Roasted Radishes

Radishes have that peppery, taste that some people can’t handle. It burns their mouth up. Put horse in front of radish, and it’s just a more extreme burn.

 But radishes are super good for people with pooping problems (and high blood pressure, but HBP isn’t funny), and there must be a lot of those people because Shakira is dancing around acting like she’s happy in commercials for poop yogurt. Eat some radishes and you’ll be smiling and regular (in the bathroom, she’ll still be richer and better looking everywhere else) like Shakira.

 To be very clear: ‘detox’, ‘cleanse’, and ‘flush’ are just polite ways of saying “tearing up the toilet” 

So, what if you want the health benefits of the peppery prune, but can’t get down with the taste? I got you on that. We’ll roast them.


2 bunches radishes, trimmed and quartered (Make a pesto with the greens)

2 T olive oil

1 T paprika

1 t coriander

1 t turmeric

1 t allspice

Kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400F

  2. Toss all ingredients together in a bowl until radishes are well coated

  3. Place radishes skin side up on a parchment lined baking tray and bake for 35 minutes.

  4. Now it looks like a roasted potato. Sike!
