Why I use radishes instead of potatoes
I love potatoes as much as the next person, however, their high carb content makes them altogether impossible to incorporate into a keto diet. Since I wanted to develop a traditional roasted potato dish that is low in carbs, I decided to try out using radishes instead, and, I must say, it turned out to be a pretty great swap. In fact, they wound up tasting amazing!
When you roast radishes properly, their bitter flavor is eliminated and the result tastes just like potatoes! It is truly a great swap, and absolutely zero flavor is sacrificed in the process.
Great for the low-FODMAP diet
If you are unfamiliar with the low-FODMAP diet and what it means, I will fill you in! FODMAP stands for “fermentable oligo-, di-, mono-saccharides, and polyols (a collection of short-chain carbohydrates).” Foods that are high-FODMAP commonly contribute to bloating and abdominal pain.
There are a LOT of foods that fall into the high-FODMAP category, including legumes (chickpeas, baked, kidney, and lima beans, etc.), dairy products, wheat, high-fructose fruits (such as apples and peaches), and various vegetables including asparagus, peas, celery, cauliflower, and more. Because the list of pain-triggering foods is so long, it can make following the diet extremely difficult.
That being said, it is always helpful to see recipes that explicitly state that they are low-FODMAP friendly, and this is one of those recipes! Because of the combination of ingredients and the use of radishes in this recipe, this is a GREAT dish for those following a low-FODMAP diet.

These oven roasted radishes are full of nutritional benefits!
In addition to being great addition to a low-FODMAP diet, radishes have a bunch of nutritional benefits! Radishes are a great source of potassium, Vitamins C and K, calcium, and magnesium, just to name a few! They are full of antioxidants that support the skin and heart, blood pressure, digestion, and overall health!
For this recipe, I chose to use avocado oil. Though there isn’t much of a difference between that and olive oil (both have similar nutritional contents, chemical makeups, and calorie counts), avocado oil actually has a higher smoke point, making it a better choice to roast vegetables with. They do have slightly different tastes, however, and the taste of the avocado oil compliments this dish quite well!
The perfect side dish
This dish works so well paired with a variety of main dishes! Try it with Cheesy Chicken Fritters, Keto Meatballs, or Instant Pot Chicken Wings. If you want to keep the entire meal low-FODMAP, try it with this Low-FODMAP Pressure Cooker Italian Beef! Or, you could even pair it with additional side dishes such as Low Carb Stuffing or Bacon Green Bean Casserole for a Thanksgiving-worthy feast!
This recipe yields six servings, making it GREAT for dinner parties or gatherings with a bunch of friends! Everyone will love it!
