I'm a HUGE fan of radishes. And not just raw in salads! When cooked, that pepperiness mellows, leaving a pleasant mustard taste. This is a great recipe to try if you've never had them cooked, and if you love it, check out my recipes for roasted radishes with lemon and butter, and my low carb loaded radishes.
For this recipe I have used store-bought radish chips. I don't always see them in stores, but when I do, I buy them!
I used them before in my recipe for pickled radish and cucumber salad. They're as attractive as they are convenient, but of course you could always make your own from whole radishes. You'll need about 8 ounces for this recipe.
How to Make Low Carb Fried Radishes
Heat some butter and olive oil in a cast iron skillet or non-stick skillet. Add some garlic paste or minced garlic and stir it into the fats. Add the radish chips, together with some dried thyme.
Continue to cook for about ten minutes, or until the radishes are fork-tender. Turn them frequently while cooking to ensure the chips all get some color.
Season with salt and pepper to taste, garnish with fresh parsley leaves, then serve.
I love how the ridges on the radish chips catch on the skillet and look like they've been grilled!
