12ouncesradishes, trimmed340 grams (approximately 2 bunches of radishes)
¼teaspoon dried parsley
salt and pepper, to taste
cooking oil spray of choice
For the loaded toppings:
2slicesbacon(choose one with no added sugar)
1ounceshredded cheddar28 grams (about ¼ cup)
1tablespoonchopped garlic chives(or regular chives from the grocery store)
Wash your radishes and trim the ends. Cut them into halves (or into quarters, if they are large). Pour the olive oil on them and stir.
Mix the garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt, and pepper together. Sprinkle this mixture over the radishes and stir well.
Mist your air fryer tray with the cooking oil spray. Spread your radishes out in a single layer on the tray.
Put the tray in the top rack position in your air fryer oven. Bake for 10 minutes at 400°F (200°C). Then flip your radishes and cook them for an additional 10 minutes at 400°F (200°C).
While your radishes cook, prepare your loaded toppings. Cook the bacon in a skillet, and crumble or chop it.
Once your air fried radishes are finished cooking, you can top them. Sprinkle the cheddar over the radishes while they are still hot. Dollop on the sour cream, and sprinkle the bacon crumbles on top. Finish the dish with the chives and scallions. Bon appetit!
This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). Air fryer roasted radishes provides over 200 calories for half the recipe. You can probably guess what I will say here but skip the loaded radish toppings for level 1. These air fried radishes are lightly seasoned and make a perfectly respectable side without the bacon, cheese, and so on.Are radishes good for weight loss? Radishes are a low calorie and high volume food that can help volume eaters stay full on fewer calories. Radishes are an excellent addition to meals that promote weight loss (if cooked with little or no oil and sugar).Are radishes healthier cooked or raw? Both cooked and raw radishes are healthy, and I include both in my diet. Radishes do lose certain nutrients (particularly vitamin C) with cooking, though that doesn’t mean you should skip cooked vegetables.There are lots of health claims about radishes online, such as that they are a super food and anti-inflammatory. Some claims are bogus while others are rooted in truth. For example, radishes contain potassium, a mineral that does help to lower high blood pressure.Nutrition information is for one serving of the recipe with the toppings.
