I think radishes are so fun for a season-spanning dish! Back in the days when I had a huge garden, I always used to plant them just for the fun of watching how quickly the radishes came up from seeds. Now I don’t have room for radishes in my new garden, but I am happy to report that I did plant my garden over the weekend (with two cute helpers), and I’ll share a post soon about what I’m growing this year.

It was probably the abundance of radishes when I planted them every year that enticed me to try this recipe for Roasted Radishes with Soy Sauce and Toasted Sesame Seed (nearly ten years ago!) and this recipe was long overdue for a photo makeover. And cooked radishes have become rather trendy since then, maybe because radishes have been discovered as a low-carb vegetable option.

Cooked radishes are much milder and sweeter than the spicy flavor they have when they’re raw, and if I had to describe what they taste like I’d say similar to turnips, but slightly different. I love raw radishes, but I also love this recipe for roasted radishes and if you’re looking for a side dish that will be a conversation-starter, I promise this will be something fun and unusual to serve your friends or family!

Wash radishes, trim ends, and cut into half or fourths (to get same-size pieces.) Put radishes on baking sheet and brush with peanut oil (or other oil if you can’t have peanuts.) While radishes roast, prepare the sliced green onion, soy sauce (or soy/sesame) glaze, and sesame seeds. (I used black sesame seeds, but if you use regular white ones I’d toast them for a minute or so in a hot dry pan.) The color of the radishes will fade a bit as they cook.

After about 20 minutes remove the radishes from the oven and brush with the soy sauce (or soy/sesame oil mixture). Sprinkle with sliced green onions. Roast 5-7 minutes more. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve hot.

Roasted Radishes would be a fun side dish for something grilled like Grilled Chicken Kabobs with Asian Marinade or World’s Best Pork Chops for a low-carb meal.

Roasted Radishes with Soy Sauce and Sesame Seeds
(Makes about 4 servings, recipe only slightly adapted from Vegetables Every Day by Jack Bishop.)

Ingredients:
20-25 medium radishes, washed, trimmed and cut into fourths or halves (same-size pieces)
1 1/2 T roasted peanut oil
1 1/2 T soy sauce (use gluten-free soy sauce if needed)
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil (completely optional, but it adds more sesame flavor if you like that)
2 green onions, sliced
2-3 tsp. black sesame seeds (or use regular white sesame seeds and toast for a minute or so in a hot dry pan)

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 425 F. Wash radishes, trim ends, and cut into halves or fourths to make same size pieces.

Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray, put radishes on the baking sheet and brush all sides with the peanut oil, then arrange radishes cut side down for best browning. Roast the radishes about 20 minutes, stirring one or two times.While radishes cook, slice the green onions, and measure the sesame seeds (and toast if needed). If you’re using the sesame oil, mix with the soy sauce in the same bowl you used for the peanut oil.

When radishes are tender and starting to brown, remove from oven, brush with soy sauce or soy-sesame oil mixture, and sprinkle with green onion slices. Put back in oven and roast about 5-7 minutes more.

Sprinkle cooked radishes with sesame seeds and serve hot. I think these might be good with a little Sriracha Rooster Sauce for those who like spicy Asian flavors.
