Roasted Radishes with Honey

Last Updated on August 15, 2020 by Ellen Christian

I hate radishes. Yes, you heard me right. I hate them and always have. After I had learned that radishes are one of the foods that may help your pH level, I decided to give them a try one more time. Not only may radishes help your pH level, but they also are high in Vitamin C, help digestion, and may help remove toxins from the body.

Roasted Radishes with Honey

Since I know I don’t like radishes plain, I decided to try Roasted Radishes with Honey instead. Roasting radishes will help take out some of the strong taste.  If you use coconut oil and local honey in this recipe, it even qualifies as a Paleo side dish. If you’re not following the Paleo diet, you can certainly use butter instead but the coconut oil gives it a nice taste.

This recipe is very quick and easy to make. If you have something you’re making in the oven already, it’s a matter of a few seconds to put this together as a side dish.  Roasting does help mellow the taste and the added hint of sweetness from the coconut oil, and the honey give it a slightly sweet taste that I enjoyed.

When they’re done, you can eat them as is, or sprinkle a little bit of Feta cheese and some parsley, mint or basil over the top.  I served them on a bed of arugula, but you could also serve them on beet greens.

  1. I have to admit I have never tried a roasted radish. Sure I have had raw radishes in salads and the like, but this looks amazing, I am sure this would make a great addition to any meal.
  2. I too do not care for radishes. I believe the hubby likes them though, so he might enjoy them prepared this way.
  3. Oh my, I can eat them raw and love them that way! I usually slice them in my salad but add vinegar and coconut oil to most everything anyway. I avoid all kinds of sugar, even honey, so I'd leave out the sweetener. Not many veggies I don't like but carrot is what I eat pounds of each week--love them.
  4. This looks really good! I hate radishes, too, but want to be able to eat them because they're so healthy. I'm going to try this, and I've pinned and printed it.
  5. I am always looking for ways to get more veggies in. I need to try radishes this way they really aren't my favorite vegetable.
