Can You Cook Radishes?

Yes, you absolutely can cook radishes! You can make roasted radishes that taste very similar, but I’ve found I actually prefer this fried keto radish recipe. They crisp up a bit better.

What Do Sauteed Radishes Taste Like?

Sauteed radishes taste similar to potatoes, with a little bite of bite to them. They are a lot more mellow than raw ones.

Radishes get a soft, potato-like texture when you cook them, and just like potatoes, they taste great when you fry them to get crispy on the outside.

How To Cook Radishes

If you’re wondering how to cook radishes and haven’t done it before, frying is a great place to start.

Today I’m going to show you how to make pan fried radishes:

  • Prep the radishes. Wash them, and trim the greens and roots. Slice them lengthwise into quarters.

TIP: Slicing radishes into quarters creates more surface area for browning. If your radishes are large, you can even cut them into eighths!

  • Melt butter. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it’s hot and starting to foam.
  • Add radishes to pan. Place the quartered radishes in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper.

TIP: A single layer is super important – it ensures that they brown evenly and get crisp on the outside.

  • Cook radishes. Saute the keto fried radishes, stirring occasionally until the radishes are soft and browned.

TIP: Don’t stir this radish recipe constantly, or the fried radishes won’t brown.

Are Radishes Keto Friendly?

Yes, radishes on keto are fully approved! By nature, radishes are very low in calories, carbs, and sugars, making them naturally low carb and keto.

Do Sauteed Radishes Have Any Carbs?

Sauteed radishes do have carbs, but not very many! In this cooked radishes recipe, each 1/2 cup serving has just 2 grams net carbs. You can even double the serving size to 1 cup if you like.

Fried radishes makes a great keto side dish to just about any meal, without adding very many carbs.

Can You Make Keto Radishes Ahead?

You can definitely make low carb radish recipes like this one ahead of time. Because radishes hold up well to cooking, there’s no reason you can’t make your sauteed radishes ahead, store them in the refrigerator, and then re-heat when you’re ready to eat them.

Can You Freeze Fried Radishes?

You can freeze this easy radish recipe. But, because radishes are made up of mostly water, their texture will be slightly affected. Freeze if you must, or simply cut the recipe in half so that you can eat it fresh.

The radishes will last 2-3 months in the freezer. Thaw overnight in the fridge and then reheat in the microwave (they won’t be crisp this way) or a hot skillet, until heated through.
