Radish Chips

Radish Chips

The simple radish is certainly a divider - you either love or hate them. It’s rare to find someone who sits on the fence with this little red bulb of goodness.

I’m definitely on the love side of the fence and will normally throw some thinly sliced radishes into salads such as my Tuna Poke or in my Avocado Radish and Apple Salad .

For a novel twist on how to use radishes (other than raw and in salads) and possibly a great way of introducing this humble little root vegetable to kids, why not bake them and create some to munch on.

Although I love the peppery taste of raw radishes, baking them seems to dissolve some of that tartness or peppery taste which kids and adults usually associate with radishes.

are a great snack alternative and so easy and quick to prepare.


Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 1

Ingredients
1 Bunch radish
Fresh rosemary
Fresh thyme
Sea salt

Allow one bunch of radish per person.


Method
  • Wash and trim the greenery from the radishes.

  • Thinly slice the radishes. I used a mandolin however, if you don’t own one try using a vegetable peeler – you will get similar results.

  • Thinly slice the radishes using a mandolin if you dont have a mandolin you can still create thin slices using a vegetable peeler.


  • Pre-heat the oven to 170°C.

  • Finely dice the sea salt, rosemary and thyme and ensure the ingredients are well mixed together.

  • Cover a baking tray with alfoil paper and lay the radish slices onto the tray. Similarly when baking any vegetables leave some space between the slices otherwise the vegetables will steam rather than bake.

  • Sprinkle the radishes with the rosemary, thyme and sea salt mixture. (You can drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the radishes however, in this instance I didn’t – refer to my notes below)

  • Sprinkle the radishes with seasoning made from sea salt, rosemary and thyme. I didnt use any olive oil however you may chose to drizzle the radishes with a little extra virgin olive oil.


  • Place the radishes in the pre-heated and oven and cook for approximately 6-8 minutes (ensuring they don’t start to burn).

  • As they start to turn slightly brown and the edges start to curl flip the radishes and cook for a further 5-6 minutes.

  • Eat immediately!

  • Notes
    I only used one bunch of radish as I’m the only one that really eats the vegetable in our household but if you’re looking to make a larger quantity, I would estimate one bunch per person.

    Additionally, I wanted to bake these chips without any oil, so once they start to cool down they may lose some of the initial crispness that you get once they’re out of the oven.

    To make the radish chips a little more crispy, simply drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil over the radish slices at the seasoning stage and just prior to placing in the oven to bake.
