Crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, these air fryer radishes will be your new favorite way to cook radishes. Baking the radishes transforms their flavor and texture from spicy, crisp, and peppery to a sweeter, milder, creamier vegetable, with similarities to roasted yellow potatoes. No air fryer? No problem! See the notes following the recipe for how to make these in a standard oven.

  • 2 bunches of radishes
  • 2 teaspoons oil, such as avocado oil, olive oil, or any oil of choice
  • salt
  • garlic powder
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • chopped fresh herbs for garnish (optional), such as chives or parsley


  • Remove the stems and leaves from the radishes and discard or save for another use. Trim off the ends of the radishes. Cut the radishes in half lengthwise.
  • Add the radishes to a bowl with the oil and measure the salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika with your heart. Mix well to combine.
  • Cook the radishes in a 400F air fryer for 10 to 12 minutes, or until nice and crispy. Garnish with chopped herbs, if using.


Depending on the model of your air fryer, these may take a few minutes less or more than indicated in the recipe. Check the radishes every 5 minutes or so to make sure they do not burn. 
To roast these in a standard home oven, add the seasoned radishes to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in a 400F oven for 20 to 25 minutes. 
Feel free to use any seasonings you love here; chili powder or a spice blend, such as baharat, would work nicely in place of paprika. 
These are a perfect side dish, along side ham, chicken, or fish. They’re also significantly lower in carbs than roasted potaotes.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
