garlic radishes and now I am so obsessed with radishes. I love to find new ways to add some different flavors!
