How to cook radishes
Radishes can be eaten raw or cooked.
Raw, radishes have a peppery flavor with a crisp texture.
Cooked radishes are tender texture and have a mild sweetness.
While I prefer roasting radishes, you can bake them or sauté them in a skillet on your stove top as well with a little oil and seasoning. I’d suggest cooking them over medium-high heat and cooking until they are fork tender.

How to roast radishes and tips
The beauty of this dish is that it is so simple and it is the method that really makes this roasted radishes recipe special.
It always dazzles me just how flavorful and beautiful veggies can be when you roast them with a little oil and salt.
The trick with roasted radishes is to cook them cut side down – This helps them lock in their natural sugars and give them that beautiful caramelization we are looking for in a roasted veggie.
Also, keep an eye on your radishes. Radishes come in all different sizes and all ovens cook a bit differently, so your roasted radishes might cook up fast or take longer than this recipe!
Finally, it is important to roast radishes in a single layer. Giving them space allows them to brown beautifully instead of steam.
