Can you freeze roasted radishes?

Yes, you can freeze roasted radishes. Just pop them in the oven on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 350 Fahrenheit to reheat, and serve. They won’t be quite as good as freshly roasted radishes, as they’ll lose a little color, and dry out a tiny bit, but they’ll still be good, and they’ll save you some time! You can microwave to reheat if you’re in a hurry, but microwaving won’t give you the delicious crispy outside you get in the oven.

Do roasted radishes taste like potatoes?

Yes, and no. The first time I tried roasted radishes, I was surprised at how creamy, sweet and delicious they were! Roasting radishes mellows the spiciness and makes them mellower and sweeter – much like how roasting garlic makes it sweeter and mellower.

Radishes do mellow when they’re roasted, but they definitely keep their distinctive radish flavor. They’re a wonderful alternative to roasted potatoes, but keep in mind that they’re definitely spicier and more flavorful. Roasted radishes are one of my favorite vegetarian keto snack recipes!

Garlic roasted radishes variation

These radishes are wonderful as is, but my favorite variation is to add fresh garlic. To make garlic roasted radishes, simply add two freshly cropped garlic cloves to radishes before roasting. So good!

Other roasted radish variations

While garlic radishes are delicious, these other variation are wonderful as well.

Rosemary roasted radishes – You can use either fresh rosemary, or dried rosemary, to make roasted radishes extra special. For rosemary roasted radishes with fresh rosemary, add two tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary to radishes before roasting. If you’re using dried rosemary, add 1 teaspoon dried rosemary before roasting.

Roasted radishes with onions – Sweet, perfectly caramelized onions are a delicious accompaniment. Chop one onion into rings, and add to radishes before roasting.

What does cooked radish taste like?

The cooking process really mellows out these radishes. They still have the distinctive radish taste, but they’re sweeter, creamier, and the flavor is much more mellow.

Do you peel radishes before cooking?

We don’t peel the radishes before cooking. During roasting the radish skins become perfectly crispy on the outside, and creamy sweet on the inside.

What goes good with radishes?

We love these roasted radishes alone, just as a sweet, crispy snack!

Wondering what to serve with roasted radishes?

They also go well with roasted chicken, or even as a fun substitute for roasted potatoes along side a roast beef. I love making these as an interesting, and unique, side dish at Thanksgiving or for Christmas dinner.
