Was this one of them?

I am almost certain that few, if any people, would choose radishes as one of their favorite vegetables.  However, after this recipe, you just might change your mind!  I am about to prove to you that not only are radishes good for you, but when cooked right, they are quite tasty!

Roasted Radish Chips

Servings: 1

Ingredients

8-10 radishes, washed and sliced into thin pieces
EVOO cooking spray
fine sea salt
black pepper
garlic powder
onion powder

*Sorry, I do not measure the spices for this recipe! 😉

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray generously with EVOO cooking spray.

3. Place radish slices onto the baking sheet in a single layer.

4. Spray the radish slices with EVOO cooking spray.

5. Sprinkle the radish slices with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.

6. Roast for 15 minutes.

7. Remove radishes from the oven and flip.  Roast an additional 5-15 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.  Be certain to watch them carefully towards the end of the roasting process to prevent burning.

Roasting radishes will forever change your view of this normally not-so-popular vegetable.  The roasting process almost entirely removes the bitter taste that is normally associated with radishes.  Instead, you are left with a crispy radish chip that resembles the taste of a starchy vegetable, like a potato.  The seasonings take the delicious flavor of this vegetable over the top.  I can promise you, you have never tasted a radish that tastes as good as these!

I enjoy eating these as a night-time snack.  I generally pair them with other vegetables, like carrots and celery, and love to dip them in hummus or Dijon mustard.  I am pretty certain you will never find a chip-based snack containing only 20 calories for an entire serving!

Roasted radish chips also make a great addition to a salad.

Still skeptical?  Give roasting radishes a try!  I mean really…what have you got to lose? 😉

    Okay, so I am definitely intrigued as I would never think to do this, but you make them sound pretty dang good..
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl February 12, 2013, 8:47 pm
      You should seriously try them! Roasting them gets rid of nearly all of the "bitter" taste that I normally associate with radishes.

    Wow! I will be trying this, what a great idea! I usually steer-clear of radishes but this may make me change my mind. Thanks!

    I actually really like radishes and can't wait to try them like this!
  • LizForADay February 12, 2013, 9:49 pm
    The only time I have had radishes is in a salad raw. I will definitely have to try roasting them. That is such a good idea. :)
  • nicolamadore February 12, 2013, 11:10 pm
    Im definitely going to give this a try, it seems so strange but Im intrigued :)

    I love it! I make chips out of sweet potato, zucchini and turnips. I've never tried radish. But now I will--thanks!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl February 13, 2013, 10:30 pm
      Ooo..I will have to try that with turnips. I have been wanting to cook with them but haven't figured out exactly how I wanted to go about it. Great idea!
  • jessielovestorun February 13, 2013, 4:59 am
    I went to the grocery store to pick up some radishes for THIS recipe, and couldn't find them anywhere!!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl February 13, 2013, 10:30 pm
      WHAT?? Who knew they were so popular? Or, maybe just completely NOT popular outside of the States. I hope you find some!
  • cookingfortheotherhalf February 13, 2013, 6:58 am
    Hmmm. I have never done this before but I am definitely curious! I will have to try it.
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies February 13, 2013, 7:03 am
    I've always wanted to like radishes, it just hasn't happened. If these are as good as you say, they might be able to redeem themselves.
  • Alex @ therunwithin February 13, 2013, 8:53 am
    radishes are always on sale but I never know what to do with them so I don't buy them, maybe I should try this out...
  • Healthnut Nutrition February 13, 2013, 8:54 am
    I've also never roasted radishes sounds yummy though! I have been meaning to make chia out of them by dehydrating them:)
  • Kerry @ Totes My Oats February 13, 2013, 9:03 am

    • cleaneatingveggiegirl February 13, 2013, 10:33 pm
      Yes, you really should give radishes a second chance! I think they can still win you over ;).
  • Brittany February 13, 2013, 4:58 pm
    OH my goodness, I am SO making this!! I do like radishes, but don't eat them all that often!
  • Oh My Veggies (@ohmyveggies) February 13, 2013, 5:04 pm
    Ahh, where were you 2 weeks ago when I harvested a bunch of radishes and didn't know what to do with them?! Well, next time I'll have to try this. :)
  • Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets February 13, 2013, 5:39 pm
    I actually like radishes and a few weeks ago, I was drowning in them because I had so many coming in my CSA share. I would have loved this recipe back then. Oh well, I will get them again and then I will roast my radishes.
  • o2befitmom February 13, 2013, 5:50 pm
