Check out this recipe for How to Roast Radishes in a Roasting Tray for a delicious way to enjoy this root vegetable!
The radishes I’m using are from my garden and they are very large, brilliantly red in color, full of a fresh peppery flavor and a nice addition to any salad or appetizer. It might be difficult to find radishes this large at your local market, but the smaller varieties will work just as well as the ones I have.
Radishes are topped with an abundance of large scalloped leaves. The leaves are edible and can be eaten cooked just like other vegetable greens. Radish leaves are delicious added to soups, stews and stocks, and cooked as a side dish, on their own.
Since it is possible that your radishes will be smaller than mine, you might wish to cut yours in half, and scatter them over a salad or present them on lettuce leaves with goat milk cheese, brie or gorgonzola.

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:
- 8 large radishes – fresh, thoroughly scrubbed & rinsed, with leaves removed, leaving about 1 inch of the stem attached; the little stems look pretty for presentation
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- freshly cracked pepper – to taste
- sea salt – to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Trim off radish roots, if excessively long.
- Place radishes in a bowl with olive oil & toss. Using your hands, massage the olive oil into the radishes, making sure that all outside surfaces of the radishes including the 1 inch stems, are well coated.
- Place roasting tray on a baking sheet and place radishes on the roasting tray with stems facing down, filling as many of the holes you choose to use.
- Roast radishes for 20 minutes & check for doneness to see if they are knife tender. If they not done, return to oven & continue roasting for another 20 minutes.
- Note: Check every 10 minutes, to be on the safe side. Smaller radishes will cook sooner than the ones I used in this cooking show.
- If, at any point, it looks like the radishes are browning too much, cover with a loose tent of aluminum foil.
- Remove radishes from the oven, and cut them into quarters or halves to serve on a salad. You could serve them whole or halved on lettuce leaves, along with a good strong cheese of some kind.
Serve & enjoy your delicious roasted radishes.
