Looking for a low-carb alternative to potatoes that still packs in all that savory, tender goodness?

Air fryer radishes are a crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside substitute that mimics the texture of potatoes beautifully while delivering big on flavor!

By roasting the radishes in the air fryer, we remove a lot of that sharp, peppery taste associated with raw radishes.

Combined with the light seasonings, their milder flavor and soft texture are simply delightful. And they’re ready in just 20 minutes!

How Long Do You Cook Radishes in the Air Fryer

We want our radishes to crisp up on the outside and cook to fork-tender perfection on the inside, just like roasted potatoes.

Because of their smaller size, I find that 8-10 minutes in the air fryer is plenty of time. Just be sure your radishes are cut as evenly as possible so they’ll cook at the same rate.

What Do Air Fried Radishes Taste Like?

Raw radishes are known for having a peppery kick, but cooking them at a high temperature really mellows out the flavor.

They become a little sweeter and actually taste very mild. I find the flavor very similar to roasted potatoes or even cauliflower. 

I know some people are skeptical of radishes because their flavor is so sharp when raw.

But I promise, even if you hate raw radishes, you may find yourself loving air fried radishes!

Are Radishes Healthier Than Potatoes?

This all depends on your version of healthy!

Radishes happen to be much lower in carbs and calories than potatoes, so if you’re eating a low-carb diet or watching your caloric intake, they can be a great option.

Radishes are also rich in vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, vitamin K, Niacin, Magnesium, and Zinc.

This makes them a great addition to any diet regardless of whether you’re watching your carbs.

If you’ve been looking for a fun way to incorporate them into your weekly menu that doesn’t involve eating them raw, definitely give this recipe a try!

Variations for this Recipe

Want to mix up your flavors? Feel free to get creative and play around with your seasonings for this recipe!

For example, I love making air fryer radishes with taco seasoning. Just add a tablespoon or so when you’re mixing the chopped radishes with the oil and seasonings. 

Because cooked radishes make a great potato substitute, you can really use any seasonings you would normally use in a potato recipe.

This is a great recipe for experimenting with different flavors!
