I love potatoes, they are one of my favorite foods on the planet. The problem is that they can be a food with no brakes for me. I still enjoy them but not as often as I used to. So, what do I do when I am craving some roasted potatoes? Roasted radishes. Yep, you read that right. I didn’t believe it at first either, but they are delicious!

Now they don’t exactly replace potatoes but they have a great texture when roasted. Roasted radishes are even better alongside crispy roasted brussels sprouts and bacon. Bacon makes everything better. I bake the bacon right on the sheet pan that the veggies will roast on. This adds so much flavor! To keep this Whole 30, make sure you read the labels on your bacon. Pederson’s Farms and Applegate are two of my favorite brands.
There are a couple of things to remember when you are roasting veggies. The first, and in my opinion, the most important is not to over-crowd the pan. If they are too close together, they will end up steaming and they won’t get that beautiful crispy texture. I also love to roast at a higher temperature, which is why I use avocado oil . It has a higher smoke point and the high heat will not change the flavor of the oil.
